I don’t know why I am finding it hard to eat a proper plate of food these days, with more than two ingredients? That is not like me at all, but I am more favourable of finger food these last couple of weeks. Like these healthy Spicy Carrot Chips I made and served with homemade hummus. This is life right now!
It Carrot be more Healthy
Carrots are packed with goodness – antioxidants, fibre, vitamins and minerals. We learned as children that carrots help with eyesight (the bunny in glasses image stays with me until this day). It is however beneficial for more than just your sense of vision. Beta-carotene, the antioxidant found in carrots, converts to Vit A and therefore this vegetable gets top marks for maintaining healthy skin, nails, and eyes.
The Best Carrot Chips
We always have carrots in our fridge. I often use it for a fresh juice combined with apple, pineapple, and ginger. It’s also a very nifty quick snack to grab when you are in a rush and need to dampen that hunger pains. My son loves snacking on them and I often include raw carrots in his lunchbox. Today though, I am sharing these Spicy Carrot Chips recipe, because your life will not be complete if you don’t try them!
I sprinkled the raw carrot sticks with some almond and coconut flour and a pinch of Moroccan spice. You can combine any combination of spices if you like – turmeric, cumin, coriander – these are all great contenders. Carrot Chips might just become my new favourite thing!
