Kale Chips. OMG. You Must Make.
I LOVE salty crunchy snacks! Here is my favorite guilt free option…
- Preheat an oven to 350 degrees. You may want to line a non insulated cookie sheet with parchment paper.
- Remove the leaves from the thick stems and tear into bite size pieces. Wash and thoroughly dry kale with a salad spinner.
- I really like the lacinato kale but curly kale works great too!
- Drizzle kale with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt… massage the oil into the leaves. You can add any seasoning! Garlic?
- Bake until the edges brown but are not burnt, 10 to 15 minutes.
I love to sprinkle mine with brewers yeast aka nutritional yeast. Don’t know what that is? Click here It’s delicious and nutritious!
