At first I was skeptical about these kale chips…I knew they were really healthy but would they really taste good? I found that the answer is (happily) YES!! High in vitamins K, A, C, manganese & fiber, these chips can easily replace my potato chips, at least occasionally! Maybe “guilt free super chips” would be a more appropriate name!
We made them in two batches: the olive oil batch and the olive oil spray batch. I highly recommend using real olive oil. We all thought they were literally a gazillion times tastier!!
- 1 bunch organic kale
- 1 Tbsp olive oil or olive oil spray
- sea salt to taste
Preheat oven to 350 F. Rinse & pat dry kale leaves. Remove leafy part from stem and rip into chip size pieces.
If using olive oil (recommended method): put all the leaves into a bag, drizzle in olive oil, add seasonings and shake well. Spread out on cookie sheet. If using olive oil spray: arrange kale on the cookie sheet, lightly spray all the “chips” & season with salt.
Cook 15-20 minutes. Watch carefully that they do not burn. As soon as the edges turn brown, they are done and ready to enjoy!
(P.S. to avoid possible embarrassment, check your teeth after eating these chips! I learned the hard way! hahaha)
