Most potato chips on the market are fatty, greasy, and overly processed. But, kale chips are a healthy alternative. 

Kale is a superfood packed with lots of vitamins and minerals. These include Vitamin A, Folate, a B vitamin, calcium, phosphorus, and zinc. 

What is also nice about kale chips is that they are easy and quick to make.

READ: Five ways to add flavour to your chips 


- Remove the stem from the kale leaves.

- Tear the leaves into proportional sizes (cut them into a size bigger than the size of the chips you want because they will shrink when you cook).

- Dry the leaves off. You can use a salad spinner if you have one. 

- Cover the leaves with oil

- Add salt

- Add lemon

- Add nutritional yeast to make them crispy and cheesy

- Gently massage the leaves and ensure all the leaves are thoroughly covered with all the ingredients. 

- Place the greased leaves on a non-stick baking tray. 

- Bake at 180 degrees Celsius until they are crispy. This can take up to 45 minutes.
