Here’s another gem that I’ve come across on Pinterest, that I’m sure many of you have heard about a million times, the infamous kale chips. As you’ve probably noticed, kale is extremely trendy right now – you know you’re livin’ the good life when you can stay on top of veggie trends 😉. I tried to avoid kale for a while, because I was annoyed with how much people were obsessed with it – it was on every food post I saw on Instagram and every health nut was in love with it and always talking about this strange kaaaleeeeee.

Well, finally I gave in and decided to check out this Fancy vegetable. I think I’m afraid of following trends, because I was actually slightly embarrassed to buy kale. I’m over that now, kale chips are the bomb. Seriously, they were so good. I ate so many that it took me two months to make this post, because I was so sick of kale afterwards. Appetizing right? Now who wants the recipe…..honestly though, they were delicious!

Right now you’re probably feeling quite a bit less excited about kale chips than you thought you would be after reading this, but don’t fret, this recipe is super simple and I’m sure you’ll be surprised at how yummy these turn out, and not to mention they’re super healthy!

Kale Chips 

Classic simple and healthy oven-baked kale chips.

|     Prep Time: 5 minutes     |     Cook Time: 10 minutes     |     Total Time: 15 minutes     |

Serves 4




Ingredients:

1 bunch kale
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon course salt (or fine, or sea salt, whatever your preference is)

Directions:

Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Step 2: Wash and dry kale thoroughly. Remove the leaves from the stems, as the stems are quite bitter and won’t taste very good as chips. Break the leaves into bite size pieces and place in medium sized bowl. Add the olive oil and salt, then toss until oil and salt evenly cover the kale. If you have time, with clean hands, rub each leaf and spread the oil and salt evenly over each leaf (this is optional).

Step 3: Spread the leaves onto a cookie sheet (plain or lined with parchment paper) making sure that they are spread in a single layer. Place in the oven for 10-15 minutes until the leaves look a bit brown on the edges, they should be relatively dry at this point, but will dry out more once they are out of the oven.

And there you have it, easy, healthy, simple, kale chips. Maybe following the trend sometimes isn’t such a bad thing!
