You are going to like these light and crispy raw zucchini chips. You will need a dehydrator, a mandolin slicer, zucchini, some flavorings, and you are good to go! I happened to have some dill and chives left over from my raw celery soup recipe, but you can use whatever herbs and spices you prefer.

Raw Zucchini Chips

2 medium sized zucchini
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast (optional not raw)
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons chopped fresh dill
2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives
1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon sea salt (I like less salt, my husband likes more)
1/8 teaspoon cracked black pepper or to taste

Slice the zucchini with a mandolin slicer (about 3mm thick). I like the Kyocera Adjustable Mandolin Slicer. (Just be sure to use your handguard, so you don’t accidentally cut yourself.) Add the zucchini slices to a large bowl and add the rest of the ingredients except for the nutritional yeast. Mix gently to make sure all the zucchini slices are covered with the marinade.

Let the raw zucchini slices marinate for at least 3 hours in the fridge to soak up the flavorings. Then lay the zucchini slices on your dehydrator trays and sprinkle each chip with sea salt, cracked black pepper, and nutritional yeast. Dehydrate for 1 hour at 145 degrees and then turn down your dehydrator to 115 degrees and continue to dehydrate until the chips are cripy, flipping them over half way through. It should take more than 12 hours to achieve crispiness.

Mine took about 16 hours, but granted I live in a very humid environment, so it might take less time for you. This recipe is for a full 4 tray (11 by 11 tray size) excalibur dehydrator, but feel free to double it if you have a bigger dehydrator. Store them in an airtight container and eat them soon, or they will get soggy. You can always re-crisp them in the dehydrator again before serving.
