By now, we’ve all heard of Kale Chips – over, and over, and over again. If not, just walk into the Health Food section of any grocery store and you are bound to see at least 5-10 different brands, flavors, and/or varieties taking up precious shelf space.
Now don’t get me wrong, I am a huge fan of Kale Chips and have come to definitely favor some brands more than others. It can just be a bit overwhelming to try and decipher which one to choose if you don’t have a preferred brand yet.
I think that those at Tender Grown knew this and is why they decided to put a new spin on the beloved kale chip by taking the leaves of 4 vegetable superstars and turning them into crisp, delicious snacks. And welcome Tender Grown Leaf Crisps.
THE PRODUCT: Tender Grown Leaf Crisps are different then what you’ll find from other vegetable chip and/or kale chip brands. This company has actually taken the leaves of 4 of the most well-known Brassica family plants (including Kale, Broccoli, Cauliflower and Brussels Sprouts), and have gently dehydrated them at low temperatures, giving them a crispy and delicious texture. This process also helps to preserve the naturally occurring enzymes in the raw leaves, passing this nutritional value on to you.
Artisan crafted, Tender Grown Leaf Crisps maintain the beautiful raw nature of their leaves and come in all shapes and sizes. They are also extremely delicate, but don’t despair, even the smallest of pieces can be sprinkled on salads, popcorn, soups, etc. making it so you don’t have to waste a drop.
Available in a variety of flavors (for each different vegetable leaf), including Cheese, Chipotle, Ranch, Chili Lime and Almond Raisin, whether looking for something sweet, savory or spicy, you are sure to find it with Tender Grown.
NUTRITION-WISE: All-natural, gluten-free and dairy-free, these vegan snacks also contain zero trans fats, cholesterol, artificial ingredients or guilt. Furthermore, since all of Tender Grown Leaf Crisps are gently dehydrated at low temperatures, all of the naturally occurring enzymes in these raw leaves are preserved, ensuring that all of their nutritional properties are maintained.
*Thin, crispy, and easy to break into small pieces, Tender Grown Leaf Crisps are great for kids and adults of practically any age. However, since some of the edges may be a little “scratchy” if swallowed, make sure your little one is good at gumming before feeding them to him or her.
WHERE TO BUY: You can conveniently purchase Tender Grown products directly from their Online Store, or at a number of select HEB locations.
FINAL THOUGHTS: I’m a big fan of Kale Chips and really do enjoy eating them. I also like the fact that there are so many brands and flavors out there to help to entice my taste buds. With some being more crunchy, some more “coated”, and some veering more on the simple side, it seems like there is something for every mood or occasion.
However, even the wide array of kale chips can get old after a while and is the reason I have come to enjoy Tender Grown Leaf Crisps so much. By taking the actual leaves of the plants, as opposed to the florets like some other companies who’ve tried to dabble in the “other than kale” chips, these products are not only delightfully delicate, but a welcome change to the norm. Plus, the fact that they come in such a wide array of flavors makes them great to put on, and in, pretty much any type of entrée you can conjure up.
