Kale chips?!? Doesn’t sound very appealing, does it? But surprisingly, this healthy treat is quite addictive. I found a few recipes for kale chips on the web last week while trying to find a new way to eat kale. This was quick, easy, and enjoyed by everyone in my family – including my 3-year-old who kept asking for them even after they were long gone.
Kale chips are surprisingly crispy with a great flavor. My advice: When making them, don’t add too much salt. It seemed to take very little. Also, watch them closely as they’re baking so you don’t scorch them. The dark green color maintains, even after baking, so they may not look done when in fact they are.
1 bunch fresh kale
1 tsp. olive oil
Sea Salt to Taste
Tear the kale into bite-sized chunks, wash, and drain very well. Toss with 1 tsp. olive oil and sprinkle lightly with sea salt. Spread on cookie sheet and bake at 350º for 10 – 15 minutes, stirring every few minutes to prevent scorching. When the kale is crispy, it’s done!
I could have eaten the entire bunch of kale by myself! We liked them best when they were still warm, but they were still very tasty after cooling.
