Kale Chips

Hai friends today i am coming with new recipe called " Kale Chips".Its an American dish.
Kale is very high in beta carotene, vitamin K, vitamin C, and rich in calcium.
  • Kale can provide you with some special cholesterol-lowering benefits if you will cook it by steaming. The fiber-related components in kale do a better job of binding together with bile acids in your digestive tract when they've been steamed. When this binding process takes place, it's easier for bile acids to be excreted, and the result is a lowering of your cholesterol levels. Raw kale still has cholesterol-lowering ability—just not as much.
  • Kale's risk-lowering benefits for cancer have recently been extended to at least five different types of cancer. These types include cancer of the bladder, breast, colon, ovary, and prostate. Isothiocyanates (ITCs) made from glucosinolates in kale play a primary role in achieving these risk-lowering benefits.

  • Ingredients:

    Kale Leaves-1 bunch
    Olive oil-1 tsp
    Salt to taste
    Parmasene Cheese-2 tsp(optional)


    Take the leaves and cut of the ends.
    Now clean the leaves  well with water and drain the water completely and keep it aside.
    Arrange the baking tray with the aluminium foil.


    Pre heat the oven 350 Degrees
    Take the drained kale leaves and add the salt and cheese .
    Give it toss and place the leaves on the tray.
    Now bake it until it gets krisp or for 20 minutes.
    Now off and serve it with sour cream.
