Snack time.

Lately we've been making kale chips on a weekly basis as a morning or afternoon snack. I either purchase a bunch of large kale leaves or the plastic package of baby kale. I much prefer the latter. Not so much because of taste, but more because of ease in preparation - no bugs to pick off.

To make these yummy, nutrient packed chips, all you need is some olive oil, sea salt (other seasoning if desired) and kale. Put a couple large handfuls of kale into a bowl. Drizzle on some olive oil and toss to lightly coat all the leaves. Spread on parchment lined cookie sheets, sprinkle with salt and spices (we like garlic powder on ours) and bake for 10 - 15 minutes at 350 degrees. Check it after ten minutes and add additional time if needed. Just be sure to watch it closely as it goes from almost done to burnt pretty quickly.

I love kale chips. I eat them often. Thanks for the tip on using parchment paper. I've had some stick to the pan even though it was oiled.
