13 Jun

Kale chips became such a popular snack these days. Or maybe just in NYC? I don’t know. But you should know that they are incredibly quick and easy to make at home. Here is how:

 

 

4 cups of kale (the leafy parts, so cut off the stems)

2,5 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon fresh orange zest

1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

1/8 teaspoon ground cumin (optional)

pinch of salt

 

Preheat your oven to 350 °F. Prepare your tray with parchment paper or aluminum foil on it.

Cut off the stems of the kale and rip apart in order to make big chunks of the leaves and wash them. Make sure they are completely dry. That way your chips will be crunchy.

In a small bowl combine the rest of the ingredients and toss it in the kale. Coat every single chunk with the olive oil mixture.

You have to put them as a single layer on the tray. This means it is going to be a few batches you keep putting in the oven and taking out. Bake your first single layer kale batch for 8 minutes. If they’re not crunchy you can put them back in the oven for another minute but you need be careful because they get burnt so easily. Repeat it till you’re done with all of them.

Oat Crackers

8 Dec

These are super easy crackers with only 3 ingredients and perfect to eat with hummus. At least that what I’ve been eating them with. It is also great with cheese or jams.

Ingredients

1 cup old fashioned oats

1 tablespoon earth balance (you can use real butter if you want)

5 tablespoons water

Preheat your oven to 350°F. Prepare a baking tray with aluminum foil on it.

Heat up the water and butter until butter is all melted. Bring to a boil. Pour it over the oats and mix into a moist dough. You can add some salt at this point if you would like. Turn the dough onto a surface and knead into a ball. Roll the dough out to about a 10 inch round.

Cut the round into 8 sections, ease them apart with your knife and bake for 25 minutes. Let it cool and enjoy!
