We all love snacks. It doesn’t matter whether you prefer sweet or salty, the staples are always the same. As you walk up and down the grocery aisles, you’ll see numerous products to choose from. There are cookies, chips, dips, and the list goes on and on and on… I think you get the idea! Now, pick up one of those bags of chips and there is a good chance you’ll see MSG on the ingredient label. For a large number of people, this can cause migraines. Unfortunately, MSG is an ingredient that is found in a large number of products all over the grocery store aisles, and avoiding it is definitely easier said than done. It is added to foods such as potato chips, frozen dinners, sauces and gravies. Besides reading every ingredient label in the store, you can also simply make some of your own foods at home to ensure there is no extra “junk” added in the ingredients (like MSG).  Here is a great DIY “Potato” Chip recipe that has all the flavor of a store bought snack without any added MSG! Try it out next time you’re in the mood for something crunchy, salty and down-right delicious

 

Homemade Taro Chips

Ingredients

1 lb taro, peeled

Kosher (or Hawaiian) salt, to taste

Olive oil, for brushing

 

Instructions

  1. If you're using a mandolin, put on the lowest setting 1 or 2 and slice the taro lengthwise.
  2. Don't rush this step and watch your fingers as you slice. For parts that are too small to slice with a mandolin, use a sharp knife.
  3. Place slices on parchment paper lined baking sheets and brush each slice lightly with olive oil.
  4. Bake in 400 degree Fahrenheit oven for 20 minutes until edges are crisp. Season with extra salt if desired.
