Have you noticed kale chips are becoming commonplace at the health food store lately? A good fad food indeed! Kale is such a super nutritious food (good source of Protein, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Folate, Iron, Magnesium and Phosphorus, and a very good source of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, Calcium, Potassium, Copper and Manganese) even when baked. Kale chips are a great way to preserve some greens for the off season, or have around as a healthy snack food.
Here is what you need: Kale, Salt or Braggs, Olive oil.
Any kind of kale will work, but the curly types seem to give a nice fluffy texture and are easy to remove in bite size pieces. You need to remove any big stems or veins.
Toss the kale in olive oil.
Spread evenly on a cookie sheet. You can use parchment paper if you want, though it’s not necessary.
Spray on some Braggs or sprinkle with salt. You could also get creative here and try some parmesan, herbs or spices.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 min.
Kale chips should be crispy bright green, not blackened 🙂
