Curly Kale Chips in the Cotswolds

Wednesday, August 22

After another very tough day in the Cotswolds on Monday, going for walks and generally just relaxing, we drove to Cirencester to buy some dinner.

I saw some Kale in the Vegetable section at the Waitrose, and got some as I've been dying to try and make some Kale Chips, after my friend Jubes introduced them to me a few months ago.

2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil
Sea Salt

Put the oven onto 180'c.

Place the Kale in a Baking dish, toss with the Olive Oil and Sprinkle with Sea Salt.

I accidentally bought Onion Sea Salt, but it was delicious.

Put the dish in the oven, and bake for 10 minutes, remove and stir and then replace in the oven for a further 10 minutes.

Serve and Enjoy!

 I was a little too generous on the Oil with the first batch and so had to soak up some of the oil with Paper Towel, but they were still super tasty.

Super tasty and really good for you too according to Tonia Reinhard in her book SuperFoods.

Kale contains more than twice the level of anti oxidants contained in other leafy greens, which are themselves excellent sources.

Kale is low in calories and a good source of Folate, Fiber, Vitamin C and the minerals Manganese, Potassium, Copper and Calcium.

These really were simple to make, and far healthier to Crisps as a snack before dinner!

And now I'm back in London and waiting to hear from the Doctor what the biopsy results on the 2 moles that I had removed on Thursday is...
