Baked Kale Chips

Have you eaten kale before? This is a vegetable I don't normally serve on the table or eat regularly as it does not readily available in the usual supermarket or even the wet market near my home. Thanks to my mother-in-law as once in a while I will receive some fresh bunch of kale from her whenever she does get hold of some :D 

Kale is one of the most healthiest vegetables among all! They are rich in Vitamins A, C and K. It is believed that consuming this super power food on regular basis can helps to prevent cancer, lowered cholesterol, reduce the risk of heart disease. It can be eaten raw, stir-frying and bake into chips. Let me show you how to make this healthy vegetable into crispy chips!

Bunch of fresh kale

Remove the leaves from the stem, rinse a couple of time to remove dirt if any.  Spin the leaves dry in a salad spinner. The leaves have to be real dry to achieve crispiness. 

Toss the dry leaves with some olive oil and place in a single layer on a baking sheet.

Bake at 180 deg cel for 12 mins until crisp (keep an eye on it to prevent burning as different oven heat varies), toss with some seasoning e.g. salt & paprika and serve!

nom nom tasted so fantastic!

I tried this once but the kale turned a little brown and instead of crispy, it's oily and soggy
