Did you know that kale has more iron per calorie than beef? Yep. And it’s a leafy green: that’s always a good thing. So what if I told you that you could have all of this green goodness in the form of a chip? That’s what I thought. This recipe of kale is devised from a particularly good choice I made one day while ordering food from Sideboard.
