Kale chips are my absolute favourite healthy chips. It is so simple to make, there is no need to buy packaged kale chips. I even got my husband (a Dorito's lover) to switch over to kale chips. I have put a very basic recipe here I use that to make simple salty kale chips, but you can add your favourite seasoning to give your chips flavour!
My favourite is the Garlic Lover's Seasoning from Flavour God!
Rip your kale from the stems! Kale is a thicker green leaf which means that it has more cellulose - making it's cell walls sturdier and stronger than your regular lettuce. Don't cut your kale with a knife! Rip it! It will rip along the cell walls, preserving more nutrients than if you had cut it with a knife!
1 medium bunch of kale
2 tsp of EVOO
a pinch of salt
a pinch of garlic powder
Preheat over to 300 degrees F
Ensure that you have washed your kale thoroughly. I like to use a salad spinner to get all the water out of the kale
After all the water and moisture is out of your leaves, start to rip it from the stem into bite size pieces
Put all your kale into a bowl and add the 2 tsp of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Start to massage the oil into your kale, until all of your kale is coated in olive oil and massaged thoroughly
Sprinkle the salt and garlic salt over the kale and toss to mix and coat over all the pieces
Bake in the oven for 10-15 mins, when you start to see the edges brown a bit
Remove from the oven and let them sit for 5 mins, so that they can continue to crisp up
Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days
