Kale chips

Crunchy and nutritious

 

Kale is one of the hottest greens on the scene these days!  To make it palatable for the kids, I decided to make it in the form of crispy chips.  Not only does Kale have plenty of  antioxidants, it also has lots of vitamin C and A, as well as is a great source of calcium.   Kale is actually a great source of alpha-linoleic acid (ALA), which is a type of omega-3 fatty acid that’s essential for brain health, reduces Type 2 diabetes risk, and boots heart health as well.  Needless to say that Kale chips turned out to be crispy and crunchy and a good for you snack!

What you need:

1 bunch kale

1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 tsp honey

Sea salt to taste

How to make:

1.  Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

2.  Cut away inner ribs from each kale leaf and discard; tear the leaves into pieces of uniform size.  Wash the leaves and dry well on a paper towel till all the moisture is absorbed.

3.  In a bowl mix the vinegar, olive oil and honey together.  Add the dressing to the kale leaves and mix well.  

4.  Spread the kale leaves evenly on a baking sheet and put into pre heated oven.

5.  Roast until mostly crisp, about 35 minutes. Season with salt and serve immediately.
