Kale chips

Simple Vegan Meal Plan

You will need:

Preheat oven to 107c/225f. Wash kale leaves and pat dry, or dry in a salad spinner. Make sure any rough stalks are removed (VEGANUARY TIP – you can keep the stalks in the freezer for green smoothies!)

Tear the kale into pieces. In a bowl, toss in olive oil and add seasoning. Make sure all is spread evenly. Add to a lined baking tray – you may need two for this! Place in the over to crisp up for around 25 minutes.

During this time, make sure to switch the trays around half way through. The kale on the outside will crisp faster so a quick swap around of the middle kale to the outside may be necessary.

Once crisp, remove from the oven. It is so good fresh! Can be eaten up to 3 days after. Store in a clean jar once cooled.
