Kale is worth discovering. It has anti-inflammatory benefits, high in antioxidents, full of Vitamin A, C, and K to name a few….great for bone health, arteries and can help lower cholesterol. I have tried to incorporate it in soups, stir-fries but the best and simplest recipe is kale chips. I must admit that I was wary at first and expected the chips to just sit in a bowl on the counter and look pretty but I cannot keep them around long enough for that! All my family and friends munch on them when they come over to visit and they are definitely worth munching on!!! Here are the ingredients:
1 bunch of curly kale (I have bought the non-curly variety but the curly kale is hardier and makes a better chip)
1 tbsp. olive oil
Tear the leaves off the tough stems. Discard the stems…Tear the leaves into smaller pieces into a mixing bowl — they don’t have to be bite-size because they will shrink when baked. Pour the oil over the kale and ensure that all the chips have a light coating of the oil.
Spread the oiled kale pieces onto 2 cookie sheets — make sure they are spread out and don’t overlap each other for best result. Sprinkle a tiny amount of sea salt over the chips. Preheat the over to 375 degrees F. Place the cookie sheets in the pre-heated oven and bake for about 12-15 minutes. Watch the chips so that don’t burn or go brown. Take them out when they are crispy and still green.
Below is my serving bowl of finished yummy kale chips…I would show you more but they were eaten before the end of my photoshoot!! Enjoy!!
