The Infamous Super-Kale

As a religious shopper at Trader Joe’s, I kept hearing about kale chips. Frankly, I had never even tried kale before, better yet heard of it. However, I am always open to tasting new foods, so I decided to see what the hype was all about and try them. I took it upon myself to make my own kale chips because the store bought package is loaded with salt.

On a rainy Sunday with time to kill, I bought TJ’s rinsed pack of fresh kale that conveniently had a kale chip recipe on the back! Below I will provide instructions on how to MYO!

What you will need:
Kale (obviously)
Olive oil
baking tray
oven
Sea salt
Parchment paper or tin foil
Plastic baggy

Instructions:

1. Preheat oven to 250.
2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or tin foil
3. Place desired amount of kale in a plastic zip lock baggy
4. Measure 2 tbsp. of olive oil and pour in baggy. Zip up baggy and shake/spread oil so that all of the kale becomes saturated.
5. Add a pinch of sea salt to the baggy and shake
6. When oven is preheated to 250, place kale on baking sheet. Make sure the pieces are spread apart.
7. Place baking sheet in oven for 34 minutes. Half way through, flip kale pieces over.
8. After 34 minutes or until kale is crispy, remove baking tray from oven and let cool for ten minutes.
9. Enjoy!

Kale chip are a great alternative for salty snack food when you get that late night craving or need that salty fix! You can make a whole bag and store for later, or a small amount for a daytime snack!

Another delicious way to prepare kale is with chicken broth. Since it can be bitter, the broth lightens it up a bit but still provides the super food nutrients!
