Spicy Kale Chips

I’ve written about kale chips before but on a very hot sunny evening recently my d-in-law, Juicy Health Co. uploaded a recipe on Facebook using a mix of turmeric, paprika, onion powder, sea salt and pepper and rubbed with some apple cider vinegar and olive oil – and I just couldn’t resist turning the oven on again and digging out the bag of fresh kale I had in the bottom of my fridge.

My husband and I sat outside in the sunshine devouring the chips (more like crisps really) and argued over the crumbs.    I was too quick in reading the recipe and also added some hot chilli powder but the chips turned out amazing, if a little hot !

They really are so easy to make. 2016-07-17_164646350_71D4C_iOS  Tear the kale into pieces, removing any hard stems.

Sprinkle over the seasonings, vinegar and a lug of olive oil and massage the kale with your hands.  It’s quite therapeutic doing this and it makes the kale turn bright green; turning it from bitter and tough into silky and sweet.  A couple of minutes massaging ensures perfect chips.



Put the seasoned and massaged kale on a large baking sheet and pop into a hot oven 190°C for about 12 to 15 minutes, until it is just starting to crisp but not burn.

As it cools, it crisps up.


Transfer into a bowl and enjoy a healthy, nutritious snack.  Make it as mild or as spicy as you want.
