Salt & Vinegar Kale Chips

by Alice Zaslavsky, from In Praise of Veg

I need to start this post with a disclaimer: I do not like kale.

In fact, I’m very late to the kale party but recently have become *obsessed* with crispy kale chips. A favourite cafe in Preston we were dining at served crispy kale chips with my breakfast and I couldn’t get enough. I had to go back the following week to order the dish again just to quell my craving.

Fortunately my trusty, modern kitchen companion ‘In Praise of Veg’ has a recipe for Salt and Vinegar Kale Chips. And, I’m baking these bad boys like I’m a fitness junkie measuring my calorie intake, rather than a 50 year-old whose greatest consideration for calories is “no calorie is a bad calorie” (unless it’s animal derived, of course – but that’s a whole other conversation). All you need is the kale, 5 easy ingredients you’re likely to have in your cupboard and within 15 minutes you’ll been snacking on these little crispy leaves.

Am low-ley obsessed with Kale Chips after discovering their crispy delightfulness just a few weeks ago.

This recipe is so easy to make and is the ultimate snack for lovers of kale. You’ll most likely even have the kale-deniers asking for some, as these little leaves are more like chips than a veg disguised as a tasty snack!
