Kale in my opinion, is the queen of the greens packed with vitamins A, C and K and powerful antioxidants. There are so many ways to incorporate kale into your diet such as in green smoothies, juices, salads and stir frys, but my favourite by far would be in the form of Kale Chips! If you’re a fan of potato chips but have been looking for a healthier snack option, then you are going to love these! They are so easy to make and really are the perfect potato chip alternative.
- 1 bunch organic curly Kale
- 2 tbsp EVOO or Coconut Oil
- Sea Salt to season to your liking
Preheat the oven to 150°C and line a tray with baking paper. Wash the kale thoroughly with water and pat dry with a paper towel. Remove the stems from the kale with a sharp knife and chop the leaves into large pieces. Place the leaves in a large bowl and drizzle over the oil. With clean hands, toss the leaves and massage the oil through. Spread out the kale onto the baking sheet and season with the sea salt. Bake for 10 minutes or until crisp. Keep an eye on them as depending on your oven and the size of the chips they can crisp up quite quickly! Take out of the over and allow to cool for 3-5 minutes before enjoying.
You can purchase Kale at your local Farmers Market and at some fruit and vege stores. Most New World supermarkets here in NZ have been stocking Kale recently due to its growing popularity however I haven’t seen it at any others just yet.
