After a few days of juicing, the first thing I wanted to do was chew and crunch on something. But I wanted something healthy so I made a handful of crispy kale chips and I LOVED it! Hubby Ro thought it was seriously yummy too. I bought 100g = 5 stalks of Kale for $5.99 (I found them at Giant Supermarket at Vivocity) and for that price I made 2 bunches of kale and it was so good. I found this recipe from one of my favourite vegan blogs: Veggieful.
1 bunch of kale
salt & pepper
spray olive oil
seasoning (I made one batch with nutritional yeast and garlic powder, and the second batch plain)
- Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius (356 F) and line a baking tray with baking paper.
- Pull the kale leaves from the stems and place the leaves onto a baking tray in a single layer. Discard the stems.
- Make sure they are dry before tossing.
- Lightly spray the leaves with olive oil.
- Sprinkle with salt, pepper and any desired seasonings.
- Bake for 10 minutes or so until crispy, flipping once. (I baked them for 5 minutes without flipping and they were already browned and crispy as I laid them in the middle tray in my oven. The first batch we baked for 6 minutes and they were too crunchy and bitter around the brown edges so the 5 minutes time frame was perfect as they were slightly chewy too.)
- Serve immediately! We preferred the batch which was plain as the kale texture was really crunchy and pure.
