Kale chips are a great way to get extra dark greens into your diet. I love dark green veggies because they are full of antioxidants. I’ve found these make a great snack to munch on while I am getting dinner ready.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 large head of kale
- Small glass bowl with grape seed oil-approximately 2 tablespoons
- Celtic salt for taste. One of my favorite salts is Selina Naturally.
How to make it:
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
- Remove the kale from the stalk. I like to cut the kale into strips. I find this way the stem pulls apart easier.
- Place 2 tablespoons of grape seed oil in a bowl.
- Dip your fingers into the bowl and gently rub the grape seed oil over the kale leaves.
- Place the kale on the glass baking sheet.
- Bake the kale for approximately 5 minutes. I check on it because it has a tendency to burn quickly.
- After 5 minutes I pull it from the oven and flip it. I find a large spatula works the easiest.
- Once the kale is flipped I add some Celtic salt to it before returning it to the oven for another 5 minutes.
- It may be done sooner than 5 minutes. Once it is done I remove it from the oven and allow it to cool on a cooling rack.
I like to use Celtic salt because of its high mineral content.
Don’t toss your kale stems. Save them and put them into your crock pot with other veggies. You can also add them to your soups. For even more ideas, click here: (How to Eat More Vegetables).
If you like hot spices; consider adding cumin or curry at step #8.
You can serve them hot or cold. Try them and let me know what you think. I’d love to hear from you. Please leave a comment in the section below.
