Make yourself happy with kale! Really though. I promise you that you’ll feel better after eating this snack than you would after a bowl of ice cream and a bag of chips… And if you really taste the chips, they are just as tasty. Kale is not only hot in cities like New York, it’s also full of vitamin K, vitamin A and vitamin C. The kale leaf is also particularly high in minerals, including potassium, calcium, copper, iron and magnesium. And that’s not all: kale’s high fiber content is great for your digestion and will help to stabilize your blood sugar.
In New York you can get this snack on every street corner, so as a kale country, it’s our duty not to be left behind here. You can buy these healthy chips in specialty stores, but it’s much more fun (and very easy) to make them yourself. I’ll eat a whole bowl of these, guilt free, while watching a good movie.
300 g kale leaves
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp tamari
1 tsp sesame seeds
Preheat the oven to 180°C. Remove the hard stalks from the kale leaves. Wash the leaves and allow them to dry. Then rip the leaves into large pieces and put them in a bowl. Add the oil, soya sauce and some sesame seeds. The leaves should glisten a bit, but be sure not to use too much oil. Taste and adjust the seasoning (soy sauce) if necessary. Toss the leaves thoroughly and lay them on a baking sheet. Bake the leaves for between 6 and 12 minutes, depending on your oven. Keep your eye on them and take them out of the oven when they turn nice and crispy. Enjoy!
