Step 1: All You Need Is

A Pumpkin( fleshy ones with more dry content preferred, like Hokkaido, Buttersquash, Hubbard)

seasoning: salt.



veg- mandolin


parchment paper

microwave safe dish

Step 2: Let's Begin

Peel the pumpkin.

Cut into thin slices using a vegetable mandolin, if no mandolin available slice as thin as you can with a sharp knife.

Place the cut slices on an absorbent kitchen paper to suck out moisture, for a minute or 2.

Take a microwave-safe dish, place a piece of parchment paper on it.

Arrange the cut slices on the plate- not overlapping each other.

Sprinkle seasoning.

Step 3: Microwave

Microwave the plate at a high for 1.50 min. Flip the slices and rearrange ( center ones outside and vice versa) since heart is concentrated in the center..

Microwave for another minute.

Remove the plate and wait for it to cool.

Once cool they should turn crisp.

(in case you have cut them a little thicker it will take a little longer. in that case microwave for another minute or half till crisp.)

    I don't have a dehydrator either, so I may try your microwave chips.

    I LOVE this idea but I would definitely put them in a food dehydrator which preserves the vitamin/ mineral content. The microwave tends to render most foods nearly worthless nutritionally. Yum, and good luck!

    hmm...I do not have a dehydrator, moreover it will take ages in that. but yes you are right about the nutritional values perhaps. thanks for stopping by to comment.
