Kale Chips

Nothing beats a salty snack right? Well how about a salty and crunchy snack that isn't bad for you? Try making kale chips. Kale is something that is rather new to my diet (okay, I honestly don't know if I ever even had it before), and I have been hearing raves about kale chips for months now. So when my parents told me that they grew some organic kale in their garden I was sure to take a few handfuls with me.

The great thing about these chips is that they are SO EASY TO MAKE. I even think I might have overcooked mine just slightly...but the flavor is so intense it doesn't matter how long you cook them for.

kale (doesn't matter what type...I used two different types of kale), with the stems cut off
extra virgin olive oil
sea salt

Be sure to wash and thoroughly dry the kale. Cut off the stems and arrange them on a sheet pan. Drizzle them with olive oil and put a sprinkle of sea salt on them. Toss sure you coat both sides nicely. Pop them into a 425F oven for about 15 minutes or until they brown.

Now you can toss away your potato chips since kale is so much more nutritious. ENJOY!!!
