....munchy crunchy kale chips

Tuesday, March 25, 2014

We all know kale is this amazing super food that we should probably be eating for breakfast, lunch and dinner, but lets be honest, this leafy green, in particular, is nothing to be desired in its raw untouched state...enter Kale Chips!!!

I  have been wanting to bake my own kale chips for a while now... I finally took the opportunity to do it last week and I am a little sad it took me this long... lets just say I will be throwing a few more bunches of kale in the cart next time I buy groceries. These delicious morsels are pretty much the easiest thing to make, and taste JUST like potato chips; needless to say the chips didn't last long around our house (we happen to have a chip aficionado who gobbled them up in no time flat!).
Here are the details on these crispy morsels of goodness...

Grocery List
1 bunch of curly green Kale
Olive Oil
Sea Salt
optional: Cayenne Pepper (if you like a little kick!)

-Preheat oven to 350 degrees
-Clean leaves and dry using a paper towel
-Using a knife, cut out the stem and ribs of each piece of kale
-Chop the left over leaves into 2-3 inch pieces
-Place the leaves in a bowl and pour olive oil over top; use enough olive oil to lightly coat all the leaves and not drown them
-Sprinkle  your seasonings ie. salt, pepper and cayenne (or whatever other seasoning you want to add)  on top of kale and toss lightly 
-Spread kale onto a baking sheet making sure to leave room between the leaves and not overcrowd them
-Place baking sheet in the oven and bake for 15 min until crisp
-Remove, let cool 
Kale chips are a really great alternative to potato chips and nutritionally speaking better bang for your buck... you can't really go wrong baking up a batch of these every once in a while!

What types of healthy snacks are you munching on these days?!?
