{March 13, 2013}   Yummy Basics: Kale Chips

Alright friends. Here is my way of making kale chips, which is something you should do often.

Why? Because Kale is a superfood and kale chips are tasty 🙂

Start out with one bunch of kale (any variety). These are the beauties I got in my Yum Yum Produce box last week.

Set your oven to 350°F while you prep the kale.

Clean and dry the kale if needed, and chop off any thick stems. Place the leaves in a bowl and drizzle about a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil over them.

Leaf by leaf, massage the oil over the kale evenly and then place the leaves in a single layer on a foil lined baking tray. Don’t skip this step. The olive oil is good for your skin and the chips will be evenly crispy if you make sure the oil is coating them evenly.

Generously sprinkle with salt and any seasonings you’d like. Today I did one tray with just salt and a second try with salt and chili seasoning.

Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes until they are the crispiness you prefer. Pour into a bowl and serve. (Or they will keep for a few days in a sealed container). I like to dip them in ketchup or just have them plain.

Einstein thinks kale chips are fun to play with, but he leaves the crumbs on the floor for me to clean up. This dog will eat almost anything but not leaves.
