Homemade Spinach Chips!

I love potato chips, but it is difficult to slice the potato very thin to have a crispy homemade potato chips. Instead I have a bunch of spinach given by my relatives, so I made this veggie chips. This recipe I got from Radita Puspa‘s mom. So thank you for the recipe!

I consider the spinach chips as snacks and complements for my meal. As a snack I eat the chip with tomato sauce, and it is delicious!

I have tried this recipe 4 times. I tried with thick flour mixture, thin flour mixture, I mix the mixture with flaxseeds and then I mix with nutritional yeast. All of them are just fine! If you use thicker mixture the chips will be hard when they are not crispy anymore but if you use very thin flour mixture it will be soft and chewy when it loses ita crispiness.

With my recipe you will have about 20 spinach leaves with various size of the leaves, but mostly they are as big as my palm. My kids really love the spinach chips!

A heap of spinach chips for my sons
