Everyone seems to have their favourite kale chip recipe these days. What bothers me about a lot of the kale chip recipes out there, is that they use the wrong oil and cook the kale at an unnecessary high heat. So my recipe cooks the delicate kale at 300 degrees Fahrenheit and is flavoured with delicious organic, virgin coconut oil and spices.
5 cups raw, curly kale
2 tablespoon organic, virgin coconut oil
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (or 1/8 tsp)
Wash and dry your kale, break the kale up into similar small pieces and add them to a large bowl. Season your kale with the melted coconut oil, salt, pepper, cayenne and garlic powder. Massage the kale until all of the pieces look like they have been fairly seasoned with the yummy spices.
Add the kale to a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper and make sure not to crowd the baking sheet. You want every delicious piece of kale to be crispy!
Bake the kale at 300 degrees Fahrenheit for 15-17 minutes. You do not want your kale to turn brown, the purpose of cooking at such a low heat is to retain as many nutrients as possible.
Voila! Once they are crispy and beautifully green, they are ready.
Cook Outside the Box
Crush the kale chips into homemade popcorn, it's ridiculous
Add some nutritional yeast to the spice mixture in the recipe to give it a "cheesy like" flavor
