If you like kale chips then you will love these Brussels sprouts chips. Brussels sprouts are part of the cruciferous vegetable family. What is known as one of the most disliked foods is one of the most popular nutrient rich super foods.

This liver supporting vegetable along with the turmeric makes a great anti-inflammatory snack and satisfies that crispy craving.
To make these crispy healthy chips you will need to wash 10 Brussels sprouts and put them through a salad spinner to remove access water. You will then cut the bottoms of the sprouts and separate each leaf and put them in a bowl. Discard the inner piece and save these for another use. Add olive oil and toss very gently with your hands to evenly coat the leaves.
