  1. Preheat oven to 225 degrees
  2. The thinner your zucchini slices are, the better these will be. Lay the zucchini out on sheets of paper towel and lightly salt them. Let them sit for about 10 minutes so the salt can draw out some of the moisture.
  3. Dab the slices with paper towel to remove excess moisture.
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and lay the zucchini slices out evenly on the sheet. Depending how many zucchini slices you have, you might have to use two sheets.
  5. Add your favorite spices to the top of the zucchini, but don’t put too much. The zucchini will shrink while cooking.
  6. Bake for 2 hours. Check regularly to ensure they get to your desired level of crispness.
  7. Remove from oven and let cool.
  8. Enjoy!
