Turmeric Dip with Beet Chips

This healthy dip and chips make a great swap to those high-calorie, high-fat alternatives. It's perfect for entertaining or as a healthy snack to keep on hand for those times when you want a little nibble.

Ingredients

Beet Chips

  • 3 medium beets
  • 1-1/2 tsp olive oil

Turmeric Dip

  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt, whole milk
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh chives
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1-1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1-1/2 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp Kosher salt
  • pinch cayenne powder

Instructions

Preheat Oven to 350° F. Place racks in the upper and lower third of the oven.

  1. Peel the beets, then use a mandoline to slice the beets about 1/16" thick. Place the sliced beets in a large bowl and add the olive oil; toss gently to coat.

  2. Arrange the beets in a single layer on 2 rimmed baking sheets. Cover each baking sheet with another baking sheet. Place the covered pans in the oven and bake until the beet slices begin to dry out on the edges; this will take about 20 minutes. Uncover and rotate the pans. Bake an additional 10 to 20 minutes; remove the chips when the color gets lighter. Place the chips on a wire rack. Don't worry, they'll crisp up as they cool.

Make the Turmeric Dip

  1. In a medium size bowl, thoroughly combine all of the dip ingredients. Chill for at least 1 hour to let the flavors blend together. Garnish with some chopped fresh chives and a sprinkle of cayenne, if desired. Serve with beet chips.
