  Kate's Krunchy Kale Chips  




These kale chips are REALLY good. And they only take 10 minutes to cook. Eat as a snack,  or use to add a little crispy crunch to stews, soups and dips. They're totally yummy dipped into the yolk of a soft boiled egg too! 


When to eat them?


Snack on these kale chips as a healthy alternative to crisps, after school or to munch on while relaxing in front of the television.



Try this basic recipe with other veggies too - sweet potato, parsnips and beetroot all work brilliantly. The secret is in the slicing (keep it very thin using a potato peeler or mandolin) and the low oven temperature.



Cook in school?


Your pupils will absolutely love making these. Try a colourful medley of kale, sweet potato, parsnip, golden and red beetroot chips - a very effective  and fun way to demonstrate the benefits of a rainbow diet and the 'five-a-day'.
