Kale Chips

kale-chips

When I need a bit of crunch, one of my healthiest ways to get it is to make Kale chips.  While kale normally has a very strong flavor, even my 7 year old son took extra.

Tip: To save money, buy a bunch of fresh kale and remove the stalk yourself. To save time, buy pre-chopped Kale and just pick through to remove thick pieces of stalk.

Regardless of which kale you buy, make sure to rinse and thoroughly dry your kale to achieve the crispiest of chips.

Ingredients:

  • 1 bunch of Kale, rinsed/dried, thick stalk removed, and leave cut into bite size pieces
  • 1T extra virgin olive oil (or avocado oil)
  • 1t sea salt

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 400F
  • Place non-stick foil on a large baking sheet (more than one baking sheet may be needed as it’s important that the kale fit in a relatively single layer)
  • Add kale to the baking sheet
  • Massage the oil and salt into the kale
  • Spread kale into a relatively single layer
  • Bake for 10-15 min

It’s important to watch the kale so that it doesn’t burn.  Kale crisps that even get slightly brown don’t taste too great in my opinion.
