Easy and Good: Kale Chips

How long ago did I buy that kale?  Because it still looks pretty good.



I had three bunches left and used one for this recipe.  I'd say it made one serving.  I ripped the leaves into pieces, putting the thick stems in the freezer to make broth with another time.  Recipes for kale chips are all over the net but the gist seems to be toss them with olive oil and seasoning, them bake for 10 or 15 minutes.  I kept it simple, tossing mine with olive oil, salt and pepper after I washed them.  Then I spread them on parchment paper to bake.


After 15 minutes in the oven at 350, they were ready.  Crispy, yummy and green, who knew!  This is going to my my new go-to snack if I want something crunchy.  Try them, you will not believe how easy they are to make, and how fun it is to eat "chips" that are so healthy!

Okay, I was thinking EW! the first time I skimmed the pictures. But then I saw that you had a tiny bit of olive oil and salt and pepper. And now, I'm okay with it.
