Organic Guacamole with Zucchini Chips Recipe
Key Notes: Paleo, whole30, keto, gluten-free, low carb
If you love guacamole but still crave the crunch, this organic guac and chip recipe is for you!
Zucchinis crisp up in the oven into lovely chips that you can use to dip into the creamy avocado goodness.
Loaded with healthy fats and oils, it’ll be gone before you know it.
You can optionally add jalapeno or roasted poblano peppers for a spicy kick.
Make sure you use a mandolin to slice the zucchini chips so they all crisp up in the oven evenly.
Roasting them in the oven brings out their natural sweetness with a hint of smoke. Alternatively, you can dehydrate them in a food dehydrator.
Using organic vegetables (especially thin skinned ones like zucchini which are usually on the “Dirty Dozen” list) ensure you’re not ingesting harmful pesticides, herbicides, or fungicides.
A single large zucchini can produce a lot of chips, so you can store the rest in an air-tight container in the fridge.
If they happen to soften, you can easily crisp them up in toaster oven again.
If you need to put away extra guac, make sure you seal with plastic wrap flush against the dip to prevent it from browning.
