Kale Chips

Kale chips are something we started making after visiting Anthony in Boulder one summer.  They are a great alternative to a salad and offer a crunch to the meal.  I do not like kale any other way and was even hesitant to try these, but they are worth it.  A great way to get a very healthy vegetable into your kids.

Kale Chips

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch of fresh kale
  • olive oil
  • salt

Directions

  1. Rip the kale into pieces. Make sure to rip away from the rib on the leaf. You will not use this part in your kale chips.
  2. Place the pieces in a large bowl.
  3. Drizzle olive oil over the kale and toss until all kale is lightly coated.  Add small amounts at a time so you don’t over coat.
  4. Preheat oven to 250 degrees
  5. Spread the kale out on 2 cookie sheets so it is one layer.  Sprinkle lightly with salt.
  6. Place in the oven and bake for 30 – 35 minutes.
  7. Not all the kale will be done at the same time. Remove pieces that are crisp all the way through and place remaining kale back in the oven for 5 minutes more.
  8. Continue this process until all the kale is crisp and finished.
