Radish Chip Recipe

Recipe http://www.floridacoastalcooking.com/2011/01/csa-my-week-6-and-daikon-radish-chips.html

1 Daikon radish, sliced thinly (a mandolin will yield the best results)
Olive oil spray
Coarse sea salt, fresh ground pepper, garlic powder, to taste
Directions
1. Preheat broiler.  Spray a baking sheet with olive oil and lay the radish slices down.  Spray the tops with olive oil.  Broil for 5-8 minutes until just beginning to brown.  Flip and broil second side 5-8 minutes.  Season with salt, pepper and garlic powder.
***Note:  Watch the radish closely under the broiler to ensure they do not over brown.  Cooking times will vary with thickness of radish slices and proximity to heating elements.
