Tonight’s pre-dinner snack was one of the boyfriend and my faves – kale chips. Every time we have these, I still have to remind myself that I am eating a green leafy vegetable because they are SO GOOD. Salty, crispy, garlicky – they’re as good as a potato chip, I promise!
…and toss the leaves lightly with olive oil. Not too much or they will get soggy, but enough so there’s a light coating – about a teaspoon or two. Transfer into a baking pan and shake on salt and pepper. Then you can really add any seasoning you want. We always add a healthy coat of garlic powder, and sometimes parmesan cheese.
Then bake at 350 degrees (or, if your oven is on crack like mine, 325) for about 10 minutes or until they start to get crispy around the edges. My camera isn’t the greatest and wouldn’t focus enough to portray the crispiness accurately, so here’s Kath’s pic of a finished chip.
I swear, you will start to CRAVE these. And you don’t have to feel guilty because you’re getting your veggies in! And yes, family, Bob eats these and LOVES them! 🙂
