Dehydrating Brussels Sprouts and Making Chips
Anyone who has spent time on my blog or Facebook page knows that I love to dehydrate. I try to dehydrate about anything and everything. In fact, I recently even dehydrated ALOE VERA. Recently I was having Brussels sprouts with my dinner and it got me to thinking "can you dehydrate Brussels sprouts" and I decided it was doable. I am so very glad I did try it because these little "chips" turned out really good.
These "chips" turn out crunchy and delicious. They have a real nice and fresh taste to them. Best of all, they are really good for you. Since you dehydrate them and do not cook them, all the nutrients are still present. Anyway, I love these Brussels Sprouts chips and I hope you do too.
These are super easy to make. To begin, cut off the "stems".
Now start peeling off the little "leaves" and pull off as many as you can.
When you have pretty much all the leaves off, place the leaves into a colander and set the "hearts" aside to be used in a future meal.
Run cold water over them to rinse them well. Shake to remove the excess water and lay them out on your dehydrator trays and sprinkle them with sea salt and Parmesan and Romano cheese.
Other flavor combinations include garlic powder and onion powder or even red chili flakes. The best part about dehydrating these is that the bitterness completely disappears and they are much more substantial than kale chips.
Place the dehydrator trays back into your dehydrator and turn it on. It only takes about 2 hours for the Brussels sprouts to turn crispy. Once they are done, remove and try not to eat them all before you can place them into a mason jar. They are great to eat as a snack or throw them into a salad for a yummy crunch.
