Kale, the leafy green guaranteed to make you feel healthier, is a great addition to any diet. For those of us still getting used to this veggie that can be a little tough if not prepared correctly, baking the leaves into chips is a great introduction. Really, coating anything in a little oil and salt is a surefire way to make taste good, right? So good that even your kiddos will love ‘em. Kale is chock-full of nutrients like vitamins K, A and C and antioxidants and aids in cancer prevention and anti-inflammation. It truly is superb.
To make kale chips you’ll need:
1 bunch of Lacinato kale
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Wash and dry kale leaves. Remove ribs from kale leaves and tear into 2-3″ pieces. In a large bowl, toss kale with oi and sea salt until evenly coated. Place kale on an ungreased baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for 7-9 minutes, checking at 7 minutes to make sure the chips aren’t burning. Let cool slightly then remove from the pan with a spatula. Enjoy!
