Crunchy Kale Chips

Hail The Kale!

&nbsp Kale chips are a big hit with my kids and, evidently, their friends, who come around and hoover them down before returning home demanding their mums make them too.

The teacher at school has her doubts, however, explaining to the kids (who are starting to ask for kale chips to be packed in their lunch boxes) that chips are bad for your health. Good on the teacher, because conventional chips are clearly not healthy for your health. Kale on the other hand is an incredibly nutritious food, and kale chips are awesome for taste buds and your health!

Keeping up with the demand is the real struggle. Luckily, the kids enjoy helping me make these moorish, healthy snacks so we can have them in constant supply.

  1. 1 bunch of kale
  2. 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
  3. Celtic sea salt or Himalayan rock salt
  1. Preheat oven to 150 degrees

  6. Lay strips of kale onto large flat pan (I usually need 3 pans) and put in oven for approx 10-12 mins
  7. Check kale at 10 minutes to make sure they are becoming crispy and not turning brown
  8. Spin the tray around (to ensure even heating).
  9. Remove from oven and sprinkle lightly with Celtic sea salt or Himalayan rock salt
  10. Don’t forget to make sure they are completely cool before storing in glass mason jars or plastic container

Why you should be eating kale?

Kale is a dark leafy green (we all know we should be eating more of these), full of health benefits and nutrients. Like? Kale:

– is loaded with vitamins, especially vitamin A, but also vitamins C and K and folic acid;

– is rich in calcium, potassium, copper and iron. These nutrients are necessary for healthy bones, skin and eyes;

– contains important anti-oxidants such as carotenoids & flavonoids which can help to prevent cancer;

– is low in calories & high in fibre, so it’s great for digestion;

– is an anti-inflammatory food with lots of omega-3 fatty acids, which help to fight inflammatory and autoimmune disorders.

Kale is a very versatile plant that can be cooked in many ways, including steaming, stir-fries and salads … oh, and chips!

Have a flavourful day!
