Baked Kale Chips

Have you jumped on the Kale bandwagon yet?  Just recently I made my first batch of Kale Chips and had pretty low expectations on how they would taste but after one bite I was hooked.  Even my husband is crazy about them.

Here's what I use:

Olive Oil
Seasoning {I use Mrs. Dash}
Garlic Salt

Remove leaves from stem and tear into bite size pieces.

Give the kale a good rinse.
Then use a salad spinner to remove as much water as possible.

Just to make sure all the water is gone, I lay the kale out on a towel and pat dry.
You don't want the leaves wet otherwise you end up with steamed kale instead of kale chips.

Spread the kale on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, then generously sprinkle with seasoning and garlic salt.

Bake at 350° for 10-15 minutes.
Be sure to keep an eye on the kale while baking.
There is a fine line between floppy kale chips and charred kale chips.
The final result should be nice and crunchy.

Let cool and enjoy!

Hmmm, maybe I need to give these another try. We had them a while back and they were not great. I'll try them again and use your recipe :)

Thanks for the recipe Emily! We haven't tried them, but we pretty much love all greens here - so it sounds fun!
