Perfect Kale Chips Every Time

roasted-kaleFor a nutrient-rich snack to replace potato chips with only half the calories and oodles of vitamins (A,K,C, B6) and minerals—and even a little protein thrown in for good measure, try baking kale chips. They’re actually a lot tastier than they look! If you haven’t already discovered this simple treat, here’s how:kale-chips

  1. Wash, take out the stems, and break into bite sized pieces
  2. Coat very lightly with olive oil and spread on a cookie sheet in a single layer. (A heavy coat=soggy chips 😦  )
  3. Sprinkle with seasoning salt and pepper (or your favoring flavorings)
  4. Pop in a preheated, 300°F oven for 10 minutes. Turn and bake for another 10 minutes at 275°F. I think the real secret is in then turning off the oven and leaving the kale to dry additionally until you’re ready to serve. This also keeps the chips warm.
  5. Enjoy right from the pan! (They’re very fragile.) For whatever reason, we never have any left over!     🙂roasting-kaleBetter is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a stalled ox and hatred therewith” (Proverbs 15:17).
