Sukuma Wiki Chips!

Now, most folks here are probably familiar with the staple green sukuma wiki. Commonly referred to as "kale", sukuma wiki is actually a different plant variety than the brassica to which most of the West calls kale. In Kenya, it is ubiquitous, and most often served with ugali...but today, we decided to serve it up a different way. Sukuma wiki chips two-styles! IMG_4289  IMG_4290  IMG_4293

To start, we took a fresh bunch of "kale" from UBUNTU Farm, washed, destemmed, and ripped it into large pieces before coating it with olive oil. Style one we added soy sauce and sesame seeds; style two we added paprika, chili powder and salt. Bake at 160 degrees Celcius for about 15 minutes (turning them over halfway through)....and voila! Guilt-free chips galore!
