Salted Kale Chips

Salted Kale Chips

I made two batches last night. One batch was eaten as a healthy snack.  For the second batch I added some beautiful organic green cauliflower, some chili and some garlic, and it made a great textured meal accompaniment to go with my minced lamb and aubergines.

So here is how you make Kale Chips.

  1. Simply take some organic kale.
  2. Wash and chop into bite size chunks.
  3. Add to a roasting tray, and sprinkle with salt, a lashing of olive oil then choose from a combo of different spices. E.g Paprika & Cayenne Pepper, chili and garlic, lemon, cinnamon- any spice that takes your fancy.
  4. Then bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes at 180 degrees.
Hey presto!!

Great tasting food has always been my passion. Obsessed with cookbooks from a young ages I have enjoyed exploring the world of food, recipe by recipe. 2004, aged 20, I was reading Law at University; money was tight, and meals were often made up of vegetables and starchy carbohydrates, washed down with ample alcoholic beverages of choice. Always made from scratch, taste championed calorie content; many delicious creamy pastas and carb-loaded rice and pitta dishes were consumed.Being in my early twenties, I was quite capable of getting away with my not exactly nutritious diet, however following Law School I noticed that I’d put on a few pounds. Being a food lover, I became extremely interested in the power of food; its nutritional value, its healing, health benefits. I read pages and pages of nutritional information; I followed fitness blogs, and read health cookbooks. I then made the decision to turn paleo; I really tightened up my diet and saw amazing result. Most importantly however, eating the right food made me feel great. For the first time, I did not feel bloated, I felt energized, health issues cleared up. My skin was the best ever, I slept well at night. The Paleo Diet involves eating mainly vegetables and protein, with small amounts of fruit, nuts and seeds. Eating Paleo is in essence eating the foods your body was designed to eat. The Paleo Diet mimics the diet that our hunter-gather ancestors ate; pre-agricultural revolution. My love of paleo, has brought me to my new found hobby; CrossFit and a combination of exercise and diet are an unbeatable solution. Paleo Polly is a blog dedicated to my journey. Although I am not a qualified nutritionist, my personal journey has enabled me to make great changes to my life and to my well-being. I would like to share my journey, and my life experiences and guide and assist anyone wanting to make a positive change.

    I have been making these a lot lately, as a snack or to have in a salad or as a vegetable with dinner. They are delicious and so much easier to make than expected! (I recently found them in a health shop a lot more expensive than making at home!)

    Thank you so much for your blog and recipes. I am really looking forward to trying more of them. The photos are great alongside your blog as they make the dishes look so tasty!!
