Ok, since the Grilled Kale Caesar Salad recipe from last week got such a great response, I am posting my Kale Chip recipe today! These are so easy! They only take minutes to make and are a great snack. Make them up for a midday boost, to replace popcorn while you watch a movie, or for a snack pack for a trip to the zoo or a picnic. I can eat an entire bunch of Kale Chips on my own. They are delicious and so good for you! Enjoy!
Optional: Lemon zest
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Wash and dry the kale. Strip it from the stalk into large pieces. Spread into a single layer on a baking sheet (or two). Drizzle with olive oil and bake for about 12-15 minutes until kale has crisped up and the edges are a bit brown. Remove from oven and season to taste with salt.* Top with a fresh sprinkling of lemon zest.
*I recommend seasoning after baking because the kale shrinks up so much it's hard to gauge how much salt to use!
