A Savory, Crunchy Chip made from a Superfood? You betcha…..Kale Chips!

Kale Crisps

Kale Crisps

Ever crave something potato-chippy but don’t feel like ingesting all the saturated oils and salt?  Then you MUST make yourself some kale chips.  Kale is one of those superfoods which are extremely high in anti-oxidants, and luckily, is easier to find in grocery stores nowadays.  The end product has the crispness and texture of potato chips, but it’s healthy and satisfies a junkfood craving.  Can I get an “AMEN”?

Kale Chips
1 bunch of kale, with stems trimmed
1 1/2 TBL. extra virgin olive oil
pinch of salt

Preheat your oven to 325.  After your kale is destemmed, cut into pieces similar to the size of a regular potato chip.  Take a gallon size ziploc bag, place kale, oil, and salt within and give it a good shake so that all oil and salt is evenly dispersed.  Place kale on a parchment or aluminum foil lined pan and throw in the oven for approximately 15-18 minutes, or until edges of kale start to turn a brownish hue.  Take out of oven, sit down in front of TV (if you are me, watch some bad reality TV, but I’m not recommending that) and crunch away at a pile of superfood kale chips, and throw your guilt out the back door.    Special thanks to my SIL, Sarah, who introduced me to this non-naughty, awesome snack!
