New snacks for the new year ~ Kale chips

A friend of mine introduced me to this cool new snack this winter. Kale gets crispy like potato chips in the oven. Who knew? I would have never guessed that is how it would turn out. They are a fun way to get more greens! They feel like junk food, but they’re definitely not :). That’s my kind of snack! Thanks Kristi!

Kale Chips

One bunch of kale

1 tablespoon olive oil

Kosher salt to taste

Preheat your oven to 275 degrees

Remove the stems, and rip the leaves into pieces. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Drizzle with olive oil and rub it into the leaves so it is evenly distributed. Then put the kale in an even layer on the cookie sheet. Sprinkle with salt to taste. (Remember, these will shrink significantly in the oven, so be careful not to over salt.) Bake for about 30 minutes, stirring a couple of times throughout to ensure even baking. They are finished when they are crispy. That’s it!

As a side note, the flavor is condensed and very potent, so these would also be good as a garnish or over popcorn.

Hope you enjoy!
