KALE CHIPS

baked kale chips

Many of you have asked me to give you a quick kale chip recipe.

Here is a base recipe that I share with clients who don’t have a dehydrator, I call this a base recipe because you can add other spices to change up the flavours and taste. Think along the lines of popcorn and all the varieties you can do the same with kale chips mix and match spices you like!

A lot of people are in transition with how much raw and living food they are eating and can’t afford a dehydrator or just don’t have the space for one.

This recipe is for those who don’t have a dehydrator but still want to enjoy the benefits of kale in this crunchy delicious chip format.

I will also be posting a dehydrated kale chip recipe…stay tuned.

You will need

1 tbsp Sunflower oil

1 teaspoon Sea salt

2 heads of Organic kale

Bowl

Baking sheet

Instructions

Preheat oven @ 350

Wash, de stem and dry kale, (to de stem kale simply grasp the stalk at the bottom and run hands in a pinching motion down to the tip gently pulling the leaves off in one move)

Tear the kale into bite sized pieces and put into the bowl with oil and sea salt. Massage the oil and salt into the kale which will coat all the leaves.

Place onto baking sheet making sure not to overlap or crowd as you want them to dry out not steam and stay wilted.

Put into the oven for fifteen minutes.

Take out let them cool and enjoy, store in a container …..if they last that long, here’s to kale in your teeth ūüôā
