Who doesn’t crave some snacks while watching movies? Everyone does, I bet! That’s why a good kitchen clean-up is important. To stay away from bad habits and not feel guilty for eating crap, such as potato chips or popcorn loaded with butter.
How about instead of those mentioned above we can still indulge ourselves in some healthier snacks. Such as my simple kale chips! You can add your favourite toppings and spice them to your taste!
Kale is a fibrous plant, a cross between cabbage and lettuce and has an amazing texture while combined with olive oil. It’s very high in fibre and antioxidants, which by now we all know how important they are, don’t we? You are probably thinking, kale is not the same as a chip! but doing the hacks in my recipe below you will get that perfect crunch you’re looking for!
Ingredients: 1 big bunch of kale, 1 tbsp olive oil, your favourite spices, salt.
You will need: an oven, a baking sheet and parchment paper.
Method: Part all the kale leaves from the stems. Wash and towel dry the leaves. This step is very important if not the kale will stay soggy.
Lay the kale on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Sprinkle some olive oil and massage into the leaves without rubbing too much. Add salt and your fave spices.
My recommended mixes of spices are:
- cayenne pepper, and dried cilantro
- parmesan and dried basil
- all spice, sumac and dried parsley
After adding your choice of spices and salt, place the tray into a preheated oven at 170°C for 20-25 min or until light brown on the edges and crispy all over.
Nice and easy for a good and healthy snack! In addition this recipe is Paleo, Vegan (don’t add Parmesan) and Gluten Free.
Enjoy at any hour of the day with your fave movie! 😉
