Kids under 5 seem to love to rip things like paper or kale. They also like to bake, need to eat their greens, and need time with you. At the nexus of all these things is Kale Chips.

Recipe:

1 large buch of Kale
1-2 Tbs Olive Oils
1/2 tps Salt.
Parchment paper (optional)
Thin baking sheet. You want good direct heat-transfer.
One small assistant (optional but much more fun)


Preheat your over to 275 F. Wash the kale really well and then dry it thoroughly. I use a spinner because my two year old loves to crank it up. Have your kid rip the kale off its more woody stems and tear it into roughly 2 inch by 2 inch pieces. My two year old loves this part. Put the shredded kale on a thin baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Drizzle some olive over the Kale and have your toddler runch her hands through it until the oil evenly coats the kale. Sprinkle a bit of salt over the Kale. Pop the baking sheet in the over for 30 to 40 min. Somewhere toward the middle of the baking time stir the Kale with a spatula. When your Kale is done it will be dry and crispy like a very thin potato chip. It will taste a bit like a potato chips too so your kid will eat it with enthusiasm.

My guess for the calories :
120 cal for Olive oil
30 cal for Kale
This makes about 2 servings, so 75 ish calories per serving.

This looks so much less oily than the deep-fried kale chips I made last week Cheesy Will definitely give this recipe a shot (no toddler, just me and my skeptical-about-kale husband)!!

I've made kale chips a lot and love them. I love nutritional yeast on them. Has anyone had any luck in storing them? On the off chance I don't eat the entire pan they always get sort of soggy on me in tupperware containers.

Did your toddler enjoy eating them? I have one with an aversion to green things lately... Undecided
