Introduction: How to Make Crisp No Fat Potato Chips
In this instructable I will show you how you can make crisp potato chips with no fat. Chips are my favorite snack, but store-bought chips contain a lot of additional fat and calories. Therefor I have been looking for a low calorie version without fat you can make yourself.
I found a solution which is very easy. You take a potato. One big potato is enough per person. Clean the outside you do not necessarily have to peel it. Then take a very sharp knife or a mandolin to cut the potato in very thin slices. Put some cold, cold water in a large bowl and put all of the potatoes in. Potatoes contain a lot of starch which makes potato stick. The cold water helps remove the starch so it will not stick.
Leave the potato in the cold water for a couple of minutes. Then put every slice on kitchen paper and dry the slices. Now put some parchment paper on a plate and line up the slices on the plate. Put the plate in the microwave and leave it in for 6 minutes at 900W. Depending on the power of your microwave you have to increase or reduce the length. You do not need any oil or cooking spray this is not crisp no fat potato chips for nothing.
If you want you can add extra flavoring like:salt, garlic powder, paprika powder and chili powder. I flavor the chips after I take them out of the microwave, but you can also do it before, more likely it will stick a little better. Now take a bite and you will be surprised at the crisp, crunch of these potato chips. Best of all you can enjoy guild free potato chips. How cool is that?
