If you’re anything like me, the idea of kale chips will make you feel all sorts of ‘no thanks’, and it actually took me a really long time to even give this weird wannabe of a chip a chance. I was thinking that who are these people trying to fool? They can’t seriously think that this is a good idea.
BUT one day I gave in. I was obviously frowning and expecting to hate the taste, the texture and basically anything about it, but surprisingly enough, I actually didn’t. As I felt that crunch, I was convinced. The subtle taste of leafy green was honestly nice. And my first thought was “Damn! They were right.”
Maple & Sea Salt Kale Chips
- 6 large kale leafs
- 1 tablespoon of grape seed oil
- 1 teaspoon of pure maple syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon of Maldon sea salt flakes
- 1 pinch of freshly crushed black pepper
Preheat your oven to 150ºC / 300ºF. / Wash the kale thoroughly and pat dry with a paper towel. Get rid of the stem and tear apart the kale leaves into large pieces as they will shrink in the oven. Add to a bowl and pour over the grape seed oil, the maple & the black pepper. Toss with your hands and place in a single layer on a parchment paper lined baking tray. / Bake for about 10 minutes or until crunchy and lightly browned. / Sprinkle with the sea salt and serve fresh. / Enjoy!
