Hi friends and family! The Skinny Louisiana kitchen has been on an amazing ride, and I could not be more excited! Thank you all for your support! This past Tuesday, I presented my ‘Mardi Gras Celebration’ Food Demonstration and Tasting Workshop at Eberhardt Physical Therapy and Wellness in Shreveport, LA.
I wanted to share with the crowd fun Mardi Gras food traditions (of course we had Skinny King Cake and Skinny Bananas Foster), but I was a bit at a loss when it came time to dish a vegetable to the crowd. After lots of thought, I turned to the gorgeous hues of Mardi Gras, green, gold and purple, for my inspiration.
I chose the lovely green bean, shining sweet potato and the gorgeous beet!
Beets seem to be a little…..different. Trust me, I understand. But do note when I was cleaning up after my demo, the entire tray of my Skinny Beet Chips was GONE! Folks loved them and you will too!
Many variations of the beet chip recipe exist, and I decided to keep the recipe super simple. Make these Skinny Beet Chips in place of your chips (if you are craving something crispy or crunchy) or roasted (if you want a side dish for an entree). Offering 3.8 grams of fiber per cup, this dish fits in our Skinny Louisiana diet plan beautifully.
