ZUCCHINI SPICY OVEN CHIPS WITH AMARANTH POPPING
These crunchy breaded, oven-fried zucchini chips taste like they’re fried yet baked and amazingly tasty. These chips make a healthy substitute for French fries or potato chips.
To make them even more healthy, we added to the bread mixture amaranth popping - our super food - which we wrote in detail in our blog. It works great in this recipe because of it's cunchy texture.
To make the subtle zucchini flavour come alive, add red, sweet paprika powde and chilli powder to make a great twist and add colour to the dish. Feel free to experiment with different spices.
