You see a bag of kale chips at the store and you’re just HANKERIN’, I repeat…HANKER-ING for some of those crispy morsels. With so many flavours and brands, the possibilities seem endless. There’s just one thing holding you back; it’s 7.99! Plus tax…that’s 8.90! Yes, I can do math.
So there you are. Defeated. You only want to be like those health conscious people you see on TV. Munching on a bag of kale chips while responding to emails in their cozy home office, but you just can’t bring yourself to spend almost 9$ on 1 minute of snack. At Jenn and Jac Snack, we take our snacking very seriously, and to us…1 minute of crumbly kale chips is not worth 9$…it’s a snack travesty. It’s a snavesty.™
But life doesn’t have to be this way! You can make your own kale chips at home! Yes…you can, and they’re gonna be fresh from the oven, toasted to perfection and dressed in whatever crazy flavours you desire. Throw them in your bag and take them out on the town! Maybe to a party…or a picnic…or a bathroom stall so you can eat your damn kale chips in silence!
This particular flavour is inspired by Thai Peanut Soup. It’s a little spicy and the peanut butter adds well…a nuttiness that make these oh so yummy.
What you will need:
1/4 cup + 1 tsp natural smooth peanut butter
1/2 red pepper
1/2 red chile pepper
1 clove garlic
2 1/2 tbsp tamari or soy sauce
Juice of 1/2 a lime
Sea salt to taste
1 tbsp fresh ginger
1 head of dino kale (or regular kale, but dino kale is cooler rawr)
Here’s the easy part:
Combine everything, except the kale in a food processor and blend until smooth. De-stem the kale and cut into bite sized pieces. Toss in the dressing and then arrange on a parchment lined baking sheet (we needed 3) Bake at 250F for 1/2 hour or until crisp. EAT!
