Arielle Haspel is here to show you how to make a delicious and healthy snack that can replace those greasy potato chips: Brussels sprout chips! They are super easy to make and really quick too. Looking for a healthy snack for NFL Sunday's? This is the perfect healthy tailgate food!
In the video, Arielle makes chips from 16 Brussels sprouts. The first step is to lightly cut the stem off of the Brussels sprout and peel the leaves off until you can't peel any more off. Once you're at this point, to get as many leaves as possible, simply cut a little bit of it and you'll be able to peel off a few more leaves until you're finally left with the sprout, which you can actually save to roast and eat them later as well.
Once your Brussels sprouts are all peeled into leaves you can place them onto a tray with parchment paper on it (tin foil works too!). Then you're going to drizzle on 2 tablespoons of coconut oil, which is high heat oil so you're still going to get all the benefits from the oil even when you cook it. You're going to want to make sure all of the coconut oil is spread throughout all the leaves and then you can sprinkle a little sea salt on top.
Now you're ready to get them into the oven so they can start cooking. Arielle recommends to stand by the oven while they cook because they crisp up really fast and you don't want them to burn! Keep them in there until they are crispy and brown around the edges. And that's it! You can enjoy these Brussels sprout chips as a perfect guilt free snack.
