I love potato chips, French fries, mashed potatoes … I have a potato addiction. I love eating them and can eat a ton before I realized that I made myself sick.

But I have been trying to be a good vegan and stick to a diet in order to lose weight. So no more chip bags, gone in a night.

This is why I LOVE Susan from Fat Free Vegan and her amazing microwave potato chip recipe.

I am not going to post the recipe here, since I really didn’t modify it, so go to her blog for the recipe.

The changes I made include using purple potatoes and I ran out of parchment paper, so I greased the glass dish with a little vegetable shortening. It worked out fine and only lost a few chips, mostly the very thin sliced ones. I tried the salt and vinegar variety, and whereas it didn’t have a strong taste, it was good.

If you have a craving for chips, this is a great recipe to try for a fraction of the fat calories.

Munch away!

Munchie Monday: Zucchini roll-ups

I was wishing for zucchini again and lo and behold, I come back from a Labor Day vacation and I have three zucchini!

I know summer is kind of over, but I still want fresh produce and refreshing dishes to eat.

The Fitchen made zucchini pesto roll-ups, inspiring me to make similar ones with hummus. I got a 10-ounce Sabra classic hummus container for cheap last week and used that. I also have a bounty of orange cherry tomatoes aching to be used.

I didn’t roll it as neatly as The Kitchen recipe, but it was still delicious. I ate a few for lunch today.

All you really need for this recipe is a filler, cherry tomatoes, zucchini and toothpicks. I used my mandolin slicer to  make the slices, placing it on the medium setting. That worked out the best.

Enjoy the rest of the garden bounty with this recipe by The Fitchen!
