Healthy Snack: Kale Chips

I had seen kale chips made on the Food Network a while back and have been wanting to try making my own version ever since.  Since I have finally been home  this weekend and we don’t have house guests, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to try a couple new things out in the kitchen (we are also in the process as we speak of making fresh vanilla bean ice cream and I’ll be letting you all know how it turns out).  For now, you’re stuck with kale chips.  Okay not stuck, but ice cream is probably more appealing to most people!  If you’re one of those that tries to reach for a healthy snack like myself, then keep reading…

This is about as simple as simple can get.  All you need is fresh kale, a little bit of olive oil and salt and pepper.  Preheat the oven  to 300°.  Wash and dry the kale (make sure its really dry).  Separate the leaves from the spine of the leaf and rip into large sections.  Place kale sections in a large bowl and toss with olive oil until lightly coated.  Spread leaves out on large baking sheet in a single layer.  Don’t crowd the leaves too much or they will steam and not get crispy.  Sprinkle with some sea salt and fresh ground black pepper before placing the trays in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until the leaves are crispy.  Enjoy!
