Crunch on Some Green Chips

September 30, 2010 at 7:26 am Leave a comment

I know what you are thinking... but honest, kale chips are good!

It’s true.  I love Kale!

It is dark green and full of nutrition.  However, there is only so much kale that you can add to recipes. Whenever I have leftover kale I make up Kale Chips.  They are easy and tasty and a great way to add vegetables to your diet.  You can make fancy kale chips with a nut-based coating, but I am usually too lazy for those.  The simplest way to make kale chips is to do the following:

  • Preheat your oven to 375 deg. and cover a baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper
  • Cut the rib out of the kale and dispose, keep the leaves
  • Soak the leaves in cold water for a few minutes and make sure to clean off all of the dirt
  • Shake off the water, but do not dry
  • Sprinkle your favourite seasonings on the leaves, tossing to coat
  • This could include: salt, smoked paprika, parmesan cheese, garlic powder… any ideas?
  • Spread the leaves on the baking sheet and put in the oven
  • Check the leaves after 5 minutes and every 5 minutes after.  At first the leaves will wilt, but then they will crisp up
  • Crispy, yummy & nutritious!

Kale Facts:

  • Kale have the highest nutritional value for the lowest calories of all whole food
  • A cousin of cabbage, collard greens & brussel sprouts
  • Top 3 Vitamins: A, C & K
  • Minerals: Iron, Calcium, Potassium, Magnesium
  • Cancer-fighting & Arthritis-preventing
  • Detoxifying
  • You can introduce kale to your baby at 8 months, but they may find the taste rather strong – however, you’ll never know until you try it!  Maybe you have a baby kale lover?!
