You will never, ever look at kale the same. I'm not kidding you, NEVER! Sorry for the crazy grainy iPhone pics but I just had to capture this super easy recipe. Kale chips are our new bff. Healthy, savory and packed full of so many great vitamins...you've got to just give these a try.
If you hate them, never make them again. Just think of it as you're only out a bunch of kale (usually no more than $2) and if you love them? It's a great addiction to have! Better for you than any potato chip and a suitable snacking option too. We hope you try this recipe and give us feedback on ways you've jazzed it up too! Read on for the recipe and our pic tutorial too!
1 bunch of kale
1 tbsp sea/kosher salt
2 tbsp olive oil
Preheat the oven to 350. Wash bunch of kale and spin in a salad spinner or dry off. Trim all kale leaves from each stem and cut/tear leaves into bite sized pieces. Coat all pieces of kale in the olive oil and salt. Make sure they're all entirely coated with oil. We like them oily so if you want to half the oil, just watch closely that the chips don't burn. Place kale pieces on non-stick cookie sheet in a single layer. Bake in oven until chips are brown but not burned. Enjoy!
PS - Our friend Steve popped by the house and saw I was making kale chips so I offered him some of the goodness. He actually laughed and said, 'No way, I can't just have one. Plus I actually prefer them super burnt too!' So hear ye, hear ye...some people love some kale chip burnt goodness so experiment with how you prefer your chippies.
Those clean leaves are gettin' their trim on.
Bite sized goodness.
I just used clean hands and coated them in their oil and salt bath.
Laid them out in a single layer...
Done and done!
Two plates of baked kale goodness? Yes, please!
Ok, even seeing this pic has me wanting more! We are surely never going to let our kale go bad, because you know all about us and our Green Monster smoothies HERE. But there are days when I just don't want a Green Monster and I crave potato chips. Hello kale chips...you're my new snacky snack bff!
