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.
