These recipes to make your own crisps are ideal if you are a crisp-aholic. Not just concerns over the ingredients, but there are also real concerns over crisp packaging. You can’t recycle it easily and there are now concerns about biodegradable packaging – a good idea, but if too many eucalyptus trees are used to create it, these flammable trees can cause forest fires, as they already have done in Portugal.
If you fancy a bash, here are simple recipes. The key is to use a mandolin, to slice potatoes very thin. Choose a good brand like OXO Good Grips, with a safety guard. You don’t want a sliced off finger in your crisps! Try these Homemade Baked Potato Chips (The Simple Veganista).
Vegetable Crisps (So Vegan) are made with carrot, sweet potato and beetroot, along with spices and some nutritional yeast, for a cheesy flavour.
Baked Beet Chips (Minimalist Baker) are infused with rosemary and speckled with sea salt.
