Kale chips - who knew?

See also

Okay, so I discovered which could quite possibly be my new favorite snack. Kale chips. Kale, that dark green leafy vegetable we usually avoid when we pick up the iceberg lettuce, is chock full of vitamins A, C and K, and is low in calories. Admittedly, the olive oil in this recipe does add a few, but you don't need much, only a tablespoon or two. Kale is also naturally salty, so very little salt needs to be added to make these the perfect healthy and low cal movie snack.

Just be careful, they're addictive.

  • 1 bunch kale
  • 2 T olive oil
  • salt to taste

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Prepare a cookie sheet with a cooling rack covered with parchment or brown paper (trust me, this will keep you from having to stir twice. Wash the kale well, remove center stems and chop into 1.5-2 inch pieces. Toss in the olive oil until well coated. Spread in single layer on parchment (I had to do it in two batches). Bake 30 -35 minutes, stirring once. Salt to taste.

NOTE: Be really careful and taste it first due to the natural sodium in the kale. You might not need much, depending on how much of a salt freak you are.

Pour into a bowl and enjoy with your favorite movie.
