Kale chips in under 30 minutes

This weekend I had a real bad craving for potato chips.  As I was looking around my kitchen for something to snack on, I noticed I had a bag of kale that I hadn’t touched in a week.  I’m not one to waste food, and with a little research and experimentation, I came up with a quick and easy snack – kale chips.

I love the dark green color of kale.  And that means it's good for you!

In under 30 minutes I had transformed the bag of lush kale into crunch, salty, spicy chips that taste amazing!  And it falls into my paleo lite diet.

What you need:  fresh kale (remove leaves from stems), sea salt, pepper and any seasonings of your choice (I went with chipotle pepper), olive oil, baking sheets and some foil.

In less than 30 minutes you have a great, paleo lite snack to enjoy!

Here’s the easy steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 270 degrees
  2. In a large mixing bowl add kale leaves, salt, pepper, seasoning and drizzle of olive oil.  Toss it well.
  3. Lay out foil on baking sheets (makes for easy clean up) and spread out the kale leaves.
  4. Slide into the oven and bake.  For me, it took about 15-20 minutes until the leaves were dry, crispy and crunchy (so check on them once you hit about 15 minutes).  The edges of the leaves should be turning slightly golden brown.
  5. Cool and place into a sealable container.  Enjoy!

If you make them, let me know how you mixed it up.
