Dehydrator Garlic Mustard Zucchini Chips
My hubby, son, and I travel a lot. We have family scattered all over the east coast, so we’re frequently driving to see them. Also, instead of taking one big vacation every year or two, we typically take one or two mini road trip vacations per year. Some of our favorite spots have been Virginia Beach and Pigeon Forge.
A few weeks ago we traveled up to New Jersey to see my mom and grandma. My brother and sister were also there visiting at the same time as us, so we were able to spend a good amount of time with them. Although it was really cold while we were there (0 degrees), it was still a great winter road trip because we were able to spend some quality time with family.
One thing that’s difficult for me on road trips is food because of my son and my allergies. Over the past year I’ve been able to get a pretty decent system down to cover both meals and snacks. I got a dehydrator for Christmas, so my new favorite snack to bring in the car with us is dehydrated zucchini chips. They’re really easy to make, mess-free, and taste delicious! Dip them in some goat cheese to make them more filling!
2 tablespoons olive oil
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon ground mustard
½ teaspoon sea salt
- Slice the zucchini into even “chips”.
- Put all of the ingredients for the chips into a large bowl and stir with your hands to fully coat the zucchini.
- Spread out the zucchini on dehydrator trays, turn the dehydrator – I have a Nesco
– onto 135 degrees (or according to your particular products setting), and dehydrate for about 5 hours (could be longer if your zucchini slices are thicker).
If you love road trips as much as I do, but don’t want to take your own car, make sure you check out Enterprise. We like to use their services when we fly and need to rent a car. They have a “Plus Your Points” promotion that allows you to earn double points toward free rentals in the future. This is a great program for those that fly or road trip a lot. You can earn points by:
-Purchasing a qualifying rental (double points) -Add a GPS unit as part of a qualifying rental (50 bonus points) -Share the qualifying “Plus Your Points” message on Twitter ( 20 bonus points) – this one is super easy to do! -Refer a friend into the “Plus Your Points” promotion, who then rents with Enterprise at least once during the promotion period (300 bonus points)
The “Plus Your Points” promotion runs from December 2, 2013 to March 31, 2014. All points earned will double on qualifying rentals, and the more points you earn the more opportunities you’ll get for free rental days. There aren’t any blackout dates, so you are free to travel and qualify at any point during the promotion period. Plus, any points you earn won’t expire – you have two years to use them! Registering is really easy – just head to the Enterprise Plus Your Points promotion website, then all of your points will be tracked online.
Why rent a car to begin with? Maybe you’re going on a road trip with friends or extended family and you need a larger vehicle. Or maybe you have a truck and want a car that gets better gas mileage. Either way, make some zucchini chips to bring along for the ride :) click here to sign up.
