Zucchini Chips

Servings: 1-2

INGREDIENTS

1 large zucchini

2 tablespoons olive oil

¼ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon pepper

½ teaspoon garlic powder

PREPARATION

1. Preheat oven to 400˚F (200˚C).

2. Cut zucchini into ⅛-inch to ¼-inch slices.

3. Arrange slices on a nonstick baking sheet. Don’t overlap the zucchini, or they won’t dry out properly.

4. Brush slices with olive oil, then season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Flip slices over and repeat.

5. Bake for 25-35 minutes, flipping halfway.

6. Allow slices to cool to room temperature. Slices will continue to get crispier as they cool.

Mango Fruit Rollers

INGREDIENTS

3-4 mangoes

PREPARATION

1. Blend the mango flesh until it forms a thick paste, a few bits are totally acceptable.

2. Spread an even, thin layer of the fruit onto a baking tray lined with baking paper, smooth it out using a spatula or cake knife.

3. Bake in the center of an oven for 3-4 hours. 3.5 hours was our sweet spot, but all ovens vary – it’s worth checking on them from the 3 hour mark. You want the fruit rollers to still be a tiny bit springy but not too juicy or too dry. The edges will likely dry out more quickly than the center.

4. Take the baking paper out of the tray and cut off the super dry edges on each side.

5. Roll up the mango, including the baking paper and cut into segments about 1.5 inches apart.
