Kale Chips… salty, crispy and great with a beer.

IMG_9653[1] It’s Summer here in Australia. A cold beer and a salty snack is the perfect way to toast the sunset and relax after a blistering hot day.

Kale chips are easy to make, don’t require deep-frying and are ridiculously moreish… and even if you are not so fond of this self-righteous super-food, I dare you not to like this crunchy little bar snack and empty the entire bowl!

IMG_9639[1] Start with one bunch of kale.

IMG_9643[1] Pull apart the leaves.

IMG_9646[1] Tear off green leafy bits from woody stem. Rip the leaves into small chunks.

IMG_9648[1] Drizzle over 1 tablespoon of olive oil.

IMG_9649[1] Sprinkle over 1 tablespoon salt flakes, 1 tablespoon of soy sauce and a teaspoon of chili flakes.

IMG_9651[1] Massage through toppings until leaves are completely coated.

IMG_9652[1] Place on baking sheet and put into 160 c oven (320 f).

IMG_9661[1] Chips will take around 20-30 minutes. Each oven is different, so just keep checking till all kale is dry. Turn your oven down if kale starts to go brown.

As you can see the kale shrinks a lot so don’t be scared to make lots and use the whole bunch!

IMG_9658[1]Serve with an icy cold beer and feel slightly good about getting to eat your greens in such a deliciously naughty way! Invent your own toppings. Let me know what delicious variations you come up with.

Thanks for reading and cheers during this festive season, Anna x

  1. These are a favourite in our house ….. With home grown kale of course!


    1. Brilliant that you grow your own Doris. After writing this post I’ve discovered that many of you have vegetable gardens and grow your own kale. Puts my pathetic rooftop effort to shame! x
