Beet Chips with Spicy Honey Mayo

beet chips
You may or may not have noticed, but I’m kind of obsessed with beets. I’ve made Beet FriesPickled Beets and even Beet Hummus. And now Beet Chips with Spicy Honey Mayo! Not only are they tasty and healthy, but neon pink (or golden yellow). And who doesn’t love neon food?? Beets are rich in vitamin C, fiber, and some even consider them to be a natural aphrodisiac. Can’t hurt! Pass by the canned variety in favor of the more flavorful fresh. Totally versatile, beets are perfect roasted, pickled, raw or in this case, fried.

Sprinkled with a little salt, these crunchy chips are delicious on their own, and even better when paired with a sweet and spicy pareve mayonnaise. Sort of a modern twist on apples dipped in honey. I used just red beets, but throw in some golden ones as well for a colorful addition to your Rosh Hashanah meal.

    I love how when I have some food I don’t know what to do with, you’ve got a crazy creative idea like these. We LOVE beets here and our CSA share has us swimming in them. I’m starting to run out of clever ideas, but these look amazing. I am making them right now. Tonight.
