Kale is another wonderful green vegetable, up there with broccoli, chard and spinach. For a green vegetable, Kale has a tremendous amount of fibre, keeping you fuller for longer, and has lots of Vitamin A, vitamin K, manganese and calcium. So eat up!
I have to admit not knowing what to do with Kale other than making crisps because I never get that far. In our house we love these Kale crisps so much that we can hardly wait to get these in and out of the oven. They are super easy and quick to do, here’s how…
Preheat your oven to around 160 degrees C.
Use a good handful of Kale per person. Wash the Kale leaves and then place on a baking tray lined with parchment paper or foil, spreading them out. Drizzle some olive oil over, then squeeze some lemon juice and sprinkle some sea salt. Use your hands to gently rub the oil, lemon and salt into the leaves. Alternatively, you can use balsamic vinegar instead of lemon juice, also very nice!
Place the tray in the oven for around 10 -14 minutes, turn them if you remember half way though to get it crispy all around and keep checking on them to make sure they don’t burn. After about 14 minutes they should be ready, crispy and delicious.
Even Banjo likes these, he only gets one or two little leaves and I try to take any salt off, but unlike other greens he doesn’t spit these out. Greyhounds are so funny!
