Servings: 4

Ingredients:

  • 2 large beets, thinly sliced
  • Natural rice vinegar
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt

Instructions:

  • Placed sliced beets in a large pot, and add rice vinegar until beets are just covered. Bring to a boil, then turn off heat and allow beets to soak for 15 minutes. Drain.
  • Add olive oil to coat bottom of large skillet, add one sprig of rosemary and heat over medium heat.
  • Once oil is hot, carefully add beets in a single layer and fry until they begin to crisp, about 1-2 minutes.
  • Transfer chips to a paper towel-lined plate and repeat process until all beet slices are cooked. Add additional oil to pan, as necessary.
  • Sprinkle with sea salt and remaining sprig of rosemary and serve warm.  

To avoid the skillet, simply bake beet slices on a parchment-lined baking sheet at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes.

Health benefits:
Beets are rich in essential vitamins and minerals, such as potassium, magnesium, iron, and vitamins A, B and C, and they are particularly beneficial for pregnant women. Additionally, rosemary has been shown to reduce inflammation, increase blood flow and stimulate the immune system.
