Baked Romaine Chips

While it is still pretty early to have spring produce at your fingertips, I wanted to share with you this recipe for Baked Romaine Chips as they are so good and basically good for you!  In under 10 minutes, you can have a salty treat that won't break your diet.



I'm joining the Baking Bloggers with their theme of Baking with Spring Vegetables. Romaine lettuce is a later growing spring crop, mainly because it can tolerate the heat more than other lettuces. Most gardeners plant their romaine after the spinach and chard have already made their appearances.



I love using romaine, but most people will want to cut out the thick white vein.  It doesn't crisp up much and takes away from the chip factor. Some of my family likes the contrast, so there's that.  That vein holds the bitter flavor that is associated with romaine lettuce, so removing it gives you a slightly more sweet taste.

  3. Would never have thought of doing that. I guess I'm picking up a head of Romaine so I can try this. I've have Romaine briefly braised on a grill, and that's amazing as well.

  5. That sounds very interesting. I will definitely try this. I am trying to find snacks that have the crunch of a chip but not the fat and the grease of the chip.
