Which is Healthier – Spinach or Kale?
We all know that leafy greens are good for us, but when it comes to kale and spinach, which is the healthier option? Kale is a nutrient powerhouse, providing more than twice the amount of vitamins A and C than spinach. It’s also a good source of calcium, iron, and fiber. Spinach contains slightly more vitamin C than kale and a good amount of folate, magnesium, and potassium. So both kale and spinach are healthy options, and that’s why we used them both in this healthy snack recipe.
How Do You Keep the Greens From Getting Soggy?
The key to keeping the greens from getting soggy is to bake them fully and then let the chips cool before enjoying! Once cool, they can be stored in an airtight container lined with uncooked rice to keep the chips crisp for up to five days.
Can I Make These Kale and Spinach Chips in the Air Fryer?
Yes, you can make these chili lime spinach and kale chips in the air fryer ! They are just as crispy and delicious as the ones you would make in the oven. The key to getting them crispy is to make sure that your kale and spinach leaves are dry before you put them in the air fryer.
