With Kale in season right now and available at a lot of farmer’s markets and CSAs, these chips are a tasty way to try it! Kale is a highly nutritious green in the Cabbage family and most kids even enjoy these crispy chips.
According to Wikipedia:
Kale is very high in beta carotene, vitamin K, vitamin C, lutein, zeaxanthin and is reasonably rich in calcium. Kale, as with broccoli and other brassicas contain sulforaphane (particularly when chopped or minced), a chemical believed to have potent anti-cancer properties. Along with other brassica vegetables, kale is also a source of Indole-3-carbinol, a chemical which boosts DNA repair in cells and appears to block the growth of cancer cells.
Kale Chips are, in my opinion, the most kid-friendly way to serve Kale, especially if it is a new veggie at your house.
