Kale Chips

One day my husband saw a small bag of kale chips at Whole Foods, was just about to add it to our basket, then noticed that it cost about $6.00 and decided not to make that ridiculous purchase. As we left the market, he called Katie to tell her about this rather interesting experience and she said, "Oh! I love kale chips! They're sooooo good!"

Here's a great kale chip recipe that won't cost you a small fortune. I know it might sound strange, but trust me... they really are "sooooo good!" And very healthy. I made these on a Saturday afternoon and they were all gone in a flash. Everyone in the house loved them.

Kale Chips
1 large bunch kale
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

This is the fresh kale - washed, dried, and ready to remove those tough white stems

Rinse kale leaves under cold running water and dry with a clean dish towel. Trim off and discard the tough stems. Coarsely chop the leaves. Place them in a large bowl and drizzle the olive oil over the leaves. Toss the leaves to coat and rub each leaf with olive oil if needed to get them all coated. 

Spread the chopped leaves on a baking sheet in a single layer and sprinkle with the salt (the picture above on the left shows the fresh kale just starting out in the oven & the picture on the right shows the kale fresh out of the oven and ready to eat).

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until the leaves are crisp. Serve immediately. Enjoy!!
