Kale Chips

I have been hearing a lot about kale chips lately, so while I was at the store, I decided to pick up some kale and try it. 

First I washed the kale and made sure it was super dry.  I ripped it up, and placed the pieces on a cookie sheet.  I would suggest only using the curly part of the kale, and toss the fibrous steams.

I then drizzled the pieces with olive oil and sprinkled with salt.  Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.

They come out very light and crisp.  They were pretty yummy, but I don’t know if I was completely sold.  Hey, they are a healthy alternative to potato chips, but I think I still prefer my kale in my mashed potatoes.  Smile
