Kale chips are the perfect snack. Not only do they taste great but they're super healthy! This 'Queen of greens' is packed full of goodness. With more nutritional value than spinach, it’s debatably one of the healthiest and most nutritious foods. Did you know it has more iron than beef per gram!
Kale can be a little intimidating with it's naturally tough texture and bitter taste. When given a little love though it'll become something you'll find yourself going back for seconds for.
Our recipe for Kale chips is sure to become one of your favourites, we have no doubt your little ones will love this healthy snack too.
Unlike deep-fried potato chips, these are oven baked . This makes them a much healthier option! Rest assured, just like potato chips they've got an excellent crunch!
You can add flavouring too. We like keeping it simple by just adding a little salt. You can easily take them to the next level though by adding a sprinkling of balsamic vinegar. Try tossing in hot sauce before cooking or perhaps a dusting of garlic powder? If you make some kale chips, be sure to let us know! We love seeing your creations.
150g Curly Kale
1 tablespoon Olive oil or Avocado oil
1 tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar
1 pinch sea salt
Preheat oven to 175degC (350 Fahrenheit). Line a tray with baking paper.
1. Shred the leaves from the stalks of the kale. The stalk is very tough, you can discard this.
2. Roughly tear the leaves into bite-sized pieces (3-4cm) and pat dry with paper towels. Toss kale with oil and balsamic vinegar prepared baking tray. Season with just a pinch of flakey salt (they become thin and delicate, so go easy on the salt).
3. Lay on prepared baking tray in a single layer. Bake for 12-15 minutes until crispy!
Their colour will become dark green and the edges a little brown – they nurn easily so be sure to keep an eye on them (burnt kale chips are bitter!). As soon as they seem done, whip them out!
