Kale Chips Motherhood University

 

So you *need* a salty, crunchy snack? Before you reach for the cellophane housed, chemically laden junk, consider a healthy alternative. Kale Chips are nutritionally dense and super easy to make.

Ingredients

1 bunch of kale

either 1 Tbsp olive oil OR 1/4 veggie stock

your favorite spices……

I’m rockin: onion powder (I need a 12 step program), sea salt and nutritional yeast

Directions

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
  • Thoroughly wash and dry the kale
  • De-stem by holding the stem with one hand and dragging the other hand down the stem, raking off the leafy part

  • Break into bite size pieces (keep in mind it will shrink significantly) 
  • Either massage with oil (a tablespoon goes a long way) or toss in veggie stock (try both and see which you prefer)

  • Spread out on a cookie sheet and season generously
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes depending on how crispy you like it – some pieces will be less or more cooked than others and if you’re seeking more consistency, stir midway through the baking time

And there you have it – a healthy salty snack. What is your favorite salty snack?

Oil Free Hummus

Oil Free Hummus Regina Knabe

Skip the oils and additives of store bought hummus and make it yourself. It’s easier than you think, here’s how…

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups cooked chick peas (one 16 oz can drain and rinsed)

1/4 cup lemon juice

1/4 cup water

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon cumin

1/2 salt (or more to taste)

1/4 cup tahini

Directions

Place everything except the tahini in the blender and blend until smooth. I’m using a vitamix so it’s super fast. Once smooth, add the tahini to make it extra creamy. Serve with your favorite fresh vegetables or use as a condiment on sandwiches and wraps.
