Quickly Baked Kale Crisps
I have a new addiction. Kale.Well, Kale Crisps to be specific.
No, they do not come in a packet and no they are not fried. They are baked, crispy little mouthfuls of deliciousness and it's a great way, should you have children, to get the kids to eat this gorgeous dark leafy vegetable that is oh so good for all of us!
They are incredibly quick and easy to prepare and what I normally do is prepare a big bowl and just munch on them while watching Grey's Anatomy (well, at least now that I'm taking a break from studying since I've just done my exams and waiting for the results so am distracting myself by doing marathons of my favourite tv show).
This can also be a great choice for your next party, instead of filling lots of bowls with fried crisps covered in weird colours and fake flavours, you can make this amazing snack in just 10 min and offer your guests something crunchy, tasty and nutritious at the same time!
1 big bunch of Kale, preferably organic (washed, dried and roughly torn in pieces. Stems discarded.)
1tbsp Extravirgin Olive Oil
1tsp Hymalaian Salt (or sea salt)
Preheat the oven at 200C-400F-Gas Mark 6.
Put the Kale pieces into a bowl, add the rest of the ingredients and mix it up.
Pop onto a baking tray and in the oven for about 10 min until the kale starts to brown a tiny bit on top.
Take it out of the oven and transfer the crisps into a bowl of your choice.
As simple as that.
