Kale Chips with Rosemary Sea Salt

Health food has been growing and growing in popularity over the last few years.  We’ve even noticed a cross over into fine dining restaurants such as the use of buckwheat as garnish, a grain originally eaten mainly by Russian peasants which took the health food world by storm as an alternative to oats.   Why not have a go at creating your own healthy alternatives like these kale chips with rosemary and sea salt – a fraction of the price of buying them pre-made and they’re good for you!  Eat them on their own as a snack or use them as a garnish to add a crunch to your dishes.

You will need:

1 bunch (about 6 ounces) kale

1 tbsp. olive oil

1 tbsp. sea salt

1 tbsp. finely chopped rosemary

 

Preheat oven to 180°C. Rinse and dry the kale thoroughly.  Mix the salt and rosemary together.

Remove the stems from the kale and cut into large pieces.  Place the leaf pieces in a bowl and pour in the olive oil.  Make sure the leaves are evenly covered and then season with the salt to taste.  Arrange leaves in a single layer on a large baking sheet

Bake for 8-12 minutes, or until crisp. Place baking sheet on a rack to cool.
