RECIPE

Vegetable Chips

Tom Colicchio

Craft, NYC

A variety of root vegetables are thinly sliced and briefly fried for an addictive but healthy snack.

Yield: 8 to 10 servings

Method:

Heat the oil in a large Dutch oven or deep fryer until it reaches 375ºF on a deep-fry thermometer.
    
Working in batches, add the vegetables to the oil, one at a time (cooking beets last as they will color the oil) until crispy, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.

Add the rosemary to the oil and cook until crisp, about 1 minute. Transfer to a small bowl and add the salt; toss to combine. Sprinkle the vegetables with seasoned salt and serve immediately.
