Kale Chips

(Picture-less for now, but try to imagine crisp green kale leaves happily baked on a baking sheet.)

No to be preachy, but kale is truly a magical wonder-veggie, and we should all eat more of it.

What better way than making them taste like potato chips?

1 bunch bakes up to a neat little bowl of chips that you and yours will happily gobble up and then ask for more.

Kale Chips

1 bunch of kale (any kind–they’re all good for you!)

1 tbsp olive oil

salt to taste

1. Preheat the oven to 350F.

2. Remove the leaves from the stem, and tear into chip-sized pieces (if desired).

3. Rinse and dry your kale leaves.

4. Toss the leaves with the olive oil.

5. Season with salt to taste.

6. Arrange the leaves on a baking sheet in a single layer.

7. Bake for 10-20 minutes, or until desired crispness (not browned!  brown = bitter).


P.S. I made kale chips for my class as their “treat” (ha!  That’ll teach ’em!).  If a group of 3rd and 4th graders can walk away loving kale chips, so will you.
