I admit I don’t like dark, leafy green veggies. So when I learned from Katie Barreira, former Special Fork cooking newbie blogger, about kale chips, I was sold! What wouldn’t taste good turned into a chip? Great taste, good nutrition and easy to boot. It’s a win-win.
4 kale leaves
About 2 tablespoons olive oil
Heat oven to 350° F. Trim stems and lay kale leaves out flat on a baking sheet in a single layer. Use a pastry brush to brush leaves with olive oil and bake until crisp, 10 to 15 minutes, depending on the variety of kale. While still warm, sprinkle with salt. Makes 4 large chips. Recipe adapted from Katie Barreira.
Party Pleaser tip from Katie: “I like to stand these attractive crisps in a glass and put them out for snacking. They double as décor, until eaten up!”
