Recipe - Kale Chips

Saturday, February 21, 2015



I'm not the biggest crisp lover to be honest, the only crisps I'll ever really eat are my home cooked beetroot crisps, asides from that Walkers, Pringles and Doritos don't really do it for me.
I've heard that Whole Foods sell kale chips and I'd always wanted to try some but didn't really think it was a thing. After some research, I found that kale chips are just like beetroot chips and are so easy to make!

This dark, leafy green has been floating around on nutrition and good food websites for a while now, yet so many people are reluctant to eat it. Kale contains so many health benefits and at just 33 calories a cup, here are some:

  • 3 grams of protein
  • 2.5 grams of fibre (to help you feel fuller)
  • Vitamins A, B, C and K
  • Omega 3 fats - the good kind of course 

Don't be put off by the colour or not knowing how to cook it because I have just the recipe for you...

Despite this being a recipe post, there's not really that much to it other than throwing some kale onto a baking tray, sprinkling with salt and bunging in the oven for 10 minutes. Anyway here's how to make the best kale chips.


Ingredients:

Curly Kale
Sea Salt

Method:

Begin by preheating the oven to 180 degrees or gas mark 4.

Next, cover a baking tray with some greaseproof paper and place the kale on top.


Sprinkle over some sea salt and give the kale a mix around on the tray.


Put the tray in the oven and set a timer for 10 minutes.



About half way through, take the tray out and give the kale a mix around to ensure that it is all being cooked. Sprinkle over more sea salt if desired.

Once the ten minutes is up, remove the tray and place the greaseproof paper and kale aside to cool down.



Once cooled, sit back and enjoy these guilt-free crisps!

Say goodbye to greasy potato chips that contain over 11% of your daily fat intake and hello to healthy kale chips that are the most nutrient dense foods on the planet.

P.S. You're probably going to need a tooth pick after this...

Thank you for reading, let me know if you try this recipe!
