KALE CHIPS: A popular and healthy party snack that goes very fast! I can eat these chips from a whole head of kale in one sitting! It is very addictive, the healthy kind of addition. Some of you might wonder what they taste like? Some of us, including me, think they taste similar to the seasoned seaweed used to make Sushi in Japanese restaurants. Others think they taste like potato chips thinly sliced and just a bit more bitter. You have to try them and let me know what you think!
- One head of kale, thick stems removed, and leaves torn or cut into 2-inch pieces
(Note: to remove stems, you can use a pair of cooking scissors to cut the green leafy parts from the stems. You can also simply tear the leaves away from the stems)
- Two to three Tablespoons of olive oil
- Sea salt to sprinkle
- Preheat oven to 350 F
- Wash the kale leaves, after removal of the thick stems, and then dry in a basket or a salad spinner if you have one.
- Line a cookie sheet on a baking tray and spread the kale leaves on top
- Sprinkle Olive Oil over the leaves followed by sea salt (to make the oil more even on the kale leaves, you can put the kale in a one gallon Zip Lock bag with olive oil and salt already mixed, and shake bag until the leaves are coated)
- Bake for 10-15 minutes (turn over halfway) or until crispy
- Keep kale chips at room temperature. They remain crispy for several days!
