Spiced Potato Skin Crispy Chips
A naturally SOS free treat
Potato skin crisps are great for when you have peeled potatoes for another dish, like mashed potatoes or potato leek soup.
Lots of flavor and fiber come from the skins, so its a wonderful way of saving the peels. Oil-free and salt-free spiced potato skin crispy chips are a perfect companion to mashed potatoes, see the recipe for the Golden Mashed Potato dish. They also make a nice addition to an appetizer tray with dips or garnish on a salad. And there is no salt, no oil and of course, no sugar, making them a naturally SOS free crispy treat for everyone to enjoy.
To give the potato crispy chips a bright and spicy flavor, I toss them with a white vinegar, like a rice vinegar or lime juice and spices then let them rest for about 15 minutes before baking them in the oven. This rest time makes it so the spices infuse flavor and don’t over cook or burn during the bake time. You can use the dried spices listed below or any selection of dried spices you like. The oil-free potato skin crispy chips will stay crispy and will be good for several a few days stored in the refrigerator.
