Good afternoon! I have a headache that I can’t seem to shake today! Oh well.
I was in the mood for a snack and thought I would share one of my favourites with you all! Baked kale chips! So easy to make and jam packed full of nutrition. They are quick and require very few ingredients.
I started by tearing the kale leaves off of their stalk and ripping them into smaller pieces. This step makes me feel like a cross between Popeye and the Hulk!!! I’m so tough! Those kale leaves don’t stand a chance!!!
Once you have conquered the brutalizing of the veggie simply rinse the leave pieces well and pat dry with paper towel. I like to make sure they are good and dry so they don’t turn out soggy.
Once your leaves are dry pour on about 1/2 tablespoon of oil. I used grape seed but you can use olive, vegetable, whatever you like. Once the oil is on massage it through with your hands and then season. Again use whatever seasoning you like. I used organic salt free seasoning and garlic powder. In the past I’ve used everything from salt and pepper to chilli flakes, Italian seasoning. Really whatever you have a taste for will work.
Once seasoned to your desire simply toss again and place in a cookie sheet. I like to line my sheet with foil for easy clean up.
That is it they are ready for the I’ve oven! Pop them into a warm oven, I Usually go with 365 degrees for about 15 minutes flipping half way through. The edges will brown slightly and the whole chip will get crispy. I keep a close eye on them near the end cuz they can go from just nicely crisp to over done quickly.
They bake down substantially, so make lots or don’t offer to share ! Kale chips are a healthy, low calorie, fibre rich, filling snack. Kale itself is a little nutritional powerhouse, full of iron, vitamins and antioxidants.
Give them a try!
