The tomato is a fruit and a vegetable, and now with this dish, it’s also a chip. Tomato chips are a healthy and interesting take on the traditional potato chip. They have the interesting flavorings of the tomato, which admittedly are not as addictive as the salt-infused carb load of traditional chips, but are nevertheless delicious. Serve these chips as a snack or as a pre-meal appetizer and your friends and family will be amazed at your cooking ingenuity.
We already know tomato chips are delicious, and I’m sure we at least suspect that they are healthy. There’s no longer a reason to speculate; eating tomatoes are healthy for you and here’s why.

Tomatoes’ vitamin C content also help the body to fight and recover from illness.
