It’s hard to believe that eating greens can be so addicting. These crunchy, spicy chard chips are a perfect alternative to greasy potato chips. Feel free to experiment by using other seasonings like garlic powder, smoked paprika or nutritional yeast.
1 large bunch of Swiss chard
1 Tbsp curry powder
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 Tbsp grapeseed oil or other neutral-tasting oil
Preheat oven to 325 F.
Rinse Swiss chard leaves and pat dry with clean kitchen towel. Trim stems and tear leaves into fairly large pieces of equal size, about 2 to 3 inch squares.
In small bowl, stir together curry powder, cayenne (if using) and salt.
In large bowl, toss chard with oil and then with curry mixture.
Place chard on 2 parchment paper-lined baking sheets in a single layer, or prepare in batches if necessary, and cook until dry and crispy, about 12 to 15 minutes. Keep an eye on chard chips toward the end of cooking time so you don’t burn the leaves.
