Crispy Baked Zucchini Chips with Turmeric Spiced Ketchup

I cannot believe it has been over year since I launched The Spicy Olive website. It has been an incredible journey not only on the farm but all the wonderful and creative talent I have had the opportunity to connect with. I am very grateful and thankful for all of your love and support. In saying that, I am excited to announce an new initiative on The Spicy Olive website. There have been many bloggers, foodies and chef's who inspired me and what better way to get to know them, then, spend time doing what we love.  My initiative is not only to collaborate, create and share delicious simple recipes with them, but to support and introduce the talent I have had the honour to meet with all of you. I would like to introduce to you Nic (Nicole) and Nat (Natalia) The Sneaky Mommies  , I had the opportunity to first meet Nic and Nat when they visited the farm to participate in a Food Photography class. It was an immediate connection, I fell in love with their warm, kind and loving nature and their passion for creating healthy nutritious meals for their families using fresh local ingredients. What's so sneaky about these beautiful mommies, they share tested and perfected recipes that take the stress out of preparing healthy meals and snacks that your family will devour. Beets in cupcakes, lots of health veggies in pasta Bolognese and quinoa, carrots, zucchini and spinach in meatballs.......whaaaat! Having school age girls, I definitely need the help sneaking in healthy ingredients in their favourite meals. Since they were my inspiration for this initiative, I was thrilled to invite them into my kitchen to create this healthy farm-to-table recipe of Crispy Baked Zucchini Chips with Turmeric Spiced Ketchup to share with all of you.
