Crispy Kale Chips | Tasty Tuesday Blog Hop and #Recipe Swap!

I was grocery shopping last week and came across Kale Chips. They were about $7.00 for a small container! I had some major sticker shock. I’ve been really proactive lately about getting more fruits and veggies into our diets. So, I decided to take matters into my own hands and do a little research on making my own Kale Chips. Well, let me tell you its ridiculously easy and all you need to buy is a bunch of Kale which costs a couple of dollars. YEP!
Kale is SO GOOD for you. I’ve juiced it before, but I think this is my favorite way to eat it yet.
Once used primarily as a frilly garnish, kale is gaining recognition as an immunity-boosting, cancer-fighting cruciferous vegetable. Vitamins A, B-6, C, E and K are in kale’s list of essential micronutrients. In addition to its vitamin content, kale offers dietary fiber, calcium, iron, manganese and a host of antioxidant phytonutrients. Steamed, boiled or sauteed, kale provides a wealth of vitamins to support your health.

Crispy Kale Chips

Ingredients:
  1. 1 head of kale, washed and thoroughly dried
  2. 2 tablespoons olive oil
  3. Sea salt for sprinkling
Method:
  • Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F.
  • Remove the ribs from the kale and cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces. Lay on a baking sheet and toss with olive oil and sea salt. Bake until crisp, turning the leaves halfway through, about 20 minutes. {I turned the oven off after the recommended 20 minutes and left the kale in the oven to get really crispy like a chip}. 
  • Eat immediately! You won’t be able to stop! 

Rules:
Please only link up the web address to your recipe not your blog’s homepage. Please visit at least 1 other recipe that is linked, preferably the one above yours. Grab my nifty button on the right side bar. Most important of all HAVE FUN and Mangia!

  1. These look really good! I havent always wanted to make my own kale chips but never have. I once tried the same concept with spinach leaves but they were too thin and ended up breaking apart. Yours look delicious though. Thanks for the recipe. I can't wait to try this myself.

  2. They look really good! I've got to try that. I planned on buying organic kale this week to juice so maybe I need to get more for these chips. I wonder if the kids would like the taste?

  3. I have been dying to give some kale chips a try; I'm not too much on green foods, but I need to get the nutritional benefits. I'll be giving this a try soon!

  4. I love Kale in any way shape or form:) Planted it in my garden this year.
    Yeah Kale!!!!

  1. […] The crisp format is a sneaky way to get some vegetables into your children without them noticing. Kale is super-healthy, but most kids would rather give up their scooters than touch it. This crunchy snack might tempt them to go green. Go easy on the salt. Recipe here […]
