I hope you have some zucchini in the house. If not and you are in Australia, Aldi has zucchini on special this week so STOCK UP because once you make these zucchini chips you will become obsessed and want to make them over and over.
While you are at Aldi getting the zucchini, pick up the two different forms of Parmesan you can find in their fridge section. That is the only other thing you need to make these zucchini chips. I like the two different kinds because they have slightly different flavours – both are grated, but one of them is almost like a Parmesan crumb and I use it when I make the healthy chicken strips.
This may well be the simplest recipe I ever post here – so easy even those who don’t love cooking could easily create this (waves to Mitchell). It involves three simple ingredients two of which are cheese – plus you can add spices if you like – and you do not need any oil at all if you have baking paper handy.
1. Peel the zucchini if you like, chop it into chips. Lay it out on baking paper on your tray.
2. Sprinkle the Parmesan over the zucchini. Add any spices you like at this time.
3. Bake in the oven @200C for 20-30 minutes.
You can take them out at 20 minutes – which is the photo above. But if you leave them in a little longer the cheese gets more crispy. I have cooked them for 40 minutes before and they turned out great but that was with a full oven of chips on fish and chip night. Here they are at 30.
The first time you make them, try one at 20, if you like them take out a few, then leave the rest in for 10 more minutes. Then next time you will know how long to cook them for.
