CARROT CHIPS

2 large carrots (at least 1 inch in diameter), peeled
1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper

INSTRUCTIONS

Heat the oven to 350°F and arrange the racks to divide the oven into thirds. Holding the stem end, shave the carrots lengthwise into thin strips using a Y-shaped vegetable peeler.

Place the carrot strips in a medium bowl, add the oil, salt, and pepper to taste and toss with your hands until thoroughly coated.

Place the strips in a single layer on 2 baking sheets—the strips can be touching but should not overlap. (Discard or save any remaining carrot slices for another use.) Bake for 6 minutes, then rotate the pans between the racks.

Bake until the edges of the chips are just starting to turn golden brown, about 6 to 8 minutes more. Place the baking sheets on wire racks and let the chips cool until crisp, about 3 minutes. Using your hands, carefully transfer the chips to a serving dish and serve with ranch dressing, if desired.

Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
