"green chips"

kale is one of the healthiest leafy green vegetables you can eat. with all of the vitamins, antioxidants and cancer risk reducing properties these leafy greens should be a must in your diet 2-3 times per week. it can be added and disguised in many things like smoothies, marinara or pizza sauce, fresh vegetable/fruit juice or even most spinach based recipes kale may be substituted.

i was excited to hear that while on a date night (ethan was with nannie naenae) my mom made kale chips for ethan...and he loved them. this recipe has everything ethan loves...green, crunchy and salty. my mom came up with "green chips" as the name so in our house and hers that's what we call them and honestly he is a picky eater but loves these. asks for them almost daily.

this recipe is super easy and may cost all of about 2.00

1 bunch of kale
olive oil
sea salt

1. wash kale and spread out on paper towels to dry. the longer you let it dry the more successful it will roast without burning. turn oven temp to 250 degrees.

2. tear  into chip size pieces add to a large bowl. drizzle the kale with olive oil and toss with hands to ensure even coating.

3. place onto foil in a single layer for even cooking. sprinkle with sea salt and place in the 250 degree oven. i keep a close eye on them and let them roast till crispy sometimes turning once. approximately 10 minutes and this can depend on how wet they are so cooking times will vary.

these pics are the 
the end result...crispy crunchy goodness...
