Mama Jess Bean Good’s New Best Friend: Baked Zucchini Chips

Posted by on Jul 3, 2012 in blog, recipes

This time of year it is zucchini, zucchini, zucchini! Our gardens and crop shares are overflowing with this vegetable. I don’t know about you but I can only make sautéd zucchini and zucchini bread so many times. I was refreshed by this delicious recipe for baked zucchini chips and it pairs perfectly with Mama Jess Bean Good. I used some golden zucchini in pictures below but I have also made it with standard/green zucchini and it’s equally good! The secret is in the wire rack cooking method…and the sauce of course!
