Roasted Kale Chips

Think your kids won't eat greens, think again. We've cooked these up a few times, and the kids consistently ask for seconds and even thirds. Part of the reason I think they go over so well is all in the name. For some reason, simply calling them "chips" was enough to get our kids excited. It probably didn't hurt to see and hear us gushing over how tasty there were the first time we made them.

My friend first posted about making these on Facebook and they sounded so delicious we had to try it out. It is unbelievably easy to make and can be used for other types of greens. We've also made baby spinach chips that were great too.

Roasted Kale Chips
1 bunch of kale
1-2 Tbsp. olive oil
salt to taste

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Wash kale well and remove center rib. Tear into small pieces. Toss in bowl with oil and salt. Spread out kale evenly on large cookie sheet. Roast in oven until it starts to brown on the edges and is crunchy (about 6-8 minutes).

  1. These are really yummy... I have to admit the "chips" part in the Kale chips title intrigued me as well:)
