Need a Snack??? Try Kale Chips!

It's recipe time!   If you're looking for something different and easy to make give Kale Chips a try.  These make a great snack, and if Kale's not your thing, this procedure also works well with zucchini and eggplant too.  I have to warn you though - it's VERY easy to eat the whole batch!  Give them a try and let me know what you think!

Kale Chips

Ingredients:
1 bunch Kale
Olive Oil
Seasonings (your choice)

Procedure:
1.  Separate and wash kale leaves.  (Or buy a bag of pre-washed kale.)


2.  Tear kale into medium to large sized pieces. (It will shrink a lot as it loses water!!) 

3.  Place in a single layer on a cookie sheet.  (I line mine with a sheet of aluminum foil for easy clean up!)


4.  Drizzle or spray well with olive oil.

4.  Season to your taste.  I use garlic powder and a salt-free seasoning blend like Mrs. Dash.  Experiment to find out which flavors you like best! 

5.  Bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes until they are dry and crunchy.  Watch the chips carefully - they go from done to ashes extremely quickly.  I speak from experience...


6.  Now the hard part...  Try not to eat them all at one time!  Enjoy!

  2. I absolutely love kale chips! I usually make mine with dinosaur kale since it holds up better than more delicate varieties. I have become a pro at stripping the leaves from the stalks--hold the end in one hand and grab the stem with the other and just pull up the stem, cleanly extracting the leaves. My husband and I can easily eat 2 bunches each!
