Kale Chips!

Earlier in August I read a blog post from The Nutrition Twins about Kale and all its wonderful health benefits and great flavor. They included a recipe for kale chips from Rachel Harvest, a nutrition intern.
Kale Chips

Serves 6


1 bunch kale
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt


Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F.
Line a non insulated cookie sheet with parchment paper.
With a knife or kitchen shears carefully remove the leaves from the thick stems and tear into bite size pieces.
Wash and thoroughly dry kale with a salad spinner.
Drizzle kale with olive oil and sprinkle with seasoning salt.
Bake until the edges brown but are not burnt, 10 to 15 minutes.

I tried this recipe out last night and loved the results. Crispy and delicious kale chips that are healthy too! I did not use the parchment paper since the olive oil keeps it from sticking. Rather then using a salad spinner, I washed the kale while whole and shook it dry by hand. Then I tore it into bite sized pieces and it turned out great.

Have fun and enjoy!
