Crispy Cabbage Chip Recipe

What are cabbage chips?

I’m not kidding when I say this Crispy Cabbage Chip Recipe is the perfect substitute for potato chips and crisps. Its hard to believe that cabbage leaves can be dehydrated into chips and still hit that craving but they really do. This is a great recipe if you are trying to lose weight as they are so low calorie! They have the perfect amount of crunch. Cabbage chips so easy to customise flavours and you could even play around with what greens you use. I’ve tried kale, spring greens and Cabbage but Savoy Cabbage is my favourite by far.

The cabbage chips can be ready in as little as 10 minutes and whole a bowl full will only cost you 20 calories. I kept my crispy cabbage chip recipe simple and flavoured with salt. However, you can literally add any herb or spice you enjoy, be sure to let me know what combinations you come up with in the comments below!

Step 1: Take the stalks away

Firstly, cut or break leaves off of your Cabbage and use a knife or carefully rip the leaf off the stalk. You really don’t want to try and make your chips/crisps with the stalk still attached, they’re much thicker than the leaves and they will not crisp up. To put it bluntly, if you miss this step, it will feel like your munching on a limp slug. That would totally ruin your salty experience.

Step 2: Cut into chips

After removing the stalk, your leaves are probably in halves or quarters. If not, cut or rip them to a more appropriate chip/crisp size and place on a baking tray. Sprinkle with salt or whatever flavourings your using.

Step 4: Bake!

Bake at 70°C (160°F) for 10-30 minutes, checking them every 5 minutes. Some chips may cook faster than others so these may need to be removed early to prevent burning as they can burn really suddenly. If you have a dehydrator or multicooker with a dehydrate setting you can use this too.

And there you have it, a delicious, low calorie, clean, oil free alternative to potato chips that I promise will satisfy your savoury cravings. Don’t forget to let me know in the comments what your favourite flavourings are.

Seasoning variations for cabbage chips:

  1. Classic Sea Salt: Keep it simple and let the natural flavours shine with a sprinkle of sea salt. The classic touch enhances the cabbage’s inherent goodness.
  2. Zesty Garlic Parmesan: Mix up grated Parmesan cheese with garlic powder for a savoury, cheesy kick. Sprinkle this combo over the cabbage leaves before baking for a gourmet twist.
  3. Spicy Paprika Delight: Kick up the heat by dusting the cabbage chips with a mix of smoky paprika and a pinch of cayenne pepper. It’s a fiery flavour explosion in every crispy bite.
  4. Herb Garden Bliss: Combine dried herbs like rosemary, thyme, and oregano for a garden-fresh seasoning. The aromatic herb blend adds a fragrant and earthy note to your crunchy chips.
  5. Tangy Vinegar Infusion: Drizzle apple cider vinegar over the cabbage leaves before baking for a tangy twist. This option adds a zesty kick that pairs perfectly with the cabbage’s natural sweetness.
  6. Savoury Onion Goodness: Create an onion lover’s dream by dusting the cabbage with onion powder. It adds a savoury and slightly sweet profile that’s downright addictive.
  7. Cheesy Jalapeño Explosion: For a bold and cheesy kick, sprinkle shredded cheddar and a hint of dried jalapeño flakes over the cabbage. The result? Spicy, cheesy, and utterly delicious chips.
  8. Lemon Pepper Zing: Give your cabbage chips a burst of freshness with a sprinkle of lemon pepper. The zesty citrus notes complement the cabbage’s crispiness flawlessly.

Feel free to mix and match these seasoning variations to find your perfect combo. Whether you’re a fan of savoury, spicy, or cheesy, there’s a seasoning blend to suit every taste bud. Happy snacking!
