Baked Kale Chips

I have been reading the kale chips, the queen of the healthy snacks craze on many blogs. I had planted kale this year, so this is one of the recipes I tried with kale.

First, I washed the leaves thoroughly and cut the stems off. I also cut the rather thicker midribs off. Then cut them in squares.

I sprayed them with a little bit of olive oil. You can also use this method to evenly oil leafy greens like kale. I actually baked few batches. Maybe the type of the kale I had in my backyard has already salty flavor. When I added salt, the taste of the first batch was too salty for me. So in the latter batches, I sprinkled just a few pinches. I laid the pieces on a natural parchment paper on an oven tray.

Then I baked them for about 10-15 minutes on 350F. The kids liked them as well. I couldn’t say they loved them but definitely took more bites than one.
