Chips and an odd green vegetable (7)


I believe the answer is:


'green vegetable' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'chips and an odd' is the wordplay.
'and' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'odd' indicates an anagram.
'chips' put after 'an' is 'anchips'.
'anchips' with letters rearranged gives 'SPINACH'.

(Other definitions for spinach that I've seen before include "Some greens" , "Blackboard stand" , "food" , "Vegetable leaves" , "Popeye's strength-giver" .)
