28 Jun Zero Waste Potato Peel Crisps Recipe

Cut down on your food waste and put your potato peelings to good use by making these easy and delicious homemade crisps from an ingredient that usually goes to waste.

Prep Time: 5 minutes 

Cooking Time: 30 minutes

Equipment: Peeler, baking tray, measuring spoons, oven

Ingredients - Makes 2 Servings

Peelings from 5 large potatoes

½ tsp Oregano

½ tsp Smoked paprika

½ tbsp Olive oil

Salt & pepper


Pre-heat an oven to 180oc

Take your leftover potato peelings and give them a good wash in cold water

Pat dry with a tea towel

Place them on a baking tray in a single layer (don’t pack them too tightly) and coat them with the remaining ingredients

Bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until golden and crisp


This will work with any potatoes, just make sure you use a peeler when peeling the potatoes rather than a knife. As typically when you use a knife the peelings end up being too thick.
