I’ve never been a real fan of chips but I do love a good snack. Chips and a good dip are a classic on a movie night, game night, or when just hanging out with friends but the usual selection at the grocery store doesn’t feel too tempting – at least for me. So what will a veggie-loving city gal eat and make for her friends for this occasions?
I think it’s kind of obvious. KALE CHIPS!
Kale is great in many ways: it’s good for your health, it’s super versatile, and you can easily grow it yourself. I’m still waiting for the magical moment of having my own garden so in the meantime I buy my kale from the store or from the markets. And besides putting it into my smoothies, salads, and stews, I make chips out of it!
The recipe is super simple and very addictive. Every time I make these they tend to disappear in a few minutes. But that just makes my vegetable-loving heart so, so happy. So go and make these for yourself and for your friends too! Enjoy! xo
a few big kale leaves
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp sea salt
(1 tbsp nutritional yeast, if desired)
1. Preheat the oven to 400 F / 200 C degrees. Wash and rinse the kale and dry it thoroughly. Be sure to not leave any water on the leaves.
2. Remove the thick stems and tear the leaves into small pieces. In a large bowl, mix the oil and salt (+ nutritional yeast) and then add the kale. Using your hands, massage the oil and salt onto the kale leaves.
3. Cover a baking tray with parchment paper and spread the kale evenly on the tray, making sure the leaves don’t overlap. Bake for about 8-10 minutes, until the chips are crunchy and slightly brown around the edges. Enjoy straight away!
