As well as being high in vitamins A, C & K, kale helps to fight heart disease, cancer, mental illness and high blood pressure. These kale chips are a great healthy snack to fight those cravings.
You can make this healthy snack in a food dehydrator or an oven.
- 1 head kale, washed and dried thoroughly
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil or flax seed oil
- Sea salt for light seasoning
Procedure for oven:
- Preheat oven to 120ºC
- Remove the ‘ribs’ from the kale and cut into 2 inch pieces
- Toss with olive oil and salt
- Lay on a baking tray and bake in the oven for 20mins until crisp, making sure to turn half way through
- Serve hot or allow to cool and eat as a healthy snack or add to salads
Procedure for food dehydrator:
- Chop Kale into 2 inch pieces. Remember they will shrink in size after they have been dehydrated so make them bigger than bite size
- Drizzle with flax seed oil and sprinkle with sea salt
- Leave for around 30mins to absorb the flavours
- Spread pieces out onto your food dehydrator tray
- Set your dehydrator to 52ºC and leave kale chips in for around 8 hours
- Chips will be ready when they are crispy – don’t be tempted to take them out too early!
These chips will keep for around 2 years if stored correctly. We recommend a vacuum sealer to seal your chips for longer storage.
