Mm.. kale chips!

Oh looky there, I showed up on the blog for the *gasp* second time this week! Honestly, its because I never write anymore and it seems like a good exercise to formulate thoughts better. I’d like to keep it up. I may have stopped because I was putting so much pressure to write decent posts, but you know what .. I’m going to throw that concept away. This is a personal blog and it can be free flowing if I choose to.

My frozen meals have been helpful so far! Easy peasy breakfast and dinners~ I’ll just have to sort out what I’d like to eat for work lunch and I’ll be covering all bases :)

Last night, I ended up preparing more dinners and finally tried making the much acclaimed kale chips. I keep seeing the recipe pop up in Pinterest whenever I search for ‘healthy snacks’. Oh boy, am I glad I made them.. they are so yummy and addictive. I’ve read about how kale is considered a ‘superfood’ and contains a high density of nutrients compared to most other foods. That sounds like a pretty good deal!



I ate them as a work snack today, and before I knew it I had eaten all of them. So I had the idea of making double of what I had yesterday. It already failed though, because I’ve already eaten half of my batch today .. *smiles nervously*. See what I mean!?

Anyways, here’s a recipe:

Kale Chips

Ingredients
- Kale / Baby Kale
- Olive Oil
- Salt & Pepper

Equipment
- Oven
- Baking Tray
- Baking Paper
- Large Bowl
- Tablespoon

Method
1) Turn on the oven to 160 degrees Celcius.
2) Wash your kale, and dry it out as much as possible using paper towels or a salad spinner (otherwise your chips will end up soggy). The baby kale I bought were already prewashed, so I could use it right away. The full size kale will need to be destemmed and broken into bite size pieces.
3) Put your kale in a bowl and pour in 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil, depending on how much you have. I pretty much filled a large bowl and drizzled 2 tablespoons in. The next step is to use your hands to massage the oil into the leaves.
4) Sprinkle with salt and pepper, and loosely mix it with a spoon.
5) Prepare you baking tray with a sheet of baking paper, and lay out one layer of kale. This is important if you want to make sure your chips end up crispy.
6) Cook in the oven for approx. 8-10 minutes or until its crispy but not burnt. I used a chopstick to check if its crispy enough before I take it out.
7) Enjoy your chips now~ or store away in an airtight container for tomorrow :)

Warning: You might not be able to stop eating them once you start.
