Kale Chips Recipe Paleo Every Day
I have always been a fan of vegetable crisps therefore when a trend for Kale chips emerged, I was really excited. I first tried some at Pret but was dissappointed by the strong onion powder they coat the leaves in. I have since tried other brands found in Whole Foods, but when I came across a recipe in the Paleo Every Day book, I wanted to give them a try. I'm not Paleo, but I always love trying something new and Kale is high in Iron, vitamin K, vitamin C, calcium and antioxidants.
1 bunch of kale (about 400g)
1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
Preheat the oven to 120c. Lune 2 trays with baking paper
Wash the kale and pat dry. Remove the central stalk from the leaves (these can become tough and not great to snack on).
In a large bowl, toss the kale with coconut oil and some salt. Place the kale on a tray in a single layer. Roast for 35-40 minutes or until crispy.
The kale took a little longer to roast than suggested, but I turned the oven off and let them dry in the heat of the cooling oven to make sure there wasn't any soggy pieces. I also split the batch and tried some with different variations the book suggested. Smoked paprika sprinkled over didn't really have much impact, nor did the sesame seeds as my preference was the simple salted chips.
They are great to snack on at work and have kept really crispy throughout the week on my desk in a container.
I received these books from Macmillan Publishing but all reviews are my own.
