These kale chips are the perfect appetizer served with a glass of chilled rosé or white wine. They are very tasty and healthy at once.
As kale is one of our favorite vegetables, we would like to show you how easy it is to prepare a fine snack made out of it. The recipe is very simple, the outcome is delicious and takes only a couple of minutes to prepare. Our oriental flavoured kale chips are the perfect alternative to plain potato chips!
During the last couple of years, kale has become very popular in Switzerland due to its healthy ingredients. Kale contains a lot vitamin C, is rich in fibre, iron and proteins but contains almost no calories. Even omega-3 fatty acids may be found in these vegetables. So this year, we finally planted our own kale in the garden – and it’s growing so fast that we really need to develop some recipes to use all of it. Today, the leaves are still young and tender – which is the perfect moment to prepare the present snack.
In our opinion, kale either needs to be eaten raw or just quickly sautéed/fried respectively put into the oven for a couple of minutes. Please be aware that if you heat it too long, its taste changes.
- 4 kale leaves
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 1/4 tsp nigella (black cumin)
- 1/4 tsp cardamon
- 1/4 tsp coriander
- 1 small dried chili
Preheat the oven to 120 degrees. Cover an oven tray with baking paper. Cut the Kale into pieces with the size of potato chips. Then carefully wash the leaves and dry them well, otherwise the heating process will take longer. Put the ground nigella, cardamon and coriander into a pan and roast it for a short time, then add the salt, the dried crumbled chili and the olive oil. Mingle everything well and spread it over the kale leaves. Carefully massage the oil and the spices into the leaves, put them on an oven tray and bake them for about 25 minutes until crispy. Let the finished kale chips cool down for a bit and voilà, you are ready to serve.
