Whip it Up Wednesday: Sriracha Kale Chips

Posted by: 
MMMM, Good!

So I love to snack! If you put me in a room full of snacks, I will have the urge to over indulge. I do not have the self control to not nibble!

There! I said it!

If you've read any of my blogs you know I love to cook with my kids! I love giving them the experience of creating something, measuring ingredients, feeling joy over the final product, as well as exposure to the kitchen.  This recipe is so fast and the clean up is easy!  It is the perfect recipe for those days when your kids are nagging you from boredom and it will even provide a healthy snack for those of us with no self control at the family gathering.

I love KALE! I have been eating it non-stop at least once a day: kale smoothie, kale stir fry, kale salad, kale juice, and now kale chips.... I was gonna buy a bag of kale chips at Whole Foods the other day and it was $8 for a small bag!  Ouch--my wallet!

To save my wallet, I decided to make my own!

So here you go, a cheap and healthy alternative to modern-day Lays!

You will need:
1 Bunch of Kale
Juice of Half  Lime
2 TBL Olive Oil
1 TBL Sriracha
1 Tsp Soy Sauce
1 Tsp Fish Sauce

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Mix all ingredients together except kale.  Let ingredients rest while you wash and dry kale thoroughly, then tear into bite-sized pieces.  Pour sauce over kale pieces and make sure every piece is coated.  Arrange kale on a single layer on a cookie sheet, not overlapping.  Bake about 10-12 minutes until crispy. Some pieces may need more or less time depending on size.  Also, if you are gluten free, try using Tamarind.

Happy Snacking!
