kale chips

Kale chips 02

Delicious!!  A really easy snack recipe that I saw on thekitchn.com site.  They are really addictive and cheap.


_(1) bunch of kale _olive oil _sea salt 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Wash the kale very well and dry as completely as possible.  Choose more of the leafy, upper parts of the kale rather than the lower thick stalk part of the kale.  Tear the kale into smaller pieces and place in a oven-safe pan.  Try not to overlap too much.  Drizzle olive oil over the kale and sprinkle salt on top for flavor.  I like using sea salt preferably, but any salt you have around will do.  Place the pan in the oven for about 10 minutes or so depending on your desired crispiness.  Best eaten while they are still warm and out of the oven

I bake mine a little less than 10 minutes because I like the edges to be crispy and the middle to be still a little soft (shown above).  The below pic shows them more fully crispy.  I'll let you decide what you like best.
