Vegetable Crisps!

I love snacking between meals and an evening snack is absolutely essential ....else im cranky all the way up until dinner :)

So I got thinking and decided to try something healthy and I was AMAZED by the results .....none of this looks very appetizing.....but it tastes sooooooo goood!

WARNING : both the brinjal and the spinach crisps are addictive ....

Fix yourself a LARGE batch and enjoy guilt-free!! Hurray for  healthy AND finger- licking good food!

Spinach Leaves ...ready to go into the oven

Spinach Crisps

Handful of baby/regular spinach leaves washed and dried well with a kitchen tissue
Salt , pepper , Italian seasoning 
2-3 drops of olive oil

Line your baking tray with parchment paper ...this makes it easier to take out the crisps when done. I dint have any so skipped it!

Place spinach leaves in the tray ....add 2-4 drops of olive oil and toss to cover every leaf somewhat with a little oil.

Dont overdo the oil else leaves will get soggy and not crisp up!

Season to your taste!

Place in oven at 180 degree Celsius for about 8-12 minutes.....this really depends on your oven so after 8 minutes keep an eye on your tray.

And they are ready to eat! :)

Remove from oven and enjoy!!  

Brinjal Crisps

Medium size Brinjal - wash dry and then cut into rounds
Salt, pepper , Italian seasoning
2-5 drops of olive oil
Parmesan cheese grated to make it sinful
Garlic - 2-3 cloves cut or made into a paste

In a baking tray mix everything together apart from the cheese.
Add that in the last on top.

Leave to bake in an oven at 180 deg. Celsius for about 15 odd minutes or more till brinjal is crisp n wilted....really depends on your oven keep an eye on your tray after 10 minutes !

Remove from oven and enjoy right away

Perfect accompaniment /started to an Italian home cooked meal or just as a snack by itself!


  1. Good to see u back. Any ideas on how to make these crisps in a regular microwave. I don't have an oven.

  2. A perfect guilt free snack for me!
