Kale Chips Recipe

Hello everyone :) I am on a kale kick lately. Kale is oftened labeled "queen of greens" as its bursting with nutrition : Kale is low in calorie, has zero fat and is high in fiber Kale is high in iron Kale is a a anti inflammatory Kale is high in vitamins A,K and Kale is jam packed with anti oxidants You can read more about the health benefits of kale here : http://www.webmd.com/food-recipes/features/the-truth-about-kale Kale is part of the Cruciferous vegetable family, so depending on how sensitive your stomach is you may prefer your kale slightly cooked vs raw. Some of my favorite ways to eat kale are Sautéed Added to smoothies Steamed Kale chips In salads,soups, casseroles,stews Use the leaves as "bread" to make a sandwich I thought I would share my current favorite way to enjoy kale image Kale chips are extremely easy to make, even if you don't have a dehydrator :) You will need : - 1 bunch of kale, stems removed and washed - 1 tablespoon of olive oil or coconut oil (I prefer coconut oil as it can withstand higher heat) - Sea salt or seasoning of choice. I prefer Mrs. Dash salt free chipotle seasoning or nutritional yeast for a punch of protein and cheesy flavour. Nutritional yeast is a great cheese substitute. Nutritional yeast is also the only reliable food source of vitamin B12, for vegans this is the vitamin often lacked the most. I purchase mine at bulk barn, but most health food stores sell it. I add mine to my Kale chips, popcorn, pasta, gluten free garlic bread, make "cheese" sauce"' the options are endless. image image image Directions : - Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (150 degrees C) - Line cookie sheet with parchment paper - In a bowl combine bite sized pieces of kale, oil, seasonings and massage until well combined. - Bake 10-15 minutes until crispy but not burnt. image After just 15 minutes you will have a big bowl of "chips" to eat , and get this, they are HEALTHY! image I hope you enjoy them as much as I do :) Until next time, YOLANDE :)
