Ingredients

  • 1 large zucchini
  • ½ tsp. Garlic salt
  • ¼ tsp. Pepper
  • ½ tsp. Italian seasoning
  • ½ tsp. Cayenne or paprika
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. parmesan (optional) for garnish

Instructions

  • Using a sharp knife, snip off the end off zucchini. Leave the skin on.
  • Now using a mandolin slice zucchini into very thin slices or chips. In case you don’t have a mandolin, use your knife to achieve similar-sized zucchini slices.
  • Assemble olive oil in a bowl. Assemble various spices and salt in a bowl.

Air frying Instructions:

  • Preheat air fryer at 160C or 320F for 5 minutes.
  • Lay zucchini chips in air fryer without much overlapping. One layer is preferred.
  • Air fry for about 8-10 minutes at 320 F.
  • You will notice that some chips will start browning on the edges and crisping up. Remove them. Check every minute and remove more till all are done.
  • You may need to do more than one batch. Your crispy delicious zucchini chips are done. Enjoy them with your favourite dip.
  • You can garnish with some grated parmesan if you like yours cheesy. I prefer to have as is.

Notes

1. Serving Suggestions: You can serve them with ranch dip or Chipotle mayo.
2. For seasoning you may mix it up by using ranch seasoning, Cajun seasoning, Fajita seasoning or any other ready spice mix of choice.
3. You could also air fry zucchini chips by adding just oil to it and air frying. Then add the seasoning while serving.
4. I prefer to add spices while air frying so that they adhere better.
5. The best tip is to cut zucchini slices really thin. A mandolin does a good job of cutting even, thin slices.
If you don’t have a mandolin, use your Chef’s Knife and slowly slice even slices
6. Then make sure that you dry them really well with paper towel. This is because they contain a lot of water. If they are very soggy when you place them for air frying, they will take very long to crisp up or may not crisp up at all.
7. Coat with spices and oil and immediately put them in the air fryer. This is to prevent them from releasing water when they are sitting with spices on them.
8. Put them in one layer in air fryer or minimise overlap as much as possible.
9. Keep opening the basket once every few minutes and remove the chips that look browned on the edges and have crisped up to allow the others to cook optimally and none to get burned.
10. You will need to do these in batches, but they get done quickly.
