CSA season is in full swing and so I expect to pick up on my blogging. Here's a quick recipe for raw, dehydrated Turnip chips.
The turnip is an interesting veggie...both the root and the green are edible. The root is packed w.Vitamin C and the green is high in Vitamins A, C, and K, Folate and Calcium (as most dark greens are). Turnip greens are also a great source of fiber and have a small bit of protein....
I got some great small, white turnips called Haruki turnips from my CSA at Newton Community Farm. They are yummy, with a fairly mild flavor. I figured they'd be nice to dehydrate. So I whipped out my spiralizer and went to town....
I used the flat blade of my Paderno spirilazer to make some thin turnip curls:
I made a marinade of unrefined sesame oil, Nama Shoyu, fresh lemon juice and a bit of agave, and let the turnips marinate in it for about an hour before dehydrating.
I dehydrated the turnips at 105 degrees overnight and here was the result:
Yummy, crunchy sesame flavored turnip chips. They were great as a snack but they were even better topped on salad. Delish :)
