Kale Chips

Usually, I'm extremely wary of non-potato or non-corn tortilla chips but kale chips deliver a new, nutritional, and full flavored chip option. I overheard someone at the market last summer talking about how great they were and because I struggle to incorporate green leafy vegetables in my diet, I had been seriously thinking about cooking some up. It just so happens that last week in my Green Grocer produce share bag, the dark green velvety leaf arrived at my front door. I simply brushed them with olive oil, sprinkled them with sea salt and baked them for less than 10 minutes in the oven. Surprisingly, I really enjoyed these crispy, savory greens!

*Keep a close eye on these guys, they  turn to burnt dust very quickly if left in the oven for too long!


  1. I made them tonight. So great! Smaller pieces definitely cooked faster. Almost made some of that burnt dust you mention ;) but caught them in time. Thanks so much for sending me home with some!

  2. Glad you ate them, I can rest assure you attained your calcium goal for the day ( : Did you cook them on 425 or 375?
