I have been reading more vegan cookbooks, and there were a few new dishes that I wanted to try out. At least two of them were snacks. Snacks are a little hard once you quit eating processed foods, and to be honest, our house eats an insane amount of raisins. (Seriously – we can’t keep them in the house no matter how many I buy.) So, in the interest of eating something new, we decided to try out the solar cooker with some zucchini chips. According to the book (Thrive) they are a tasty snack made entirely from cut zucchini. Perfect! (They are on sale, at least….)
2 cut zucchini
I laid the zucchini strips on a parchment paper lined tray and sprinkled them with the seasonings. The recipe called for cooking them for 30 minutes, but I had mine out there for an hour. My oven was sitting at about 300 degrees.
And… they were mushy. I suspect this is supposed to be a high temperature recipe, and it just didn’t translate well at lower temperatures. They zucchini were edible, but not particularly tasty. I’m a bit bummed, to be honest.
