The Kale Chips w/ Creamy Avocado Aioli

by Anda Mtshemla

The kid in me is always looking for fun ways to enjoy vegetables so when I found out that these curly, leafy greens could be enjoyed as chips, I immediately counted myself in.Once baked, their delicate, crispy texture rivals every fried chip I’ve come across.

I had them with a quick avocado aioli drizzled over top and it came out so light and creamy, it didn’t weigh down the delicate crisps.

PREP TIME: 10mins  COOK TIME: 10-12mins  MAKES: 2 servings

You will need:

4-6 leaves of kale

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp pepper

For the aioli:

1 avocado

1 clove of garlic, crushed

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 tablespoon salt

3 tablespoons lemon juice

Method:

Pre-heat your oven to 180°C/356°F

Wash the kale leaves and gently separate them from the stalks

Pat the leaves dry with a clean kitchen towel

In a large bowl, add the olive oil to the kale and mix until leaves are well coated

Add the salt and pepper and mix until all the kale has been coated

Spread the seasoned kale onto a baking tray in a single layer

Place in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes

While that bakes…

Scoop the avocado into a food processor then add the lemon juice, salt and garlic

Blend until mixture is smooth

Add the olive oil and blend until light, and creamy

Generously spoon mixture over chips and serve
