Anyone thats had dinner with me probably knows that I love adding salt to my food (hey I’m cutting back). I would rarely buy chips, but if they were in front me me, I may have had a handful, or 3.
For those of you who are finding it hard to give up the crispy, salty, processed, deep fried (am I putting you off yet) potato chips I present you with an alternative. And trust me this one is so much tastier, plus its healthy and takes literally 15 minutes to make. Perfect.
Baked Kale Chips
- 1 bunch of kale: There are different varieties of Kale but this recipe works well with them all.
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- Sea salt to taste
- Optional: herbs, spices, garlic, coconut aminos, tamari, parmesen cheese or nutritional yeast to season
- Rinse the kale in advance so that it can dry thoroughly before baking. If the kale isn’t dry, the chips may end up crewy and won’t keep for as long.
- Preheat the oven to 160 degrees delcius and line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
- Remove the center stems of the kale by running your fingers down each side and and either tear or cut up the leaves into bite size pieces.
- Toss the kale and olive oil together in a large bowl and sprinkle with salt. If your feeling adventurous, go ahead and add some extra seasonings. Try chilli flakes for that extra bite, coconut aminos or nutritional yeast flakes.
- Spread the kale on the prepared baking trays (don’t crowd them or they won’t be crispy) and bake for 10 – 15 minutes or until crisp.
