Baked Kale Chips are Nutritious and Even Delicious

Chips can actually be made from kale? Kale chips taste good? In our house, the answers to these questions are “yes” and “yes.” I first read about kale chips at Simply Sugar and Gluten Free, and was amazed at how easy it was to make them. Since I already knew that I liked kale, I decided to give this idea a try. The result was a light and crunchy chip with a great flavor. It is a great alternative to potato chips, as well as a nice sandwich topper. The picture is of my lunch the other day – I had a side of the kale chips with my turkey sandwich on yeast-free, sugar-free pita bread from Chatila’s Bakery.

To prepare, I did the following: wash and dry the kale, and pull the kale off of the stalks. Rip the kale into bite-size pieces. Place kale on a cookie sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with kosher salt and freshly ground pepper. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes, until kale is lightly browned.

I hope you give this recipe a try whether you are a kale lover or novice. You won’t be disappointed!
