Kale Chips

Yes, I know I'm a little late on getting on this trend.  I was honestly a little intimidated by kale chips.  But these chips are so easy to make and so delicious that I had to share it with you, late or not!

As I was checking out of Target the other day, the cashier asked me what I used my kale for.  I told him about a kale and onion pasta dish I make (I'll post on that, too, if you're interested!).  He told me how easy kale chips are to make, telling me to simply drizzle a little olive oil over them, add a dash of salt, and pop them in the oven.  The key, he said, is to give them enough space on the pan.

So, simply tear kale into larger pieces and toss in olive oil.  Top them with a sprinkling of salt and put them into the oven for 7-10 minutes at 350 degrees.  The aim is to get them crispy, but still green.

  3. Ok, I have to confess, I've never tried kale in my whole life. And even if kale chips sound a little bit weird to me, I might give it a try, they look great in your pics!
