Kale Chips

Three ingredients, ten minutes – do I have your attention yet? This is without a doubt my easiest recipe yet. And who would of thought – green chips!

For those of you that don’t know, kale is actually a variety of cabbage. It belongs to the cruciferous family, along with collards, broccoli and Brussels sprouts. It is one of our original superfoods – high in antioxidant vitamins A, C, and K and full of phytonutrients and fibre. Kale’s benefits therefore are exercise recovery, eye health, blood cholesterol and heart disease risk lowering, and even anti-cancer – just to name a few!

Kale often gets a bad rap due to its bitter taste and chewy texture. But these Kale Chips are the solution. Deliciously crunchy and salty, they melt in your mouth like nothing else. Grab some kale from your local green grocer or market and whip these up this weekend!

 

Ingredients

  • 1 small bunch of kale
  • 1-2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • Sea salt, to taste

Method

  1. Preheat your oven to 120°C.
  2. Roughly tear the kale leaves from the stem and wash in your salad spinner. Be sure you only use a small amount, so as to not overcrowd the oven tray.
  3. Add to the tray, then directly oil and salt before baking for 5-10 minutes or until lightly browned on top. Check them regularly as they cook fast.
  4. Serve on their own or with a delicious homemade guacamole. Enjoy!
