So, I know I posted about Kale Chips once before, but this is an alternative recipe for making them that is faster and easier. Kale is so very good for you so make these for a snack or a side to go with your lunch.
Kale is very high in beta carotene, vitamin K, vitamin C, lutein, zeaxanthin, and reasonably rich in calcium. Kale, as with broccoli and other brassicas, contains sulforaphane (particularly when chopped or minced), a chemical with potent anti-cancer properties. Boiling decreases the level of sulforaphane; however, steaming, microwaving, or stir frying do not result in significant loss. Along with other brassica vegetables, kale is also a source of indole-3-carbinol, a chemical which boosts DNA repair in cells and appears to block the growth of cancer cells. Kale is also a good source of carotenoids. (courtesy of wikipedia)
Super Easy Kale Chips
1 Bunch Kale
1/4 tsp Safflower Oil
Seasonings of your choice
*Clean Kale first, then tear into medium sized pieces.
*Place parchment paper on a microwave safe plate.
*Put kale into a bowl and drizzle with oil. Rub oil into leaves.
*Line kale on top. It is ok if it overlaps, but don’t pile up.
*Season with whatever you like. I used black pepper, garlic, and nutritional yeast.
*Microwave for 4-5 minutes depending on your microwave.
