Kale crisps are quick and easy to make, pack a lot of flavour and are far superior to normal crisps.
Potato-based crisps are particularly bad for your teeth as they get stuck easily and the starches in the potato feed the plaque-causing bacteria. Potato-based crisps also do little to fill you up and spike your blood sugars. Hello carb cravings and fat storage.
Kale crisps, on the other hand, are low in starch and therefore are better for your teeth and blood sugar. Kale is rich in nutrients and antioxidants!
1 bunch of kale, washed and dried
1 tbsp olive oil
2 dashes salt
2 dashes garlic powder
Preheat oven to 150C and place a sheet of parchment paper on a baking sheet.
Take the washed and dried kale and rip them into “crisp” size pieces and place in a large bowl.
Drizzle with olive oil, salt, and garlic powder. Mix until the kale pieces are evenly covered.
Place kale onto prepared sheet in an even layer. Bake for 10 minutes.
Flip over the kale to cook the other sides of the pieces. Bake for another 10 minutes until the edges just start turning brown. Monitor them well, or you’ll have burnt kale crisps.
Serve & enjoy!
Tip: You can use any spice, so try onion powder, paprika, or even turmeric.
