Kale and other vegetable chips
So who hasn’t tried kale chips yet? Seems like everyone is talking about kale these days.
I guess it’s like anything, you need to be game enough to try something new. Once you have and decided that you like it, it becomes a new inclusion in your repertoire.
I actually prefer the taste of spinach in most recipes, so it took me quite a long time to try kale chips. I’m glad I did now though, they are definitely a yummy alternative to ‘regular’ chips.
Roast veggie chips are delish too. We often make our own potato or beet chips. The veggies do need to be sliced thinly and uniformly, so use a slicer and watch your fingers!
We use our spiraliser for potato or beet chips. It gives the chips a hole in the middle, but they taste great, so we don’t mind how they look.
Here’s the recipe
- 1 bunch of curly kale
- 1-2 tbsp Olive oil, or use a spray
- Sea salt & cracked black pepper
- Lemon juice, paprika, chilli flakes, or your favourite herbs/spices
- Preheat oven to 140 - 160℃ and line two baking trays with baking paper.
- Wash and thoroughly dry the kale. Tear the leaves into small pieces.
- Spread the kale leaves out in a single layer on the baking trays. Lightly coat with oil and massage into the leaves.
- Sprinkle evenly with salt, pepper and other herbs or spices as desired.
- Bake for 10 - 20 minutes, until crunchy - the edges should be slightly brown, but be careful not to burn them.
