Spinach chips

Chips and other crunchy goodies have been moving the food industry world for decades. The combination of salt, frequent additives to highlight flavor and magic crunchy perception while eating develop consumers into addicts.

The fact is that common commercial production of chips and alike products involves quite high temperature causing Maillard reaction (= development of carcinogens). Another great weakness is the presence of various additives, mainly from the category of flavoring agents and flavor engancers - not everybody likes it.

Balanced diet enthusiasts will tend to search for products that will support their health. And today we will prepare such one. Its production is absolutely simple, the results are more than surprising, but it depends on how many of us see it...


Spinach leaves are washed, dried softly and put into a larger bowl. We add a tea spoonful of nutritional yeasts, half of a tea spoonful of dried garlic and a bigger pinch of himalayan salt. The mixture is than sprinkeled with olive oil and all ingredients are mixed thoroughly.

When the spinach is wrapped in the spicy mixture, we put the leaves into a dryer and leave them for about 8 hours there. It is best to dry the spinach leaves at about 40 grades of Celsius so that we don´t destroy the enzymes, vitamins and other precious substances appearing in leavy vegetable. The reward after hours of waiting is in a form of fantastically crunchy garlic chips that even dogged opponents of "healthy diet" will enjoy.

So enjoy the crunchy feeling…
