Kale Chips are awesome and it is ridiculous how much they cost in stores – around 7 $ for a tiny little bag is just too much!
Making kale chips yourself on the other hand, is very, very affordable and super easy too.
Kale is a wonderful alternative to standard chips because you 1. get to eat some greens and barely notice it 2. you eat much less of the unhealthy fats that standard chips are made with 3. you can create literally any flavour you like!
1 bunch of kale
1 TBSP olive oil
1 TBSP sesame oil
1 TBSP sesame seeds
1 tsp salt
Tear the kale leaves of their stalks, place the leaves in a bowl.
(Use the stalks for juices or smoothies)
Massage the 2 oils into the kale leaves to soften them.
Mix in sesame seeds and salt.
Dehydrate for around 6 hours at 42 degrees Celsius / 102F.
Store in an airtight container for up to 1 month.
☼ Be adventurous and try out all kinds of kale chip varieties – and let me know YOUR personal favorite! ☼
