Spicy Kale Chips [Vegan]Posted: May 28, 2011
Somewhere in the northern forests of British Columbia there lives a special boy who LOVES snacking on the good old classic potato chip and I want to impress him greatly. But I like to make delicious food that is also healthy. So to satisfy his love for chips and to impress him with my culinary skills I came up with this recipe that provides a healthy alternative to his favourite snack. This one’s for you special boy.
Here’s how to impress your special boy (or girl) with some delicious spicy kale chips:
1 bunch of kale (I used the curly variety)
1-2 tbsp vegetable oil (I used avocado oil)
1 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp red chili flakes (or more if you like it HOT)
1. Preheat oven to 350F. Rinse and chop or rip kale into larger than bite size pieces (they will shrink big time).
2. Toss all ingredients in a baking dish.Bake chips for 15-20 minutes or until crispy. *Note: The soy sauce adds moisture so you may need to bake for longer than conventional kale chips (see commentary below).
*The soy sauce and chili flakes in this recipe can be replaced with other ingredients to achieve different flavours according to preference. Just plain sea salt works beautifully. Chili powder, garlic powder, and curry powder are all worth experimenting with.
