How to make Beetroot Crisps - Step by Step with pictures

Beetroot Crisps are delicious and really easy to make, so here is a step-by-step on how to make them from scratch! It takes a little time to do but the results are really worth it. 

You can use this same method to make crisps out of other similar vegetables like parsnips, carrots, potato or sweet potato and because you use Cornflour to dust them, they are also gluten-free.

First thing to do is put on a pair of food grade gloves because the beetroot juice will be really difficult to get off your hands! 

Cut off the top and the bottom of the beetroot and then cut off the rest of the skin. Now you're ready to go.

How to make Beetroot Crisps.

1. Slice the beetroot with a sharp knife (or a food mandolin) as fine as you can, the thinner the better.

2. Toss the beetroot slices in Cornflour in a bowl. Make sure each one is completely covered.

3. Rub each dusted beetroot slice to press the cornflour into them.

4. Using a pastry brush (or a small new paint brush) rub each beetroot slice to remove as much cornflour as possible. This is the bit that takes the most time but it is important that you clean them off as best you can.

5. Continue cleaning the cornflour off each slice until you have them all done.

6. Fry the beetroot crisps in vegetable oil or rapeseed oil at 170°C (335°F) in a deep fryer (or what ever you use to make your chips in at home) and cook them until they stop bubbling completely. You can also cook them in an Air Fryer for 15 - 20 minutes until completely dry.

7. The crisps will stop bubbling in the oil when they are ready to take out.

8. Spread the cooked beetroot crisps on a dry cloth for 5 minutes to cool and they are now ready to eat!

Remember, you can use the same method to make your own homemade crisps out of all sorts of similar vegetables and there is a great pleasure you get when sharing them with someone and saying that you made them yourself! 

Enjoy your crisps and do share this post if you wish!
