Red beet and blue potato chips with tangy yogurt dipping sauce recipe

Serves 4


  • 1 pound blue potatoes, sliced into thin rounds
  • 4 beets, peeled and sliced into thin rounds
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper, or use a silicone baking sheet.
  2. In a large bowl, toss the potatoes with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, salt and pepper. Spread the potatoes out in a single layer on 1 of the baking sheets. Bake for about 20 minutes, flipping the potatoes over halfway through until crispy and starting to brown around the edges.
  3. In a large bowl, toss the beets with the other 2 tablespoons of olive oil, salt and pepper. Spread the beets out in a single layer on the other baking sheet. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, flipping halfway through until crispy.
  4. In a small dipping bowl, mix together the yogurt, mayonnaise, lemon juice and garlic, and serve with the baked chips.
