Have you tried making Kale Chips yet? You must give it a go. It’s really easy and they taste delicious. Lots of ways to flavour them for variation too. These seem to me to win the award for most addictive “superfood” ever. They combine the salty crunch of a potato chip with a load of vitamins. The only problem is it takes a LOT of kale to make a fairly moderate amount of the “chips”. But definitely worth it!
There are many different types of kale and you can do chips with most of them. But I would go with curly kale over flat because they are much easier to get to curl up and go crisp.
- 2 bunches of kale - about 2 kg (make sure you get Curly Kale)
- 2 Tbsp macadamia nut oil, melted (or other oil of your choice - coconut is also great)
- ¼ tsp salt
- Preheat the oven to 130 degrees celsius.
- Wash and dry the kale thoroughly. This is important - the kale must be very dry before you start so use a tea towel or paper towels to remove any moisture.
- Remove the tough stems and tear into pieces.
- Put kale in large bowl and drizzle the oil over then use your hands to massage the oil into the kale.
- Spread the kale on a large baking sheet with no overlaps (you will most likely have to do this in two batches).
- Sprinkle with salt.
- Bake for 30-40 minutes or until crispy (depends on the variety of kale and your oven so check first time at 30 minutes) and then you can always do for longer.
