Family Circle magazine are one of my favorite magazines to read. The magazine is always filled with great topics, recipes, and articles. In the November 2013 edition, they featured a simple recipe on how to make Kale Chips that replace potato chips. I love Kale and a lot of celebrities today are drinking kale juice concoctions and I for one enjoy them in my smoothies. Aside from Kale, I have always enjoyed eating chips. Chips have always been a crunchy and salty flavored snack, but I realize it isn’t healthy. Seeing the benefits of Kale and having this magazine with the recipe was an inspiration to make them. If any of you like snacking on seaweed sold at Costco or at your local grocery store, the Kale Chips are a close resemblance or reminder of seaweed that has the crunch and flavor. Enjoy the recipe and your Kale Chips. Another option is to add some dried nuts and berries to the Kale Chips as it would be a fun healthy snack option.
This video also shows you how to make kale chips. It’s super easy!
Pre-heat oven to 300 degrees
1 one large bath of Kale
1 tablespoon Olive Oil
1/8 teaspoon salt
In a large bowl, toss 10 cups kale leaves (stems removed, torn into small pieces).
Add 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1/8 teaspoon salt.
Place on baking sheets in a single layer.
Bake at 300 degrees for 25 minutes or until crispy.
Remove from baking sheets with a spatula.
Add 2 tablespoons Parmesan (optional) and serve.
Family Circle recommends a metal spatula to scoop up the kale chips however, I used a non-stick spatula and baking pan and the kale popped off easily.
