crispy-kale-snacks

We love discovering simple recipes for food products that are staples of our grocery shopping list. Take kale chips for example — a bag of these crunchy snacks always seem to make it into our shopping bag, but we never realized until now how easy it is to whip up a batch of these chips at home. A special thanks to A Little Yumminess for turning us onto these delectable homemade bites.

Ingredients:
Kale
Olive Oil
Salt

Method:
1. Trim the kale leaves from their stems. Tear the leaves into slightly larger than potato chip-sized pieces. Keep in mind that they will shrink significantly.

2. Wash and get the kale as dry as you can. A salad spinner comes in handy for this step. Be sure to pat the leaves thoroughly with kitchen towels to get them extra dry.

3. Toss the dry kale lightly with olive oil and spread on a single layer on a cookie sheet. Do not add salt yet or they will sog up in the oven.

4. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 10-15 minutes. Check them frequently from about 10 minutes on. When done, they will be bright green, totally dry and very crisp to the touch. You do not want them to brown.

5. Sprinkle with salt and any other seasonings of your choice. Toss well and enjoy!
