Cheap Eats: Kale Chips Recipe

Kale Chips Recipe

Today's post is a recipe for kale chips which has taken me a few attempts to perfect, after burning the first lot and then drowning the second lot in too much oil, I've finally got something which will rival crisps in flavour but with fewer calories and packed with vitamins.

Curly kale is a vegetable which can be bought extremely cheaply from supermarkets. I picked up a 200g bag for just 50p although most places charge about £1 for this much. Right now Tesco has kale on offer for 3 500g bags for £4! Kale has a quite strong and bitter taste but when baked it transforms into a delicious crispy treat.

1. Pre-heat your oven to 175. Take a massive handful of kale (about 50g) and dry it with some kitchen roll. I like to squeeze mine a little to make sure it isn't wet at all.

2. Remove the hard stalks so you just end up with bite sized pieces of kale leaf.

3. Put about a dessert spoon of olive oil in a dish with a pinch of salt, pepper, sugar and whatever seasoning/herbs you like. I used some seasoning which is meant for chicken and it turned out really well. Mix in the kale until its all evenly covered.

4. Place the kale evenly on a sheet of greaseproof paper and bake for around 10 minutes. Just keep an eye on them so they don't go as black as mine did!

Did you know that in the film Toy Story, Sid's hallway carpet is the same design as the hallway carpet in The Shining? That's well creepy.
