Kale crisps are a much healthier alternative to regular potato crisps. Kale is very nutritious and loaded with lots of vitamins and minerals such as vitamins C & K, beta-carotene and quercetin. Kale also contains glucosinolates which are important for supporting our detoxification. They are particularly important for hormone balance as these compounds help to detoxify used hormones. Kale crisps are very quick and simple to make and extremely tasty. Enjoy them as a snack or an accompaniment to a meal, but keep an eye on them when they're cooking as they can burn easily.
Vegetarian, dairy & gluten free
1 bag of kale (washed)
2 tbsp of olive oil
1 clove garlic (minced)
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds (optional)
1 tsp sweet smoked paprika (optional)
Preheat oven to 180°C. Rinse kale and pat dry thoroughly. Remove any large tough stalks. Toss in a bowl with the oil, salt, minced garlic and smoked sweet paprika (if using). Spread on a backing tray and bake for 10-15 mins turning with tongs every 5 mins. Keep an eye as it burns quite easily, and you just want the edges browned and crisp. Sprinkle with sesame seeds if using and serve. Tastes good eaten cold later too or in a salad.
