I’ll admit it. Potato chips are my weakness. When I’m in the mood for a treat, I usually go for the salty snack. I guess then, it’s no surprise that I’m a fan of Terra Chips Original flavor.
Terra® Chips aren’t your normal potato chip. In fact, they’re not even made from yellow potatoes and they’re not nearly as salty as your standard chip (in a good way, not in the “these are missing something” kind of way). The original Terra Chips are made of root vegetables – sweet potato, parsnip, batata, taro and yucca – which gives them a unique taste and a pretty cool look and color (when I poured the chips into a bowl, I thought they looked like potpourri!). Best of all, they’re naturally gluten-free and each 1-ounce serving equals a half serving of vegetables.
Even though these are “chips,” they actually reminded me more of plantain chips rather than a potato chip. They still have a crunch, but it’s more subtle and the middle of the chips is ever-so-slightly chewy. Terra® Chips are still pretty sturdy, so they’ll make a great companion to your favorite gluten-free dip. If flavored chips are more your style, check out the tons of varieties offered, like the Sea Salt Chips, Harvest Sweet Onion and Zesty Tomato.
Terra® Chips even leave a lot of room for creativity. You don’t have to eat these by themselves! The company has recipes on their website using them in everything from appetizers to gluten-free bread crumb alternatives. I know I’d love to try out their recipe for Terra Crusted Salmon with Steamed Scallion-Lemon Rice.
