Yummy and Kale Go Together


I've decided I'm the next Rachael Ray up in here so I'm sharing a recipe. Or maybe I had two a few people ask about the kale chips I made the other day. And yes I promise they are actually good!

First, take yourself to the grocery store and get a bunch of kale. Not a bunch as in "a lot" but a bound together group of kale stalk/leaves/whatever they are. Second, be shocked that it's only 99 cents for all that kale. Next, tear the leaves into chip size pieces. Throw a few tablespoons of EVOO or coconut oil in a bowl. *Optional: Add a few tablespoons of low sodium soy sauce to the oil. Toss the leaves in the oil mixture until they pretty evenly coated. Lay the "chips" on a baking sheet making sure they are not overlapping. You can add some sea salt here if you would like then pop those babies in the oven for 7-10 minutes at 350 degrees (8 minutes was just perfect in our oven). Once you take them out and they cool a little, they are super crispy and tasty. If yours are not as crunchy as you like leave them in a little longer. Just be sure to check them often so they don't burn. There's a fine line between crispy and charred. 

Mine turned out great but I have heard that if your kale starts out a little bitter the chips are not going to be good. Kind of like picking the right bag of clementines. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose I guess.

I really need to give these a try... they sound so simple to make! Hopefully I don't get a bitter batch the first time around!
