Kale chips are my new obsession. I am looking for new ways to get more leafy greens in my diet. The problem is, aside from spinach and typical "salad greens" (romaine, spring mix, etc)...I am not really crazy about most leafy greens.
About a month ago, I was at my mother's house and she had a big storage bags full of her homemade kale chips recipe and I just fell in love! My mother had made them with just olive oil and sea salt and they were delicious, but I was looking for something with a bit more flavor. I made these the other day and this is my new favorite snack! I actually used an entire bunch of kale, thinking I would have plenty left over for a snack the next day...but ended up eating the entire batch in 1 day!
Best of all - it couldn't be simpler to make!
Experiment with your favorite seasonings to find your favorite kale chips recipe! Use barbecue seasoning to make your own BBQ chips. Hubby out of town? Got nuts with garlic powder!
