Kale Chips

For the last year I’ve read and wondered about Kale.  I’m not a big salad person, sure I enjoy salads and occassionally crave something green but for the most part Kale didn’t sound that appealing.  Well, I’ve tried it finally and I’m jumping on the Kale train cause these chips were amazing!

Raw Kale tastes like grass to me.  These chips taste nothing like grass.  Instead they took on the flavor of the topping.  Light, crunchy bite size chips with tons of flavor and no guilt.

The salt kale chips almost taste like popcorn.  I think I’ve found a new movie snack.  And the sesame seed chips were even better; flavorful, crisp and so good.  I can’t wait to try more toppings like Parmesan, curry, or red pepper.

Go get some Kale and try these!

Experiment with your favorite toppings and start out the New Year with a healthier snack.

Kale Chips
makes 1 serving

2 stalks fresh Kale
Olive Oil
Topping of choice

Chop the kale into bite size pieces, removing the center stem.

In a medium bowl toss with enough olive oil to coat kale evenly*.

Spread out on a baking sheet and sprinkle with toppings.

Bake for 7 minutes in a 350 degree oven or until crisp.  Enjoy!


* I poured a glug of olive oil in at time and tossed, then repeated until evenly coated.

    Do they keep?

      They should keep for a few days in an airtight container. I haven’t tried storing them. They are pretty fragile so I’d keep them in Tupperware rather than a bag.
