Kale chips really are simple to make, delicious and well – quite addictive. This weekend, give them a go – I can almost guarantee you will LOVE them as much as I do!
1 bunch of organic kale, washed, dried and leaves removed from the stalks (I leave mine on, I like the different texture – but this isn’t for everyone)
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp (or more) dried chill flakes
1/2 tsp cumin
salt and pepper
a sprinkle of white sesame seeds
2 garlic bulbs crushed
2 tbsp savoury yeast flakes (optional but Oh So Yummy!)
2 tbsp oil (coconut or otherwise)
1. Chop all the kale into pieces around 8cm long – it doesn’t really matter what size so long as they are all similar in length
2. Pop the Kale, herbs, spices, and oil into a large mixing bowl and using your hands rub the kale so that every leaf is covered in the yummy spice mixture.
3. Place the kale on a lined baking tray, make sure that there isn’t to much over lap – this can stop them from being crunchy
4. sprinkle any left over herbs and spices (this is where I sneak a little bit more chill on to my chippies)
5. If you have a dehydrator, bang them on in – if not put your oven onto the lowest heat and pop in the kale. Using a wooden spoon (and it MUST be wooden!) pry the oven door open allowing the moisture to escape.
6. Depending on your oven, your kale chips will start to crisp up within 20 mins – watch them closely as they can go from delicious to burnt rather quickly.
7. Enjoy them straight away
