Kale Chips

If you haven’t tried Kale chips you have to give them a go! I picked mine from my mums garden, she grows lots of lovely veggies! You can find it in the grocery store near the leafy greens. You can also use kale in salads or steam it with other veggies it has a great natural flavour. 

 When I was young we used to get crispy seaweed at our local Chinese restaurant which i think was just deep-fried cabbage, this reminded me of that but much nicer and it’s far healthier. Although it might not look like it they actually are really tasty and a great substitute for crisps (potato chips)

Chris was skeptical when he saw me picking it and telling him how addictive they are but after trying them he loved it and we make them quite a bit now as a good naughty tasting, healthy snack.

Kale has more iron than red meat and more calcium per calorie than milk, it is very high in fiber, a great anti inflammatory and full of vitamins and minerals. It also fights 5 types of cancer, ovarian, breast, colon, bladder and prostate.

So if you haven’t tried it, it’s definitely a vegetable that you should try to include in your diet and Kale Chips I think are the tastiest way to have it, so the next time you are craving crisps or something a little salty give them a go.

Ingredients:

  • 1 bunch of kale
  • 1 tablespoon of Olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of Cajun Spice or seasoning of your choice

Directions:

Pre heat your oven to 325°F, Wash the kale thoroughly with cold water then pat dry with kitchen roll. Remove the rib of the kale with a knife then tear into large pieces. Place the kale in a bowl, drizzle with a little olive oil and toss untill fully coated. Spread out on a cookie sheet that has been lined with foil then sprinkle with Cajun spice (you can use any flavor you like, herbs, salt and pepper, cayenne pepper, paprika anything that takes your fancy)  Place in the middle shelf of your oven and bake for 15 minutes of until the kale is crispy but not burnt. Pop in a bowl and watch them disappear!
