Kale. Its like marmite, you either love it or hate it. Or is it? I mean theres kale then theres crispy kale chips!
I think maybe it depends what you do with your kale and one way I personally find it delicious is crisped up in the oven. A little bit of oil and salt and you have this crispy loveliness to put on the side of your mac and cheese or you could just sit on the couch with it in a bowl munching away on it like popcorn. Add nutritional yeast and you have healthy cheesy vegan kale chips!
So you may or may not be aware that I have recently acquired an air fryer which is proving to be a bit of an obsession. It seems to make all veggies taste amazing in minutes with no pre-heating of the oven required AND APPARENTLY IT MAKES THE BEST KALE CHIPS EVER.
Yes I’m shouting! No I’m not exaggerating!
I just crisped up a bowl of kale chips in 4 minutes. I now have a soon to be completely empty bowl because these are seriously delicious. Kale I might add, I bought for 23p for a whole bag because I got to the supermarket at mark down time. You can’t buy a bag of ready made crisps for that. I actually cannot think of anything you can buy with that but right here I have a bowl, well an almost ex bowl of healthy kale chips, more satisfying and tasty than any store made chips AND they are actually good for you.
You can definately make these in your oven BUT I have to say the air fryer makes them 100 times better.
I will be experimenting with more flavours to try them with but right now I give you cheesy kale chips. You’re welcome!
Are you ready to make the best kale chips ever???
KALE CHIPS - Air Fried or Oven Baked
- 1 160g pack of kale
- 1 tbsp oil
- 1 pinch salt
- 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
Remove any stems from the kale and place it into a large bowl.
Add everything else and toss well so it all gets covered nicely.
Tip into your air fryer basket and cook 4 mins on 190 C.
Alternatively pre-heat your oven to around 150, spread the kale out on a baking tray in as even a layer as possible and bake for 5-10 minutes. Keep an eye on it and pull it out as it starts to go brown.
