Kale Chips

Yesterday was my youngest son's 12th birthday. Boy how time flies! He wanted a crawfish boil for his birthday so that is what we are doing today. My youngest son is also one of the pickiest eaters that I know. If it is a vegetable you can bet he is not going to eat it. This all changed a few days ago when I made Kale Chips. You know that stuff that looks like lettuce! He actually ate them. Not only did he eat them he asked for some in his lunch. I almost fainted. So I decided to post how to make Kale Chips in case you have some picky eaters of your own! ;)  It is best to make Kale Chips with fresh Organic Kale. The reason is Kale is one of those vegetables that can have high pesticide residue.

Kale Chips:

First, preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Next, you will need 1 large bunch of Kale. You will need to remove the hard stems and tear the leaves into "chip" size. Then place them in a bowl.

Then, with your hands massage 1 Tablespoon Olive oil and 1/2 teaspoon of Sea Salt into the leaves. (Now I made some with just Sea Salt. I also made some with Cumin, Garlic, and Sea Salt. Then some with Chili Powder and Sea Salt. Just play around and see which ones you like best.)

You will need to line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and put the kale on the cookie sheet. Make sure the kale does not overlap. You need to just have a single layer so they can get crispy like chips.

Put the kale in the oven for 8 to 10 minutes. Check after 8 minutes to see if they are slightly brown and crispy. Take them out and leave on pan for two minutes. And Voila' there you have it, Kale Chips. Hope you enjoy it. Till next time hope you have a blessed day!
