3 Recipes for Keto-Friendly Veggie Chips (in the Air Fryer)

February 27th, 2020

If you’ve been let down by veggie chips in the past, these recipes warrant giving them another chance. A serving will not only satisfy cravings while keeping things keto, but you’ll also enjoy loads of flavor thanks to foolproof spice mixes like garlic and herb or smoky barbecue. Watch Prep School host Megan Mitchell make three crave-worthy versions featuring zucchini, kale, and eggplant.

BBQ Zucchini Chips

Your favorite BBQ chips can move aside. Featuring versatile zucchini and a keto-friendly seasoning mix, these chips hit the spot while keeping your diet goals on track.

Yield: 4 servings
Active time: 5 minutes
Total time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

Avocado oil spray
1 large zucchini (about 8-inches long), thinly sliced on a mandoline
1 teaspoon Primal Palate Barbecue Rub Seasoning
¼ teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper

Instructions

Liberally spray wire rack to prevent sticking. Place zucchini in a bowl with barbecue seasoning and pepper; toss evenly to coat, pulling apart any rounds that stick together. Working in batches, arrange zucchini on wire rack in a flat, even layer, making sure none overlap. Fry at 300°F for 5 minutes; flip and fry for 6 to 7 minutes more, or until browned and crisp. The zucchini will want to fly around when frying, so rearrange them as needed. Repeat instructions with second batch.


New Bae Kale Chips

Sturdy green kale leaves are the perfect canvas for new bae seasoning featuring cayenne, celery seed, paprika, bay leaves, and other spices.

Yield: 4 servings
Active time: 5 minutes
Total time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

1 bunch dinosaur or lacinato kale
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon. Primal Palate New Bae Seasoning Jar

Instructions

Remove kale leaves from the stems and tear or chop into 3-inch pieces; wash and pat or spin dry. Place kale in a bowl with oil and seasoning; toss to combine. Working in batches, arrange kale onto the wire rack in a flat, even layer, making sure none overlap. Fry at 250°F for 5 to 6 minutes, or until browned and crisp. The leaves will want to fly around while frying; rearrange as needed.


Garlic and Herb Eggplant Chips

It’s hard to go wrong when garlic, herbs, and eggplant are involved. Throw an air fryer into the mix and the result is a perfectly crispy texture that’s pretty addicting—you’ve been warned!

Yield: 4 servings
Active time: 5 minutes
Total time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

Avocado oil spray
2 baby Japanese eggplants, thinly sliced on a mandoline
1 teaspoon Primal Palate Garlic & Herb Seasoning

Instructions

Liberally spray wire rack to prevent sticking. Place eggplant in a bowl with the garlic and herb seasoning; toss evenly to coat, pulling apart any rounds that stick together. Arrange eggplant on wire rack in a flat, even layer, making sure none overlap. Fry at 300°F for 5 minutes; flip and fry for 4 to 5 minutes more, or until browned and crispy. The eggplant will want to fly around when frying, so rearrange them as needed.
