Kale Chips with Sea Salt

I love adding kale to my green smoothies as they really add a nutritional punch!

Kale is considered a “superfood” because it’s so nutritionally dense. This dark leafy green is packed full of fiber and vitamins. Its high beta-carotene content means it helps protect your body from cancer and heart disease and the vitamin K helps keep your blood healthy!

If you thought spinach had a great nutritional profile, then you should really check out kale. It contains more than ten times the vitamin C of spinach and more vitamin A and vitamin K as well. Kale also contains more lutein, an antioxidant that works to keep your eyes healthy.

Since the leafy green is so good for you, I was looking for another way to incorporate it into the diet.

These kale chips are so quick and easy to make! They taste great and make a nice, healthy snack!

Kale Chips with Sea Salt

Ingredients

  • One Bunch of Kale
  • Olive Oil Spray (If you don’t have spray – 1 tablespoon of olive oil will do the trick!)
  • Sea Salt, to taste

Method

  1. Preheat an oven to 175 degrees C. Line a tray with baking paper/parchment paper.
  2. With a knife (or rip with your hands if your making enough just for you!) remove the leaves from the stems and tear/cut the leaves into bite size pieces.
  3. Wash the kale and dry carefully, ever with a towel or salad spinner.
  4. Arrange the kale in a single layer on the tray and spray with olive oil spray (alternatively, if you don’t have the spray toss the kale with olive oil in a bowl then arrange on tray)
  5. Sprinkle and season to your taste with sea salt.
  6. Bake until the edges brown but are not burnt and the kale feels crisp, 10 to 15 minutes.
  7. Place baking sheet on a rack to cool and then dig in! 🙂
