Kale Chips in Oven
Kale chips have become increasingly popular over the past few years, and are quite easy to find at a large percentage of grocery stores these days. And while most kale chips you’ll find on the shelf have a good chance of being healthier for you than potato chips, many of these brands produce products that are highly processed, full of unhealthy oils, and a long list of less than optimal ingredients. This is why when possible, we opt to make ours from home!
While homemade kale chips may seem like an unnecessary hassle, they’re actually incredibly easy to cook up! Let’s take a closer look at what exactly goes into this Kale Chips in Oven recipe.
How to Make Kale Chips
Sometimes the best recipes come with the shortest ingredient lists. This Kale Chips in Oven recipe most definitely fits that description! With only 3 easy ingredients, these Kale Chips are just about as easy as it gets!
Kale is one of the most nutrient-dense plants. It’s packed with fiber, vitamin C, vitamin A and vitmamin K. It’s also an excellent resource of magnesium and at least 45 different polyphenols. So not only is it a highly nutritious veggie, it’s also versatile, and delicious!
Tossed in a little bit of healthy oil and seasoned to taste, kale makes a healthy and satisfying snack that will make you forget all about greasy potato chips. Click here to read more about the benefits of kale.
Pressed from avocadoes, this smooth, buttery and mellow oil is more than 50% monounsaturated (click here to read about the benefits of monounsaturated fats). It has a much higher smoke point than olive oil, so it is a good alternative to olive oil for recipes using high heat (avocado’s smoke point is about 510 degrees compared to olive oil’s 350-400 degrees.) It really is an incredible choice for a healthy oil, and offers a mild flavor that doesn’t overpower your recipes.
Himalayan Pink Salt
While you are welcome to use whatever salt you please, I prefer Himalayan pink salt or sea salt. The great part about these Kale Chips is that while salt is the only flavoring you need for a savory and delicious taste, you can easily modify this recipe to include whatever spices you prefer. Add additional spices to taste!
