Kale Crisps, healthy Nibbling Fun quickly made from the Oven

The recipe for Kale Crisps is presented in this article.

You want to have fun nibbling that is homemade, unusual and healthy?

Then I have the right recipe for you: Crisps made from kale leaves are a great crispy alternative and a change from potato crisps in a bag. 

Unbelievable but true: Even the green crisps have addictive potential! Try it out and let yourself be surprised by the convincingly fantastic taste.

I wish you a lot of fun making the crisps and nibbling!

1. Kale, the green Palm from the North of Germany

Kale in the field

It doesn’t get any better than this: Kale is on the field in the north of Germany from autumn through winter to spring. Harvesting takes place as required, so that markets, supermarkets and discounters are always supplied fresh.

Because of the plant’s beautiful growth, one also speaks of the palm tree of Northern Germany and this rightly appreciates this vegetable!

Kale also has great properties: It is the vegetable with the highest content of beta-carotene and vitamin C. In addition, kale contains mustard oils and lots of vitamin K.

2. Simply prepare Kale Crisps in the Oven

Kale crisps fresh from the oven, a natural and healthy crunchy treat

The idea of producing crisps from kale has already been industrially implemented in some countries such as the USA. Nevertheless, there is nothing like “homemade”!

For a healthy snack you don’t need much: 

  • Fresh kale
  • Vegetable oil
  • Salt, pepper
  • Oven
  • Baking tray
  • Baking paper

You can certainly add some chili to your chips. Or you can sprinkle some grated parmesan cheese on the cabbage before baking.

A fresh yoghurt dip with turmeric and sesame rounds off the nibbling pleasure

I produce a fresh dip for my cabbage crisps consisting of:

  • Yoghurt
  • Turmeric
  • Salt, pepper
  • Agave syrup
  • Sesame seeds
