Come Kale Or High Water

July 6, 2015 by admin

IMG_1266We are always looking for ways to introduce nutritious snacking option to our kids.

Kale chips are a low calorie, super easy, and very tasty choice that you can make at home in less than ½ hour.

Pick up a good bunch of Kale from your local farmer’s market or favorite grocery store.  Wash the leaves and then dry all of them thoroughly.  Next, cut the leafy green away from the stalk.  But don’t just throw out those stalks!  You can save them for soup stock!  Or chop them down and saute them into your next stir fry.  Or feed them to bunnies!IMG_1263

We hear kale is pretty easy to grow in your garden.  We haven’t tried that yet, but we’ll let you know when we do!

Tip1: If you fold the kale along the stalk, you can easily cut straight down to separate both halves from the stem.

Use your fingers to rip down the leafy parts into chip size pieces and put them into a large bowl.  Toss theKale with olive oil and coarse kosher sea salt and set aside.  Line a cookie sheet with tinfoil or parchment paper.

Tip2: We put a coat of olive oil on our tinfoil.

Distribute the Kale in an even layer on the cookie sheet.  Cook at 350degrees for 10 minutes.  Rotate your tray and perhaps flip your kale.  Cook for an additional 10 minutes or until you’ve got your desired crispness.

Enjoy!
