This powerhouse of a vegetable has become a popular crunchy snack at health food shops and vegetarian restaurants.
Now available in a variety of flavours, kale chips are a treat that you can feel good about. A 1-cup serving of kale contains almost double the amount of vitamin A you need in a day, 88 percent of your daily vitamin C, plus a goodly amount of maganese and fibre. When tossed with a touch of olive oil, salt and chili flakes, then roasted, kale tastes just like earthy, airy potato chips.
