Kale Chips

Yes school holidays are almost over in South Australia but there's still time to try making this delicious snack for your children. Yes as promised some time ago, I am posting the recipe for delicious Kale Chips. Why yes, kale can be a very tasty snack, as these chips will prove to you. They are way 'cooler' and look so much more interesting than regular old potato chips. Great served alongside hummus and veggie sticks for an afternoon playdate.

INGREDIENTS
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
3-4 tbsp macadamia oil or melted coconut oil to coat the kale
Handful of almonds and cashews
1 bunch of kale with 6-7 stalks, green or purple
1 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp sea salt
yeast flakes (optional)

METHOD
1.Wash and dry kale, remove leaves from the stalks, and break them up into large pieces.
2.Preheat oven to 180°C.
3.Process almonds, turmeric, oregano, sea salt, and coconut oil until it becomes a thick, chunky paste.
4.Mix the paste through the leaves and sprinkle it with additional coconut oil, if needed. Also add a teaspoon or two of yeast flakes for a cheesier flavour and additional nutrition.
5.Lay the kale over two oven trays and bake for 15-20 minutes.
6.Be careful not to overcook the kale as it can burn easily.
7. Enjoy! X
