Salt & Vinegar Spinach Chips

Move over kale!

Just kidding. You know we love you. But lately, you’ve been abused. People don’t even know what to do with you anymore! We’ve used you in countless recipes, of course, because you’re awesome. I even have a t-shirt with your name written on it  (and no, I’m not kidding)! But maybe it’s time for  you to step aside for a bit and make room for some of your fellow awesome greens.

Like, spinach. Also a very cool, nutrient rich, delicious, green leafy vegetable. And very versatile too, in case your thinking plain old boring salad or fat laden creamed spinach as your only options…

Let’s see, we have our traditional “Espinacas a la Catalana” (spinach with pine nuts and raisins), the savory spinach hamantaschen, the savory spinach and cheese donut bites (perfect for Hanukkah, by the way) and, how can we forget, our award winning spinach and potato nests! Just to name a few…

But, since everyone is making, selling and talking about kale chips, we thought spinach should be made into a chip also. Why? because they make a super crispy, tasty and light snack that might be just a little easier on your stomach. Slightly addictive though! You can definitely customize these however you want them. Here we went for the salt & vinegar version, because we just love it. But feel free to add your favorite spice! And as always, don’t forget to share your ideas with us ;)

Enjoy!!

    What a BRILLIANT idea!!! The only way my daughter eats kale is when its in chip form and she loves salt and vinegar! If I gave her these spinach ones she would probably not want the real potato chips ever! I gotta try these salt and vinegar chips…gotta look for vinegar powder! Thank you!

      We love salt and vinegar potato chips, so we figured we can make a healthier option and it worked beautifully.

    Oh these look so good! Great idea! I do love kale chips though but I will give spinach chips a try. We fry them in a chickpea batter in Indian cooking and they make awesome pakoras/bhajis. So I know salt and vinegar spinach chips will be wonderful!
