Baked Kale Chips

Kale is a nutrient-dense vegetable that’s low in calories, and is a good source of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K, calcium, manganese, lutein, and iron. Baked kale is crispy and delicious, and is a great substitute for unhealthy packaged snacks.

Baked Kale Chips

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups Kale leaves
  • 1 tsp. Olive Oil
  • Several pinches Sea Salt

Instructions:

  1. Wash and dry the kale. Tear or cut the leaves into pieces, cutting out the tough center stem.
  2. Toss the leaves with the olive oil, and then sprinkle on a few pinches of sea salt.
  3. Lay the leaves on a cookie sheet and bake at 350° F for about 10 minutes.
  4. Careful, though: If you bake them too briefly they won’t get crispy, but go too long and they’ll be burned. Check them at 9 minutes, and if they’re not crispy yet, give them a couple more minutes and check again.
