Recipe: Simple Kale Chips :)


Simple Kale Chips:

-1 large head of fresh, cleaned and dried kale (any kind) *cut off leaves and chop rough, freeze stalks for smoothies 😉

-olive, canola, or safflower oil (bottle on hand, as varying amounts are used)

-salt (varying amounts, depends on taste)

Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees on convection bake, with middle rack in place.  In a large bowl add the chopped kale (needs to be very dry as water and oil do not mix well).  Add a small splash of your oil of choice making sure to lightly cover all kale (mixing with a clean hand is the easiest way).  Add a pinch of salt (1/2 tsp to start), kale soaks up the salt when it bakes and could come out too salty.  You can always add salt at the end if desired.  Now, add 1/3 of the kale to a large baking sheet so that it is evenly spread and makes a thin layer.  Pop the baking pan into the oven, now this part is a bit tricky because you can not walk away or it might burn!  It really depends on your oven, mine is old so about every 5 minutes I turn the pan to each side, until the chips are crispy to the touch and they should move around/sound dry when you shake the pan slightly, that\’s how you know they are done.  Put them on to some paper towel in a bowl or into a strainer to cool completely, then eat!  Repeat the steps 2 more times with the rest of the kale and you get enough to snack on for a couple days.  Its a healthy alternative to popcorn and tastes great!  Hope you enjoy!  Thanks, be aware and eat with care 🙂

*new ovens, you may have to turn the pan every 2 minutes, as they will cook very fast, practice makes perfect!
