Do you tend to overeat on chips and other salty savory treats? Then kale chips are definitely for you. Super crispy and super tasty, all at the same time. And guess what? They are even good for you. Kale has been branded a superfood for years now and it’s packed with nutrients. If you have never tried kale chips, I highly recommend you do, because although kale tastes very ‘green’ raw and in smoothies, when crisped up and with added salt and parmesan, it tastes delicious! I promise! This is all you need:
Kale (any variety), olive oil, salt, parmesan cheese. You can also add dried chilli, garlic, pepper, other spices you like on your chips.
You need to remove the stem from the kale as it tastes quite bitter, so do that and cut the leaves into appropriate sized chips. Wash thoroughly. Then put all the leaves in a big bowl, add olive oil and salt and mix until all the leaves have oil on them. This helps make them crisp in the oven.
On an oven tray, spread the leaves out one by one. Then drizzle a tiny little parmesan on each piece. Put the tray in the oven on approx 125 degrees Celsius for about 10-15min (preferably on “fan” as well). You may even want to put a wooden spoon in the oven door to keep it slightly open to get rid of any moisture. This helps make the kale chips even more crispy. Make sure you check on them so they don’t turn brown. They are finished when they are all crispy and crunchy.
All you have left to do, is to enjoy! If you are giving up chips as a part of the No Sweets For Six Weeks challenge, this is a perfect substitute. Only one more day to go before we start!
