i love chips.

Anyone tried Kale Chips?

Well, for starters, if you are a true chip lover (like myself) these little suckers really shouldn’t have the word ‘chip’ in their name… For the purposes of this blog we’ll call them Kale Crisps.  Anyway, buy a bunch of Kale (it’s by the lettuce).  Chop it up (the leafy part – remove all of the thick spiny parts).

Toss it in a bowl with about 2 tablespoons of Olive Oil.

Spread it out in one layer on a cookie sheet.  Sprinkle with salt, pepper and some grated parm.

Throw it into a preheated oven (350 degrees) until it’s crispy and dried out.  If you’re going by looks- still green but shriveled.  Not brown (see above).  This is a picture of Kale Crisps cooked 5 minutes too long.  20 minutes was too long, if that helps anyone.

Scoop it up (feels like gathering some fall leaves off the lawn).  Put it in a bowl.  Snack on the pumpkin-seed-tasting Crisps.  Remind yourself that this is a healthier snack than the real chips you want to be nibbling on as you prepare dinner.  Enjoy a 2nd scoop of Blue Bell for dessert tonight. After all, you ate Kale instead of chips!
