Kale Chips: These are a must try!

April 29, 2013

So I have a confession, I have a slight addiction to chips and it’s kind of bad. I love carbs and love salt, so it makes sense that chips are my best friend. So when I heard about Kale chips, I decided I needed to give this a try. 
When I first read how to make them I was so surprised at how easy and fast they are to make. And as if you didn’t know already, Kale is a super food! Some say it’s the healthiest vegetable on the planet! So I was very excited to see how they would turn out. 
For ingredients, very simple all you need is a bunch of Kale, some EVOO and salt or sea salt.

Clean and wash the kale and I suggest placing on a paper towel to absorb the excess water.

Next, place Kale on cookie sheet lined with foil or parchment paper. Drizzle olive oil and sprinkle on salt. Place in a pre-heated over at 500 degrees and cook for 5 minutes. So simple! When they are done take them out and they are ready to eat!

The texture was very crispy just like a chip and the flavor was surprisingly so good! I loved the crunch and the saltiness. I could easily munch on these instead of my chips and be completely satisfied while not feeling guilty.  These are a definite must try!!

  1. Kale is one of my go to greens. I eat it probably 4-5 nights as week. We toss the chips or sauteed kale in our salads, use the chips as a healthy side or eat as during the day.

    For chips – get creative with your spices too – I like to add some sesame seeds, garlic powder (not salt but could do that too vs the sea salt), cayenne, hot sauce every now and then (before you bake or after) and even splash with soy sauce for a little different flavor. YUM!

    Also – try parchment paper vs foil – they turn out a little better in my opinion. Plus you don't have the hazard of aluminum touching your food. Scary!

  2. I saw this on Hungry Girl and she used an olive oil cooking spray on the kale and then sprinkled the salt on them. I was nervous to try but now I definitely have to try these!
