Kale Chips

Ok…so kale chips have been all the rave in the health food community for a while and I have no idea why it has taken me so long to make my own. All you literally have to do is buy one bunch of kale, wash them thoroughly, pat the leaves dry, use your bare hands to rip into ‘chip’ sizes , coat with olive oil and a 1/2 tbsp of sea salt. Really rub the olive oil and salt all over the kale chips to make sure they are well coated. Spread the kale over a baking dish and bake at 350F for 5-7 minutes. I followed someone else’s recipe, the first time and baked them for 10 minutes and they all burnt! I would advise anyone to watch them closely and taste a few at 5 minutes, if you prefer them more dry, bake a little longer. I actually prefer the texture that’s in between, not to chewy and not too crunchy. This makes quite the healthy snack and I can’t think of a healthier and more delicious green or vegetable period than kale! My husband actually loved them which I couldn’t believe. He is usually very averse to my “health” foods/recipes. Here are the before and after pics.
