Kale chip recipes
A different spin on potato chips. It’s kale chips. I’m sure by now you’ve heard about these but did you know they could be cooked in different flavors rather easily?
Surprisingly kids love these chips even tho they are made out of the green stuff.
Their so easy to make anyone and I mean anyone can make these. And what most people don’t know is that you can make them in many flavors. Let’s start with the basic recipe.
- Remove the leaves from the hard stem by simply tearing it off by hand or running a sharp knife down the spine of the stem to separate.
- Wash & dry the leaves.
- Preheat oven to 300.
- Toss kale leaves with olive oil. About 1 tablespoon per bunch of kale leaves. Sprinkle with a little salt.
5. Spread kale leaves out on a cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes then rotate the pan and bake for additional 12 minutes.
6. Allow it to cool and serve.
You’ll be surprised at how much your kids will love these. And there are so many different flavors you can make them in.
Here are a few recipe from one of my favorite cookbooks called The Fresh Energy Cookbook by Natalia Rose & Doris Choi. Anything tossed with coconut is right up my alley so when I came across this recipe that mixed coconut with kale I was in heaven. Their also super easy to make and great for a last minute party idea.
Coconut Kale chips
2 bunches kale chips
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/8 cup agave nectar
sea salt to taste
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
Massage the kale leaves with oil, agave & sea salt. Sprinkle with coconut flakes. They direct you to dehydrate them in a dehydrator but those of us who don’t own them like me can simply bake them in a 300 oven for 20 minutes rotating them half way thru.
Now on to cheese one of my favorite things but not so good for my tummy since I am lactose intolerant. If you also love cheese but cheese doesn’t love you this cheesy kale recipe is for you. You can top off steamed veggies with this cheese sauce.
Cheesy Kale chips
2 bunches kale, stems removed, leaves kept as whole as possible
1 cup cheese sauce (see recipe below)
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
Massage kale with cheese sauce. Preheat oven to 300. Sprinkle nutritional yeast onto kale leaves. Bake for 25 mins rotating half way thru.
1/2 red bell pepper
1/4 cup water
2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 Tablespoons nutritional yeast
2 Tablespoons raw sesame tahini
1 garlic clove
salt & pepper to taste
Blend all ingredients in a food processor until smooth.
I promise you your kids will love them! If you feel like you really don’t have time or want to cook kale chips you can also buy them. Some of my favorite brands are Brad’s, Alive radiant & Rhythm superfoods. Whether you bake them or buy them just try them you’re kids will love them! Trust me.
