Say goodbye to potato and hello to kale with this delicious nutritious alternative.

Kale is low in calories, high in fiber, iron, anti oxidants and has zero fat.  

Chilli-Lime Kale Chips (Serves: 2 to 4)

Ingredients: 1 head of green curly kale (or 15-20 kale leaves) Juice of 2 limes 2 Tbsp olive oil 1/2 cup cashews, ground to a powder 1-2 Tsp chilli powder (or chilli paste) 1 Tbs salt 2 cloves crushed garlic (optional)

Method: 1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celcius. 2. Rinse kale leaves and shake dry. Tear leaves into chip-sized pieces or leave whole if small. 3. In a large bowl, combine kale with all other ingredients. 4. Mix with your hands until kale looks wet and seasoning is evenly distributed. 5. On two large cookie sheets, spread out kale leaves the best you can so they are flat and not overlapping. 6. Bake for about 8 minutes. Flip and move chips around to cook evenly. Bake for another 8 minutes or so. 7. When they are done they should be just crispy. Once crisp they tend to burn quickly so check on them every minute or so towards the end!

Enjoy!
