Discovering Kale Chips: Recipe

Today I discovered the absolute joy of kale chips. I've heard a lot about them on the grapevine (internet) and, as kale is highly nutritious I've been very keen to get my mouth round some, especially as I'm currently under the weather.

I was not disappointed. This simple recipe took 15 minutes from prep to mouth and is totally divine:

  • 3-5 stalks of kale (depending on size)
  • 2 tbsp cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • sea salt
  • Pre-heat the oven to Gas Mark 5 (180 C/ 375 F)
  • Line a baking sheet with baking paper (optional)
  • Tear or cut the leaves from their stalks into large-ish pieces
  • Whisk the oil, cider vinegar and a pinch of sea salt together in a bowl
  • Toss the leaves in the dressing, covering them generously and massaging the curly bits
  • Arrange in a single layer on the baking sheet and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Turn them and cook for a further 5-7 minutes. Be careful not to burn their delicate, crisp edges.
The chips are light and unbelievably moreish - I had to stop myself from making another batch just so that I could have some tomorrow! Thank you to Nourish Me for sharing the beautiful and simple recipe.
