Kale Chips: Easy and diet-friendly!

 
I love kale chips! They're too easy to make and they're healthy for snacking. Kale is $1.18 a bunch at Walmart locally. The first bunch I got was huge! I made the batch with a bit of olive oil and salt and ended up eating the whole thing (minus 1-2 pieces that my husband ate) throughout the evening. The next time I made them, I put BBQ rub on them and they were pretty good too.


Today's recipe was just basic:

1 bunch of kale
salt
1 tsp of olive oil - approximately

I separate the kale leaf from the thick stem and tear them into 2-3 inch pieces.  Then, halve the kale and make sure it's nice and dry, put a 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil in a bowl and toss the half of the kale bunch in it.  Lay the kale on your baking sheet and salt lightly.


Bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes, or until crispy.  Watch it though, it will burn!  You may have a couple of spots of too much oil, so you can put those pieces on some paper towels to drain and eat them later.




Use any flavor you'd like!  This is a great way to incorporate some extra greens into your diet. Pin It
