Kale Chips @ Livligahome

Sometimes you just need something crunch and a little salty for a snack. I have found a great solution. It is VERY healthy, yummy to eat and totally satisfying. The best part is the whole family loves them. I have even served them when guests have come over for dinner. The only thing you have to be aware of is that pieces of the kale can stick to your teeth so you need to promise to do a "teeth check" after you have finished your chips!

Kale chips are very easy to make. The hearty leafed green is well suited to baking in the oven. To make the chips this is all you need:

Bunch of Kale
Olive Oil cooking spray
Pinch of Sea Salt

Here are the directions for preparation:
  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. With a knife or kitchen shears carefully remove the leaves from the thick stems and tear into chip-sized pieces. Wash and thoroughly dry kale with a salad spinner. Spray kale with olive oil cooking spray and sprinkle with sea salt.
  3. Bake until the edges brown but are not burnt, 10 to 15 minutes.
  4. Serve in a basket. One cup of kale chips is about 36 calories.
This is a great snack or appetizer. It is a make-a-head recipe which is good to have on hand for holiday weekends. Enjoy & Live Vibrant!
