Who doesn't love a big bowl of popcorn? Only thing is that I suck in making it! 9 out of 10 times they get burned, or I'll loose a piece of my tooth while eating it.. not so charming right?! My sporty friend S. and I were looking for a nice healthy snack after our Boot Camp training (uhuh.. shoulder tab please ) to give our body an extra energy boost! We decided to visit our old friend Albert and I stopped when I saw a big bag of pre-chopped Kale, normally when I make kale chips I buy it in 1 whole piece so you have big crispy leaves, but they don't sell these at Albert, so I thought.. why not make a big bowl of mini Kale Crisps! and so I did..scroll down if if you want to make this too! It's really the most easiest and healthiest snack on earth! oke maybe I'm a bit exaggerating but..you know what I mean.
ingredients you'll need for a big bowl of Green Popcorn:
- a big bag of pre-chopped kale
- 7 spoons of nutritional yeast (you can buy this in any organic store, I buy mine at Eko Plaza)
- some salt
- some garlic powder
- 1 spoon of olive oil
- baking paper
Preheat your oven on 220 Celcius.
Put all the kale into a BIG bowl, put some olive oil in, and use your hands to get the oil nice evenly on the kale, you'll notice if you use your hands that 1 spoon of oil is really more then enough to get all the kale covered! Next step is to sprinkle some salt, garlic powder and the nutritional yeast over the kale and this time use a big spoon to get every piece of kale covered with the spices! spread the kale evenly over the bakingtray. make sure that there's still some air in between, otherwise the kale won't be crispy! Put it in the oven for something like 15 minutes and your done! (just check it once in a while that it won't turn into 'BlackCorn' ) As it's quite a lot, you probably can't make it all at once in the oven. but you can use the bakingpaper over and over for this!
Feel free to leave me a comment if you tried this out! I'm very curious what you think of this 'green popcorn'.
