RECIPE :: Beet and Kale Chips – Vegan, Gluten Free, Dairy Free

Dec 4, 2016Recipes

This recipe is for all of you savoury people out there, who prefer a salty holiday food gift over a sweet one. As apart of my segment on Daytime York Region on Rogers TV, I made 3 foodie gift ideas for the people in your life. With the Christmas colours of red from the beets and green from the kale, this holiday snack is a great alternative to potato chips!
Also, vegan lifestyle bloggers at thrivecuisine.com have a great comprehensive resource on the health benefits of kale here.

Beet and Kale Chips – Vegan, Gluten Free, Dairy Free

 

Prep Time: 15 mins | Cook Time: 20 mins | Total Time: 35 mins

Ingredients
3 beets, wash and scrubbed
1 bunch kale, stems removed and teared into pieces
3 Tbsp olive oil                                                    
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
2 tsp chopped rosemary

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 F degrees and cover 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Using a mandolin or sharp knife, cut the beet into very thin slices. They should curl slightly.
  3. In a large bowl, toss kale and beets with olive oil, salt, pepper and rosemary. Arrange on baking sheets and make sure they are not touching.
  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes until crispy or slightly brown. Watch carefully after the 15 minute mark, as they can burn quickly.
  5. Let completely cool before serving/packaging. Lasts up to one week in an airtight container (if they last that long. In my house they get eaten within 2 days)!

Kale and Beet Chips in box. Food gifts make great host gifts because we have too much “stuff.” Why not give them something they can eat and feel good about?

Watch my segment from Daytime York Region on Rogers TV!

 

Alternatively, this is a great snack to have at your own holiday parties. Potato chips are a finger food classic, but why not mix it up with some kale and beet chips? With less than 120 calories per cup you can eat LOTS of them without the guilt!
