This might sound like a weird title for a post, but you will get it when/if you read on.
Not sure what my inspiration was, but whilst staring into space at work I decided I wanted to try and make my own crisps. I figured if it was made with vegetables then I could eat an unlimited amount without feeling guilty.
So I ran to the empty shopping mall, empty because it is Ramadan and everything (but the supermarket) is pretty much closed. Sadly Carrefour did not have a Mandolin so found myself in Homecentre paying £16 for one 🙁
After acquiring the £16 Mandolin and a £2 zucchini/courgette, it was time to start. Note it was already cheaper to just buy a packet of crisps.
I sliced the zucchini on level 2 thinness and dried them between paper towels, as mentioned by an online recipe.
I seasoned them with oil, salt and pepper at which point they started to sweat profusely. Perhaps this should have rang alarm bells but nooo, this is a simple recipe I think to myself.
I placed them one by one in a baking tray lined with baking paper and 2hrs later they bonded with the baking paper and ….well.. it was moment.
So £18 and 2hrs later, I had no crisps and realised that baking paper really isn’t as non-stick as I originally thought. On the plus side I later learned that I should have lined the baking paper with parchment paper. Who knew!
Hopefully I will get it right the next time 🙂 and I can at least hang it on the wall and call it art.
