Step Aside Potato Chips

27 Feb

So lately we have been trying to incorporate kale into our diets and it’s not that it has been a challenge to use the leafy green, but more that you have to get creative with kale. Kind of like how my mom would purée spinach, zucchini and other weird vegetables in our pasta sauce growing up because she knew that we wouldn’t willingly eat those foods. When we stumbled upon the kale chips recipe it seemed too good to be true, kale could be turned into something comparable to a potato chip? Once we popped them out of the oven, we were hooked. I made them again this morning, while I was making breakfast and I love the fact that this is the definition of a guilt free snack that takes less than 10 minutes to make. They are perfect and a serving is only 15 calories which is a small plate full of kale chips. We hope you enjoy them as much as we did! Also, let us know if you use any different kinds of seasoning.

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 5 minutes

Serving Size: 1

Ingredients

4 kale stalks

Sprinkle of salt

Olive oil or cooking spray

Aluminum foil

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

2. Rinse kale stalks and start to cut off the leaves from the stems.

3. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place the leaves on top. Proceed to spray the chips with Pam or olive oil and sprinkle a little bit of salt on top.

4. Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for about 5 minutes. The edges of the chips should be brown but not black. Once they are done take them out & enjoy!
