Have you ever had Kale? No I don’t mean the stuff you find on the supermarket shelf in a can, right next to the spinach. I mean fresh, raw kale that you find in the fresh fruits and vegetable aisle. Huge difference.
First of all, what is kale? Kale is a member of the cabbage family that is packed with nutrition.
I love kale! It is one of my favorite green vegetables and a total staple in my kitchen.
You say your kids won’t eat kale? I say I have a recipe for kale that will keep them coming back for more.
What is this magical recipe? Kale Chips!
They may not be potato chips, but they’re a good healthy replacement. These crispy and nutrition-packed chips are sure to be gobbled up quickly.
- One bunch kale cut in bite sized pieces
- Olive oil
- Salt and pepper
How to Make It:
- Preheat your oven to 325 F.
- Wash the kale thoroughly and rip it up into bite sized pieces, discarding the stems.
Here’s a run down of what just one serving of kale chips have to offer nutritionally speaking:
- 50 calories
- 10 grams of carbohydrates
- 2 grams of dietary fiber
- 3 grams of protein
- 1 gram of fat, of which just 0.1 is saturated
- no cholesterol
- 2 milligrams of potassium
- 769 micromilligrams of vitamin A
and trace amounts of the following:
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin K
You don’t have to tell the kids that they are full of vitamins, just let them think they’re good! 😉
I like to heat my oven to only 250 or 275 degrees at the highest and I have better success with them not burning. 275 degrees is even high for me. It takes longer but I like my chips green. I love to add garlic powder and nutritional yeast also! They are yummy for breakfast dinner and supper and snacking!! YUM Thank you Mary for sharing!!
