3.1 stars from 77 ratings of Zucchini Chips

Healthier snacks result in a healthier and thinner body. We can reduce or even eliminate potato chips and the like from our diet by making better choices. Most homemade chips end up being much less expensive and add vitamins and nutrients that commercial snacks do not offer.

A current rage is kale chips. I have tried them, and tried them, and tried them. I just cannot like them no matter how they are seasoned. One website even had a recipe for massaged kale chips. Excuse me? If I cannot get a massage, a vegetable is certainly not getting one from me!

But I have found that other vegetables make delicious chips and take only minutes to prepare. One is zucchini. Summer squash can be used in the same manner. I added one to the dehydrator as an example. So move over, kale! Zucchini is the new chip king.

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 12 hours
Ready in: 12 hours 15 min
Yields: 12 Servings of 1/2 cup each

Ingredients

  • 4-6 Zucchini, the larger, the better
  • 1 Tbl Olive Oil
  • 1 Tsp Vinegar, Cider or Balsamic
  • Salt, to taste
  1. Wash zucchini and slice about 1/4 inch thick. A mandolin works great to maintain uniform thickness. (Bigger ones work better because they shrink so much.) Place in large bowl.
  2. Pour in olive oil, mix with hands to coat every slice of zucchini. Using a bag to shake it does not work as well.
  3. Pour in vinegar and mix in well using hands.
  4. Place zucchini slices on dehydrator try, just barely touching. Sprinkle with salt.
  5. Dehydrate until firm and crisp. Timing will vary with each batch due to moisture in the air and the individual dehydrator used. I usually leave mine overnight and they are done in the morning.

Options

Sprinkle chips with:

  • Cooking spray instead of oil
  • Onion or garlic powder
  • Red Pepper
  • Ranch Dressing (out of the package that makes dip
  • Celery salt
  • Your favorite seasoning

I used balsamic vinegar this time. It makes the chips darker but gives a richer and sweeter flavor to the chips. Also, I usually use cooking spray to add a touch of oil which reduces calories. Sometimes we need to splurge though and the spoonful of oil was good for the entire batch.

      I used the zucchini that had grown to large to have much flavor. So I sliced them as thin as possible with my large knife. Then added seasonings such as salt and garlic powder...even chili seasoning. They were delicious.

      Hi Moon Daisy. I actually wrote a modern day fairy tale about that. It is called How Princess Hyphenbird Got Her Name. I will see if it is still published here on HubPages. How did the chips turn out?

      Hello Moon Daisy. I love your name. In an over that is 250 F, it should take about an hour. Check every 15 minutes. For the first 15, minutes leave the door cracked so steam and moisture can escape. These are SO good. You will be hooked. We are! Thanks for stopping to comment.

      Hi Hyphenbird, I've just revisited this page after a long time, so apologies that I didn't see your reply before.

      I have some zucchinis in my fridge, (we call them courgettes), so I'm going to try it out! You say that you can also make them in a low-temperature oven. Could you please give me an idea of how long they might take to cook like this?

      Thanks. :)

      I had a dehydrator many years ago that I purchased in a garage sale and rarely used it so got rid of it. Now I wish I had it back! May have to look around and see if I cannot get one as you suggested in a thrift shop or may check Amazon for their pricing. This looks like such a great idea! Going to pin this to my Vegetables and veggie dishes board so that it is bookmarked. Thanks!

      When I was a kid my parents had a rather large vegetable garden in the backyard. Besides other veggies, they grew quite a bit of zucchini. I remember my mom would cut them into very thin slices them very and let them dry. She would use them in salads or stir fried with olive oil and garlic. They were sooooo delicious! Thanks for sharing.

      I add onion or garlic powder, sometimes both. They are good sprinkled with any dried herbs. I have never purchased pre-made ones. I know they would be good but are too expensive for me. I can make them at home for a fraction of the cost. Experiment until you find that perfect flavor you love.

      Did you add any seasoning when you dehydrated the vegetables? I want my green beans to taste like the ones they sell at "The Fresh Market". I plan to blanch them, and spray olive oil on them and then Tony's seasoning? Any thoughts or other suggestions?

      Hi sgbrown. These are my very favorite snack food. It is easy to make and so delicious. I may have to make some this winter with store bought squash but it won't be the same as bringing in a big armful of garden squash will it? Thanks for pinning the recipe.

      PegCole17, you must get that dehydrator. I actually invented this salt and vinegar recipe although zucchini chips are probably all over the web. However you make them just be sure to sprinkle on a bit of salt otherwise they are too bland for some people. I love them any way at all. We also are eating more healthy foods and taking care of our bodies better. After eating dehydrated veggies as a snack I do not care for commercial chips or snacks at all. Thanks for the visit.

      This is an omen for sure because I just saw an ad for a food dehydrator at my favorite new food market. What great timing. Our minds must be on the same channel, Ms. Hypenbird. Thank you for the wonderful and delicious sounding recipe for these dehydrated zucchini chips! We are trying to eat better snacks these days. Peg

      Hi Turtlewoman. The salt and balsamic vinegar zucchini chips are now one of my all time favorite foods. I crave them. I know you will too. Perhaps I should make salt and vinegar kale chips and see if I like them then. I will do that and get back to you soon. Thanks so much for your fun visit.

      This looks like something worth trying. There is always more squash than we can eat, and even the neighbors are turning them away. So, this is something that I can try (and not mess up). Check list. Squash- yes, dehydrator, yes- we are good to go. Thanks.

      tirelesstraveler, thank you for letting me know you made these. They really are addictive. It is hard for me not to grab some as they dry also. We have eaten what I made the other day so I put more on last night. At least they are low calorie and healthful, not like regular snacks. We can eat all we want! Thanks again. You made my day.

      Alastar, try them and I promise you will also be addicted to these great chips. The olive oil adds health benefits too. You are right about time. Dehydrating takes a very longtime. It is not for the person without patience. But I am training my followers and myself to wait like a monk! Thanks for coming by.

      Hi Movie Master. They are addictive, I know that!

      Frank, you just didn't leave them long enough. Dehydrating food is a lesson in patience for me. Leave them a couple more hours and they will crisp up. We like them crispy. Chewy doesn't satisfy me when I want a chip. Patience young Jedi.....

      Moon Daisy, what a lovely name you have. A dehydrator has trays with many vents. It operates at a very low heat and removes moisture from foods. Then they can be stored for years when properly packaged. Certain ones can be eaten dry like these chips or re-hydrated with water. A person can make these in a regular oven at a low temp of about 150 degrees (F). I hope you try these. they are fantastic. Thanks for dropping by.

      livelonger, they are chewy if you take them out as soon as they are dehydrated. Allow them to stay a few extra hours for crunch. We love crunch and allow them to crisp up. Yum. Thanks so much. HB

      RTalloni, any time is a good time. laugh Remember though, these take about 12 hours to dry so the dedicated snacker must plan ahead. Thanks so much. It is nice to see you.

      Lynn S. Murphy, you are right. Store bought dried foods are expensive and often has chemical preservatives. These are natural and very inexpensive. I hope you try them. They are so easy to make. Thanks for stopping by.

      Just Ask Susan, yes you need one. Check out the local thrift stores for a good price on one. I am busy dehydrating all kinds of food and storing it properly. If the power is out, we can just add water and eat like kings. That is what we feel like when we eat these zucchini chips. They really are delicious.

      ThisisShe (love the name), I really have tried to eat kale chips. So has my little boy but we just cannot like them. But these zucchini chips are amazing. Look around thrift stores for a dehydrator. I found mine for only one dollar at a resale store that was going out of business. I see them at thrift stores for less than $10 often. It is so nice to meet you. I will go over and check out your profile.

      Thanks for this great idea. I'm addicted to the dried veggetables at my local market. I don't know why I never thought of making my own. I already have a dehydrator. I will try some today!

      Interesting, I will have to give this a try. Do they end up crunchy or a bit chewy?

      This is interesting. I like zucchini and squash and this is a great alternative especially to store bought which has tons of other not-so-good-stuff in them.

      Okay okay I have to get a dehydrator now. This is the second one of your recipes that I know I'd love.

      These look so yummy. I am a huge fan of kale chips and any potato alternative, especially for my DD, whom I do not allow to eat white potatoes. I do not have a dehydrator, but you are certainly tempting me to get one!
