Kale chips!!

Tags:

One of my most favorite things!  Quick, easy, packed with nutrients, and a great way to use up your early autumn kale bounty.  They are highly addictive, so make plenty.

Ingredients:

  • kale (2 bunches, curly or lacinato)
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • salt to taste

Cut or tear kale into pieces, removing the tough inner stalk.  Toss the kale in olive oil and salt in a large bowl. Place on large baking sheet, trying to distribute kale into one layer.  Bake at 250°F for 40 minutes or until dry and crispy, stirring and flipping several times.  If you’re in a hurry, you can also bake at 350°F for 15-20 minutes – you have to be more careful with stirring, because it your kale can go from crispy to black quite easily!  At higher heat you also lose some nutrients.

Very easy to customize… consider adding granulated garlic, chili powder/hot sauce, lime juice, soy sauce/bragg’s, sesame oil, a touch of maple syrup etc.  Play with combinations to make more addictive kale snacks!

YAY KALE!!
