Kale chips once the preserve of raw foodists making them in dehydrators at home are now starting to hit the mainstream healthy snack market. They are quite simply pieces of kale dried at low tempersatures to retain all their goodness flavoured with a range of tastes.
I’ve tried and enjoyed kale chips before but they’ve been the cheesy tasting kind flavoured with cashews and nutritional yeast. It was a bit of a surprise then that these BBQ flavour chips had a sweet/ savoury thing going on. The caramelly sweetness comes from the coconut sugar paired with a nuttiness from the sunflower seeds, hints of tomato and a tongue tingling finish from the smoky chipotle chilli. Texture-wise there’s a satisfying crunch. I found these really interesting and moreish.
