I Love Kale Chips


Yes, I sure do!  And they're so easy to make.  A former nutrition professor of mine would give the class all sorts of tips on how to add more vegetables to their home menus, especially for those students with children.  She said that her kids loved potato chips, and one day, she decided to give them kale chips instead.  To her surprise, they loved them, and kale chips became a staple of their snack diet.  Well, I made them at home and fell in love with them too!  Now they're one of my favorite work snacks.

So simple.  Try them!


RECIPE

Rinse 1 bunch of kale and pat dry with a paper towel.
 

Tear into small pieces (approx. 2" x 2") and set aside in a large bowl.
  

Pour 1-2 tbsp. of grapeseed oil into a small, shallow cup or dish. 
  

Dipping your fingers in the oil, lightly rub into each piece of kale.  Lay pieces on a baking sheet.  (This can be a bit time-consuming, but tossing the kale in oil leads to really soggy chips.)
  

After you have filled the baking sheet, lightly season with salt and/or pepper.
  

Bake at 250 degrees for 30 minutes.
