A short and sweet (or savoury) post for this simple but delicious recipe.
Kale chips are something you'd never really crave until you try them; once you do, you're hooked! But in contrast to regular 'chips', these are actually good for you...so a second helping is advised. Kale is full of health benefits:
- It is high in antioxidants.
- Contains ALA omega 3 acids (for brain and heart health).
- Is high in calcium and extremely high in vitamins A, K and C; more vitamin C than an Orange!
- It also contains carotenoids which become more readily available to the body when kale is combined with healthy fats like those in olive oil and nuts (two ingredients in this recipe).
|Wash 4 large curly kale leaves. Dry thoroughly before tearing into smaller pieces.|
|Coat with 1.5tsp olive oil, 1tsp soy sauce and sea salt and black pepper to taste. | Mix thoroughly to ensure they are all coated.|
|Bake in a preheated oven at 175 degrees C (350 degrees F) for 6-12 minutes. | Once crispy, remove from the oven.|
|Once cooked, top with crushed cashews, chilli powder or sesame seeds.|
