Kale Chips

by Steph

Ok, I know most of you saw this title in your email and just hit the delete button.  But if you didn’t…good for you :-) This is a great snack.  Kale is so good for your.  It is an excellent source of vitamins A, C and K. It is abundant in phytochemicals, which are associated with preventing cancer, and it has about triple the amount of fiber as spinach.  I know we are all looking for ways to get more fiber in our diets.

Now, If I served up a plate of kale in my house for dinner, Tom might leave me.  So I have to be creative in how I get this powerhouse vegetable into my diet.  I have blended into smoothies, and used it in stir-fries, but Kale chips are the best.  They are crazy addictive, just like potato chips, but no empty calories.  They keep well for a few days in an air tight container. You can eat them warm, or room temp. Give them a try, you won’t be disappointed

Here are your ingredients:

  • 1 bunch of kale
  • salt
  • 2 tsp
  • Various seasonings (chili powder, garlic, parmesan cheese etc)
Equipment needed
  • Cutting board & knife
  • baking sheets
  • Salad spinner (optional)

Preheat your oven to 375

Remove the stem from the kale and chop into bite size pieces

 

Rinse and drain very well, if you have a salad spinner, use that. If not, just rinse them in a strainer and lay them out on towels to dry.

When they are dry, place kale in a bowl and drizzle with 2 tsp olive oil, enough the coat the kale.

Season with salt and any other seasoning you would like.  Lay them out on a single layer on a cookie sheet.

 

 

Cook for 15 minutes.  The kale will darken as it cooks.  Remove them from the oven and let them sit for a few minutes. They will crisp up as they cool.

Store in an airtight container.

 

I hope you give these a try!

Any other creative ways you use kale or leafy greens? Please share!
