My heart beets for you
In honor of Jey’s mom, Jey is collecting heart healthy recipes that will culminate in a blog round up similar to mine, with her donation going to the American Heart Association. You can read and Jey’s event and her mom here.
I was happy to participate in this event. Most of the recipes on my blog are “heart healthy” but I wanted to be sure to pick something really special for Jey.
I decided to play off the idea of a beating heart by making something with beets.
Beet chips! No, they aren’t potpurri, although they look like some sweet smelling flower petals. These are a heart healthy, and easy, snack to whip up when you have the munchies. They taste great without salt (if you have a heart condition) and are slightly sweet.
They are a heart-healthy side dish to a sandwich!
Preheat oven to 250*. Wash, peel, and slice beets. Make sure the slices are very thin (I used my mandoline slicer). Arrange beet slices on a cooling rack over a baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes. Turn oven off and leave beet chips inside to cool completely, about 1 hour. Enjoy!
