What You'll Need
  • 1 bunch of kale, rinsed and dried
  • 1 red beetroot, sliced thin
  • 1 golden beetroot, sliced thin
  • 400g popped, popcorn (plain)
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
How to Make It
  1. Preheat oven to 180c / 160f

  2. Remove kale leaves from steam and tear into strips.

  3. Toss kale with 1/2 tbsp of olive oil, lay on baking sheet and sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt.

  4. Bake the kale in the oven for 8-12 minutes or until crispy.

  5. Place the sliced red beetroot in a bowl and toss with 1/2 tbsp of olive oil and pinch of sea salt.

  6. Lay the beetroot evenly on a baking tray and then cover with another baking tray. This will help the beetroot crisp up in the oven.

  7. For the golden beetroot, repeat the same steps in a seprate bowl and baking sheet so the colours don't bleed.

  8. Bake the beetroot chips for 15-20 minutes or until crispy. Remove the top baking sheet and allow to cool.

  9. For a homemade BBQ seasoning, in a small bowl mix together the paprika, onion powder, brown sugar, garlic powder, chilli powder, pepper and the remaining salt. Place the popcorn in a large bowl and toss with 1 1/2 tbsp of olive oil. Then sprinkle the BBQ seasoning and toss again to coat.

  10. Add your baked kale and beetroot chips to the coated popcorn and toss again. Enjoy!
