Why munch on boring carrot sticks when you can turn raw carrots into crispy, delicate chips instead? A vegetable peeler is the only tool you’ll need to make these sweet, paper-thin crisps that are perfect for healthy snacking or as a garnish for your next salad (we recommend our kale chip recipe for this, as well).
Extra carrots? Use them up for dessert with our easy Carrot Cake recipe.
What to buy: The carrot slices shrink considerably when baked, so buy the thickest carrots you can find to end up with wider, sturdier chips.
Special equipment: Use a Y-shaped vegetable peeler to shave the carrots into thin, even slices. These types of peelers have a thin, flexible blade that takes off less flesh, and they easily maneuver around odd-shaped fruits and vegetables. They’re also great for turning vegetables, cheese, or chocolate into thin shavings. They can be found in most kitchen stores or online.
