Kale Chips

As I've mentioned before, my baby is now absolutely crazy about kale chips.  And by kale chips, I mean pieces of kale that have been washed, dried, tossed in olive oil and salt, then baked until dried and crispy.  It's that simple, but soooo good!  And don't tell Peanut, but it's super healthy, too!  Thanks again to my friend Brittany for introducing us to another favorite tasty snack.  Here's how Mama makes it:

Kale Chips

- 1 bunch kale; chopped, washed, and dried (I used some pre-wahed bagged kale leftover from making soup)
- 1 T. olive oil
- 1 t. salt, or to taste (or try other spices, like seasoned salt, garlic, or cayenne)


1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  Using a knife or kitchen sheers, cut the leaves from the thick stems.  Cut kale into bite-sized pieces, wash thoroughly, and dry.

2.  Drizzle with olive oil, then toss to distribute.  Sprinkle with salt.  Lay kale pieces in a single layer on baking sheet and bake 10-15 minutes until crisp but not burnt.

guess what little hand grabbed a handful of kale
and shoved it in her mouth?
