- Kale is known o be rich in beta carotene and many anti-oxidant that help fight cancer and heart diseases.
- Of course kale is a very low calorie veggie and so obviously I wanted it in my weight loss diet.
- And I don’t want to be keep munching on the sweet potato baked fries whenever I feel like partying with myself, so kale chips are my latest favourite.
- And they taste so good when used in soups too, try it out guys!
- You could even use these kale greens in fruit smoothies if you dare enough to start with, even if you succeed to throw in 4-5 leaves that’s a win!
- 2 cups kale leaves
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon chilli powder
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- Pre-heat the oven to its maximum temperature.
- Wash the Kale leaves well under cold running water. Drain all the water and dry them using a kitchen towel or napkin. It helps to make the chips crisp as any moisture can ruin the texture.
- Take the leave into a mixing bowl an add olive oil, Coat them well with a wooden spatula.
- Add in other spice powders and coat well , the oil helps to bind the spices well to the leaves.
- Arrange them on a baking tray such that each leaf touches its base and make sure you are not over crowding the leaves.
- Bake them at 150 to 170 C for 10-15 minute by checking in between. Mine took less than 15 min to turn crispy.
Addition of garlic powder is optional and you could choose your fav spice powders including curry powder.
