Ok, so as mentioned I get beetroots aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, but this recipe could just be the mind changer! Let me know how you get on..

You’ll need

– 1 large beetroot / 2 medium beetroots

– 1 tbsp of coconut oil

– 1 to 2 tsps of chilli flakes

– 1 tsp of oregano

– Salt & pepper


1. Preheat oven to 180c

2. Half the beetroot and slice. Try to make the slices as thin as possible, this will add to them having a more chip consistency.

3. Spread chips evenly on baking tray. Take tbsp of coconut oil and coat the chips. Be sure to rub the oil in to each chip using your fingers for an even spread, (this will make difference!).

4. Sprinkle over oregano, then chilli flakes. I like to be pretty liberal with the chilli, but modify to your own taste of how hot you like.

5. Finish off by sprinkling salt & pepper. Place in the oven and check at 8 minutes. Give a stir round if some aren’t cooking as well. Heat for another 8 – 12 minutes depending on how well done you like.

6. Serve & enjoy!
