Plant based Munchies

A journey towards whole food, plant based, healthy eating….

Vege chips


One of the things that is tricky with young kids is getting veggies into them. Although the adults in this family have been vegetarian for a couple of years now, we have still fed the kids meat. Recently, we have read enough and come into enough awareness that we can see this makes little sense. Given that there is nothing humans gain from meat that can’t be gained from plants – and in fact, there is much to suggest that plant based diets give humans a whole lot LESS health issues – we have drawn a line and said we want this for our kids too. The trick, is training them into it πŸ˜‰


What is hilarious is that our kids would normally baulk at zucchini and sweet potato. But here it is, 1 zuchini and 1 sweet potato whizzed through the food processor blade (took under 10 seconds to cut them all) – and this made 3 trays like this.

I coated them in some oil, salt, pepper, thyme and paprika…


Vege chips here we come! The boys absolutely gutsed them down. One whole sweet potato and one whole zucchini -gone. And then they complained because they wanted more! I heard my youngest say “I don’t want that, it’s cucumber” and my eldest said “No, it’s chips”. So they ate them all πŸ™‚ *sneaky mum laugh*

  1. These are the best chips! *homemade* πŸ™‚

  2. how long do you cook them for and at what temperature?

    • Now that is funny! I do tend to forget finer details πŸ™‚ 180degrees and honeestly just cook them until they are crunchy. Every oven is different so if I gave you a time I would burn them probably. Just keep an eye on them (15 mins?) until you are happy with how they have come up. If your oven doesn’t cook evenly you also might find the outer ones burn whilst the inner ones are still soft. You can stir them around on the tray or just take the cooked ones off and leave the rest in.
