Quick and Easy Kale Chips

Quick and Easy Kale Chips

Are you anything like me? You go to the supermarket and buy a whole bunch of healthy greens with the intention of making some sort of green shake or a delicious salad and when you get home… well when you get home, you toss the kale/ swiss chard/ arugula etc etc in the crisper and only remember it when a weird smell starts coming from the bottom of the fridge?

Well, I’m glad I’m not alone! I was about to go back down that route once more when I remembered that I did have a recently purchased and now neglected air fryer that could make some crunchy, salty kale chips in no time at all.

Wash and dry those leaves
Tear into bite sized pieces. Get your oil and salt
Drizzle on the oil and make sure each piece is well coated
Add some flaky sea salt
Air fry them!
So crunchy and delicious!

Here’s the recipe:
