Gotta find something to do up here in Alaska

Kale is a beautiful plant. It's ruffly and looks so healthy. But who cooks Kale? I know little about this vegetable. So today I decided to try something new: kale chips. It's simple and totally satisfies my salty craving. You wouldn't believe you're eating something so rich in beta-ceratene and vitamins A and C. I'm going to make this instead of popcorn during movie nights!



Ingredients:
One bunch of kale, cleaned and dried with paper towels or salad spinner
2 teaspoons of olive oil
salt to taste

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Meanwhile, remove the thick stems from the kale. You can just tear them off. Break up the leaves into bite-sized pieces. Toss in a bowl with olive oil so that each leaf is glossy. Place kale on two baking sheets and make sure the leaves don't overlap anywhere (they won't turn out as crispy that way). Bake for 15 minutes.

This sounds really yummy! I've been looking for something to do with kale besides cooking it down soggy (=gross!). Thanks!

I love making these! I usually use garlic powder or garlic salt instead of regular salt. Try switching it up by using any favorite spices.

I made this for Thanksgiving last year.  And even though there was still some stuffing left, there was no kale!

Add a little nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavour. You can dehydrate these too if you don't want to cook them, retains more nutrients that way. Kids love these, don't be afraid to try them for yourself!

My favorite way to do this is with balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and sea salt!

This deserves lots of love! I've shared this with everyone I know that cooks and have had NO negative reactions. My parents and aunt LOVED this healthy snack! I share it in the natural foods aisle while shopping when someone asks a sales associate if they have pre-packaged kale chips. More baked kale chips! Great salty snack, OMG.
