Spiced Kale Chips

Hello :) Most of the food I eat at the moment, is bought from farmers markets. I really enjoy buying local produce and being able to talk to the growers and stallholders. I love working at the EQ markets on Wednesday and happily spend my weekend mornings at markets relaxing in the sun with a chai...

I tend to buy a bunch or two of kale almost every week. Fabulous for soups, omelettes and also for these nutritious bites.

Spiced Kale Chips!

1 small bunch of kale 

1 tablespoon of macadamia oil
pinch of himalayan crystal salt
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon paprika 

I used macadamia oil because it has a high smoke point, which is good for baking with and has a lovely subtle taste. I bought the himalayan salt a few days ago, and its just so salty! And packed with minerals too, I enjoy adding it to my meals. 

1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius 
2. Tear the leaves off the kale bunch. Wash & dry the leaves throughly
3. Mix other ingredients together in a small bowl and brush the mixture on the kale leaves
4. Bake for about 10-12 minutes. Keep checking after 10 minutes (they burn easily) and take them out when the edges are crisp and slightly brown

I realise these spiced kale chips aren't everyones cup of tea, but I find them to be a great in the afternoon for an energy lift! Oh and they're yummy and crunchy too :)
