Kale chips are becoming a big hit and what is there not to love about them: they are crunchy, full of flavour, super healthy and make a perfect snack. Here's my version.

You need:
  • large bunch of kale 
  • approx. 2 cups of cashew nuts
  • approx. 1 cup of water
  • salt

Blend cashew nuts and water in a blender until smooth. Add water little by little so the nut paste won't get too runny. Wash kale, remove stems and tear into smaller pieces.
Pour cashew paste in a bowl with kale and mix well. Place the leaves on oven trays. Bake in the lowest heat setting of your oven, ideally in 45C degrees, for about 4-5 hours until they are completely dry and crispy. Sprinkle with salt and enjoy.

Sometimes I've finished a whole batch before chips have even cooled off.

  1. Sounds good! Kale is also my favourite, because it's so super healthy. So sad, you don't get it every where here. I have to try these chips, I think they suit better this way than frying in pan. Tried this last Sunday, and didn't turn out that well. The inner part (what is it called..?) of it is so hard, that it surely didn't soften :) So have to try something else (and cut the inner thing out, ehh).

    How many kids you have Heidi? Would nice to know something more of you, if you're ok with that :)

  2. Hi Katariinax, make sure you remove the stems (that's the hard inner part) and just use the leafy greens when using kale. The stems are very bitter and don't taste good. Last summer when I was in Finland I found kale in Prisma-market ;-) Hopefully they have it all year round and not just summer time.

    So far I let Minna share more of personal posts ;-)
