Salty, crispy, crunchy and low-fat, asian spiced kale chips are the perfect guilt-free summertime snack!
I can’t call myself a healthy foodie without having a recipe for kale chips on my blog. I mean, it’s a right of passage when you’re considered a “low-fat” or “healthy” food blogger. Whoops, must have missed that memo! But I’d rather have this recipe later than never and what better time than summer to enjoy a super low-fat, low-calorie asian spiced kale chips?
My first batch failed MISERABLY. As in the entire kitchen smelled like wet, burnt vegetables and I wanted to hide outside until it went away. The second batch came out a little….floppy. By the third try I was so pissed off I was going to eat them even if they didn’t turn out. Luckily the kitchen god’s were smiling down on me and they turned out PERFECTLY. Crispy, crunchy and oh so zesty. Paired with some spicy sriracha mayo, each chip is like a crispy bite of spicy heaven.
Now, the key to perfectly crispy kale chips is the timing. Too short will leave them limp and sad, too long will leave them burnt (and will make your house smell like a horrible, horrible place). I feel like I’m telling you a Goldilocks style fairy tale here. My perfect baking time was 14 minutes, but some people swear by 10 or 20. So really just keep an eye on them while you bake. And you know the very best thing about these chips? You can eat the whole batch (and two more) and still consume less calories than a handful of regular chips. Hello new favorite snack, it’s so lovely to meet you.
