All hail - it's super food Kale!

Kale is being called 'the Queen of Greens' - high in fibre, iron, vitamins, calcium and antioxidants. Low in Calories and fat. 

We are going to enjoy the superfood in chip form tonight - a fun way to eat your hearty greens.

Got the fun recipe off a friend and decided to give it go for a small dinner party and see how well it goes...

Stunning Curly Kale $1.99/bunch


- 1 bunch of Kale (I selected the smallish variety for the tender soft curly leaves; there are other jumbo size Kale but I found the stem & the leaves are too thick & rough.)
- Olive oil 2T
- Canola Oil Spray.
- Fries Sprinkle.
- Salt & Pepper to taste.

Instructions (fairy simple):

1. Preheat Oven to 200C.

2. Cut off the stem and the leave stems from the back.

3. Tear leaf into chip-size pieces.

4. Wash and throughly dry the Kale.

5. Place them in a large bowl and drizzle 2 tablespoons of olive oil on the leaves.

6. Lay them on baking paper and bake for about 10 minutes. (Spray with canola oil when they gets too dry or if necessary.)

Note: Keep your eyes on them to make sure they don't overcook. They can get burn easily!

Ha! My secret seasoning:- McCormick Fries Sprinkle $4.99 400g.

It contains a combo of paprika, salt, chilli pepper, garlic & onion. Goes really with fries - and of course add wonderful flavor to the Kale chips tonight!

These Kale chips are pretty fantastic - so light and crispy but most importantly - it's guilt-free!!!

Enjoy something nutritious and crispy!

I made 6 branches of Kale into chips and seriously they don't last. They were all gone in 5 minutes between 4 people!! 

"At least it's super food Kale - so keep them coming" they said.

Light and very unsatisfying - they wanted more!!!

Be warned: you will fight with your kids for that last chip. It is addictive ~
