Zucchini Chips with Garlic Lemon Aioli

Is anyone else surprised by how versatile zucchini is? You can throw it on the grill for a quick side dish, spiralize it into noodles, bake it into brownies, or in this case, make chips!

This recipe might’ve been easier if I had a mandolin but instead I used the slicing side of a standing cheese grater and it worked great. I think the size of the “chips” would’ve been more consistent with the mandolin but mine turned out totally fine! It does take some time to bake these in the oven so be sure to keep that in mind!

Ingredients

  • 2 medium-sized zucchini

  2. Cut off ends of zucchini and slice zucchini into even, thin discs (using a mandolin or slicing side of standing cheese grater)
  3. Place slices between paper towel sheets and dab away excess moisture
  4. Line baking sheets with parchment paper and arrange zucchini slices so they are close but do not overlap (they will shrink in the oven)
