Baked kale chips

One of the vegetables that are growing really well this year is the kale. So now it is time to test out some various recipes with kale. If you have any good suggestions for something I can try, please feel free to share them with me.

One of my initial experiments with kale has been to make chips/crisps, which is actually very simple.

Set the oven to 175 degrees C.
Pick the kale and rinse well.
Dry off on a paper towel or in a salad spinner.
Pull apart to edible sizes.

Pull away from the middle stem of the leaves.
Lay out on a baking tray lined with baking paper.

Use a brush to put oil on the leaves evenly, or a small spray bottle if you have one. Sprinkle some salt on top and other seasoning if you wish.

Put in the tray(s) in the oven and cook for 10 minutes. Keep an eye on them so they don’t get burnt.

Take out and let them cool slightly. Enjoy by itself, as part of a tapas spread or as a small side to your dinner. Delicious and healthy!

Kale is a great source for Vitamin A, K, C and B6, in addition to Calcium, Potassium and Magnesium. The nutrient values are of course higher when enjoying kale raw, but there is no doubt a bit of kale chips is a healthy snack and a very good alternative to normal potato chips or similar.

If you have other good ideas for use of kale, I still have plenty to use in the garden. 🙂
