I go through phases with Kale. When I’m in the mood for it, I have it all the time and put it in everything (which I know Bill just loves), and then other times I just forget about it and wont have it for a month or more. When I was doing my 2nd round of Whole30 a couple months ago I was on a Kale kick. One of the things I would like to eat when I needed a salty, crunchy snack were Kale chips. They are so easy to make and you can adjust to your desired saltiness. I have tried buying packages of kale chips, both plain and flavored, and do not like them at all. They taste very fake and almost heavy with all the seasoning. Since they are so easy, I now always make my own. Plus it is healthier and better for my wallet!
- 1 bunch Kale, rinsed and patted dry
- Olive Oil
- Salt & Pepper
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Cut stems from kale and roughly chop leaves.
- Place kale leaves on parchemt or foil lined cookie sheet. Drizzle with olive oil. Mix the kale so that olive oil is evenly distributed. Add salt and pepper to taste (I like a lot of salt!)
- Bake in oven for 10-15 minutes. Take out when at deisred crispiness (I take mine out when they are crisp and the edges start to brown.
