Baked kale chips

Baked kale chips are a great way to get that crunchy chip mouthfeel while with heaps of B6, C, A, K, folate, copper and manganese (which you’re not going to get from a potato chip).  

Rather than starch from potato or corn mixed with omega six seed oils, these “chips” use kale, fat from olive or coconut oil and flavour from curry powder and salt, to provide a much healthier alternative.
