Crave a salty and crispy snack at 3 PM? Friends about to drop by and need a lightning speed appetizer to munch on? Homemade kale chips made in the microwave are ready to devour in only 5 minutes! Get creative with the spices for fun flavored chips, or have your friends or kids choose their own spices. Snacking can be healthy, fast, easy, and yummy.
What (your ingredients):
2 stalks of kale
1 teaspoon avocado oil or olive oil
Pinch of salt
How (your directions):
Tear curly kale into large pieces and discard the stalk.
Massage with oil to make sure kale pieces are thoroughly coated. Then sprinkle with salt.
Tip: You could be adventurous and add a dash of your favorite seasonings-garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, cayenne, etc.
Distribute kale pieces onto plate, allowing a small amount of room between each piece.
Microwave 3 minutes. After 3 minutes, if the kale is not a “chip” yet, continue to microwave, checking every 1 minute. My chips took a total of 5 minutes to create a crispy chip.
Why (the science): I hardly need to mention the health benefits of kale, since it has been a trending vegetable for a few years now! But now enjoy kale as a crispy chip that only takes 5 minutes and is flavored to your liking.
