Okay I have a serious affection for kale. I put it in smoothies, make caesar salad out of it, (and pretty much every salad) and add it to my soups, pasta sauces and stir fry. My love for kale is dangerously close to an obsession, so it should come as no surprise when I say that I also love kale chips. Kale chips are one of my favourite snacks. They’re as crunchy as regular chips, but a ton healthier – which makes you feel a lot less badly when you crush a whole bowl of them. I know because I’ve polished off many bowls in my day. 😛
Try them for yourself and feel the love!
1 large head of lacinato kale
1-2 tablespoon of coconut oil, melted ( I do this by just putting it on the baking sheet and putting it in the over while it preheats, doesn’t take long at all to melt it)
2 tablespoon of nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon of sea salt
- Preheat oven to 375.
- Rinse and dry kale and rip into “chip” size pieces. On a large baking sheet with parchment paper, add melted coconut oil, nutritional yeast and sea salt to the pan, then add kale and massage in the oil and seasonings. This helps ensure each piece is coated.
- Place in the oven and bake for about 10-20 minutes, or until crunchy but not burnt. I set the timer for every 2-3 minutes and stir them around and pick out the pieces that are starting to get crunchy so they don’t get burnt – which can happen quickly.
- Once your kale chips are done, pull them out of the oven and let them cool. After that, it’s time to enjoy them. My favourite part. 😉
