kale chips – oven baked & dehydrated

kale chipsEven if you don’t like kale, you just might like kale chips.  I don’t really like it raw (I mostly use it in my green smoothies), but I don’t mind the chips.  I have tried making them both in the oven and in the dehydrator.  The process is the same but I think I prefer the oven as it’s quicker and I think they are a bit crisper.  They are super easy and lots of kids (mine are an exception) actually like them too.  Best eaten immediately!

  • 1/2 bunch kale (any variety, the ones pictured are cavalo nero but curly kale is great too)
  • 2Tbsp olive/avocado/coconut oil
  • Salt
  • 1 Tbsp coconut aminos (optional)
  1. cut the stalks out of the leaves and break them into ‘chip-sized’ pieces
  2. Toss in a bowl with oil (& coconut aminos if you want to) – you can rub the leaves with the oil – it does need to coat the leaves but you don’t really want it dripping)
  3. Sprinkle with salt (probably don’t need as much if using the coconut aminos)
  4. OVEN METHOD – place on oven trays lined with baking paper and place in the oven (180C/350F) for about 10 mins but keep a good eye on them as they may only need 6-8.  Remove, eat.
  5. DEHYDRATOR METHOD – place on the shelves of your dehydrator and leave over night – mine needed 8 hours or so.

kale, beet and apple ‘slaw’ with avocado ‘mayo’

kaleslawAre you looking for something to do with that kale you bought on the weekend? Try this kale-slaw.   I didn’t toss the salad in the dressing as the beetroot makes it all turn purple, but it did taste good one it was all mixed through.  This recipe is auto-immune protocol compliant.  If you’re not following an AIP diet, then it would taste great with some nuts tossed through too and/ore with a ‘normal’ or paleo mayo.  Then it would be a bit like a woldorf salad.

For the recipe….
