Green Chips

Standard

A delightful way to eat kale if you or the kids find it unpalatable! Sadly, I don’t have a photo because they the last batch was eaten too quickly!

Kale Chips (Green Chips)

Ingredients

1 bunch of washed and dried kale, core removed, chopped in large pieces
1 tablespoon olive oil (or I used an olive oil spray, it coats much easier)
Sea salt, to taste
(and a bit (about 1 tsp) of honey to make it even more palatable if the kids are just beginning to eat kale)

Directions

Put all the ingredients in a small bowl and combine together with your hands to make sure that the kale is evenly coated.

Preheat oven to 150degsC.

Put the leaves in single layer on a large baking sheet covered with baking paper.

Bake for 10 minutes. Flip them over and bake for another 10 minutes until crispy but not burnt.  Watch them closely in the last few minutes as they turn brown quite quickly.

These are great packed in a hard container (so they don’t get smushed!) for the kids lunches, crumbled on top of salads or even popcorn!

Feel free to leave out the honey if you would like them as a savoury snack.  I find that the touch of honey makes it more palatable for the little ones.

Variation:  My aunt also minces some garlic and rubs it on the kale as well before baking just for another flavour.  Yum!
