85 g bag of Mikso Veggie / Vegetable chips with parsnip, beetroot and orange sweet potato with black pepper (chips / patatas de chirivía, boniato naranja y remolacha con pimienta negra), from the town of Riudellots de la Selva, Girona, Catalonia.
Simple, natural, Mediterranean. Hand-cooked vegetable chips.
The parsnip is white, sweet, with an aniseed point and very original spice. Mikso adds in their chips a pinch of black pepper to highlight the aroma that characterizes it. It is a vegetable rich in fiber and potassium. As the Latin name Pastinaca sativa indicates, it is a member of the carrot family.
The beetroot is a vegetable that gives natural sweetness and intense red colour to chips. It is a tuber of Mediterranean origin that has been cultivated here since the Middle Ages. It is rich in vitamin B and antioxidants, very beneficial for health.
The orange sweet potato is an ancient root with a high content of vitamin A. In Girona it is cultivated during the hot months and it is tradition to eat them in autumn. Ipomoea batata is its Latin name but at a colloquial level it is also called batata or camote, depending on the region of the world.
