Easy Homemade Kale Chips
All hail Kale.
Kale is one of the healthiest veggies around town. I try to have it regularly in my diet in order to receive the fantastic health benefits it has to offer. You can have it in so many different ways. Of course, one of the best ways to have it is raw or lightly steamed. But another way I enjoy the flavor and nutrients from Kale is to bake it to make crispy chips.
There are a few companies that provide packaged Kale chips sold at your local health store but they can be very pricey or loaded with sodium. So make your own. All you have to do is preheat your oven to 350 degrees, wash your Kale stalk and dry thoroughly, rip off small pieces (don’t have them too big), line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, add kale, drizzle 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil (or coconut oil), toss and mix with hands then bake for 10-15 minutes. Turn oven off. Refrain from eating right away. Leave in the oven for another 10 minutes to “dehydrate” or you can leave them out. You can also top with black pepper, himalayan sea salt, nutritional yeast or paprika for added taste.
From the garden to your oven, this is a low calorie snack that’s easy to make and yummy to eat. Lays chips are so last season.
