I love finding sneaky ways to feed myself vegetables that I’m not crazy about, and let me tell you, kale chips really take the cake in this category.
Greg and I went to my parents’ house on labor day, and any trip to my parents house means that we will return with food. This time, we brought home a huge beautiful bag of kale from my mom’s garden.
I’ve known about kale chips for a while, but I’ve always been a bit of a skeptic. I figured now was the time to give it a go. The recipe is really simple. All you need is:
- Olive oil or olive oil cooking spray
- Salt and/or garlic (I used both)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit. Cut the kale off the stem and tear it into bite sized pieces. Place the pieces onto a baking sheet, and don’t let any pieces overlap. This allows the kale to become crispy.
Spray the kale lightly with olive oil, add salt and/or garlic, and bake for about 4 minutes. Remove from the oven and let them sit for a minute.
Now, there’s really no way for me to make the finished product look like anything other than a pile of slightly darker looking kale. However, I can show you other proof of their deliciousness.
This is my husband Greg. He is a man who would probably have no problem living on frozen pizza and ramen, and I think he actually groaned when I told him I was making kale chips. However, he is usually willing to try anything that I make.
So there you have it.
