Chicory chips are incredibly delicious and healthy. And when they're married with salty tamari sauce, they are simply out of this world.
As much as much as I love flowers, I love fresh greens too. So, when Jedd came home with a huge head of chicory the other day, I swooned. Looking at the dark leafy head reminded me how much chicory reminds me of kale. Then I thought: “Why not make chicory chips?”
I decided to make the chips even more delicious by adding tamari to them. So, not only do I have a massive amount of an awesome snack food - I have a massive amount of a really healthy snack food.
Chicory is a digestive aid and it is good for the circulatory system and blood. It's also a really great source of calcium, potassium and vitamin A. So tonight when we're watching television, we will be chowing down on these and feeling somewhat virtuous.
Tamari Chicory Chips
6 pieces of chicory
1 tablespoon of olive oil
2 teaspoons of tamari sauce
Preheat oven to 225 degrees.
Wash and thoroughly dry the chicory. Discard the very tough ends. Rough chop the rest. Add it to a rimmed sheet pan and toss with the olive oil, pepper and tamari. Bake for 15 minutes and then check the chips. Pull off whichever chips are done and continue baking the rest until they are all crispy.
