Hand cut, no oil, pink salt, paprika & pepper crisps - a recipe for your simmering oven


Recipe Name:  Paprika & Pepper Crisps


Meal Type: Snack
Prep Time: 30 Mins

Cook time: 35 Mins

Servings: 1 Portion
Description:  A satisfyingly healthy crunchy alternative to shop bought crisps, made using the residual heat in your simmering oven. Make as a snack or as a garnish for main meals.


  • A few waxy potatoes - I used King Edward, but Maris Piper will be perfect too.
  • A Parsnip
  • A couple of pinches of paprika, seasoning salt (I used Pink Himalayan), and ground black pepper. 
  • Tap water to soak and 1+1/2 tsp of salt.
  • Suggested Cookware


    1. Wash your veg, and towel dry. Do not peel.

    2. Slowly and steadily cut your spuds and parsnips to around 1mm thick slices. Be as accurate as you can, thin is best, but do not discard any slightly thicker ones, they are still as yummy! You can of course use a mandolin, but I hand cut mine. 

    3. Soak your slices, making sure that they are covered for 10 mins or so, in salted water, then drain well. Separate them out and pat dry on a clean t-towel. 

    4. Place in your simmering oven on a pre-heated tray, for 25-35 min. The oven should be running at around 120 ℃, just perfect!

    5. Lay the slices out, I found this quite therapeutic, cook in batches, don't be tempted to overlay them. 

    6. Once crisp, season in a bag or large bowl with the paprika, pepper and salt and chomp away! 

    7. You could also try Onion salt, vinegar in the soaking water, dried herbs....Let us know how you get on!
