Level of Difficulty: the easiest
Pots/Pans Used: maybe a bowl
1 bushel of kale
1 TBL olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
Crispy kale chips is my new favorite snack. I would totally recommend sneaking these into the movies or even replacing your daily potato chip fix with these babies. Oh my goodness... they are so fantastic and you can enjoy then guilt free! On a side note, I personally am not a big fan of prepackaged and cut kale. Whenever I've had it I was completely unsatisfied and I've heard other people say the same thing. Just a tip....
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Rinse and dry the kale well. Then rip up the kale into bite-size pieces. In a large bowl, massage the olive oil and salt into the kale. You may want to add or use less salt depending on your taste level. First time I made this recipe I used 1 tsp salt and it was a bit of a salty overload. 1/2 tsp was about right for me. Spread the kale on a baking sheet so that none of the pieces are on top of each other. Bake for about 18 minutes until really crispy. That's it! Woohoo!
