Kale Chips

I have to be honest, I tried this Kale Chips recipe not knowing what kind of reaction I was going to get from my family.  Much to my surprise and delight, the chips never even made it to a storage container!  They loved these crispy, crunchy, and best of all … HEALTHY … treats!

Kale Chips

10 1/2 ounces trimmed curly kale, torn into 2-inch pieces (about 14 cups)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Rinse kale; drain well, and pat dry with paper towels.  Place in a large bowl.  Drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt.  Toss well.  Place kale in a single layer on three (16×13) baking sheets.

Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.  (Watch closely to prevent leaves from burning.)  Cool completely.  Store in an airtight container.  Serves 4 (servings size:  1 cup).

*For a different flavor, try sprinkling the kale with grated Parmesan, red pepper flakes, or sweet paprika before baking.
