Zucchini Chips Dehydrated
Have you tried them already? They are out of this world. So much, that they are gone in exactly 3 minutes in our house.
Have you ever tried a dehydrator?
My first experience was when we lived in Qatar and certain vegetables were available only few weeks a year. You will be surprised as example cherry tomatoes. They were in the grocery shops only once a while and if I or any of my friends saw them, we all started whatsupping each other, running to the shops and buying the whole lot.
The same applied to vegetable markets. The freshest vegetables you got, was directed at those markets, but you were only able to buy a whole box. So if you wanted broccoli, for instance, you had to buy a whole box (20pc). The best was to go always with a friend and split the boxes, but you still ended up with so many vegetables that you were not able to consume in a few days. And just in case you have lots of them, try also our Baked Low Carb zucchini Recipe for a change.
Guess what has happened?
At this time I was reading a lot about how best to store the veggies. So many people have suggested investing in a Dehydrator. So there I went and purchased one. Then for the next few months, I was dehydrating everything I could think of. The machine was going on full blast day and night.
Do you know the difference?
Difference between drying in the oven and dehydrator is, that dehydrator dries everything to a maximum of 70 Celsius throughout few hours. Sometimes 8-12 hours depending on the type of food you want to dehydrate. In this way, it is claimed, that vegetables or fruits or whatever you are dehydrating, keep most of their vitamins. Once dried, you can keep the veggies for a long time.
Do we like Zucchini?
I have tried zucchini in all forms for Sophie, but unfortunately, she is refusing them almost completely. The only way she eats them is mixed in our burgers or made as chips. So I do chips a lot in the oven. There I have to watch quite a bit so I do not burn them. To dry them in a dehydrator takes a bit longer, but I can just switch the dehydrator on and leave the house not having to worry about something to get burned. Plus the advantage of keeping more vitamins inside is just a plus.
Once I make them, they are gone in seconds. Mere seconds. Exactly like those I made for pictures. It took 8 hours to dehydrate them and once I started getting my photo preps ready, Sophie was already standing next to me, pinching one by one.
I have begged her to wait until I make at least some pictures for this post and once I was done, all the chips were gone in just a few minutes. I swear, I have not even cleaned the dishes and it was all gone. All. Do your kids love them the way mine does? Let me know in the comments below.
And just because I could not choose the best picture to post, I am attaching all of them. Do let me know if you like one in particular.

- 2 Tablespoons of sesame seeds
- 1/2 Teaspoon of salt

- Gently mix all together and place it onto the dehydrator plates.
- Switch the dehydrator onto the highest ( in my case it is 70 C or 158 Fahrenheit)
- Switch the plates every 2 hours to get the drying process evenly.
- Once done store it in the airtight container or enjoy it in 2 minutes as we did ( or one person in our family did)
- Bon appetite
