Baked Kale Chips

Our CSA share sadly ended last week. We really enjoyed having a diverse box of fresh veggies every week. One of my favorite snacks that came out of our CSA box was kale chips. They are quick, easy, and healthy! We have made different variations with oils and spices. (One of my favorites was using sesame oil and a splash of soy sauce).

baked kale chipes

1 bunch of kale
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon of cumin (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 350°F.  Carefully remove the kale leaves from the thick stems with kitchen shears or a knife. (You can leave the smaller stems).

2. Wash and dry the leaves thoroughly with a salad spinner. (If they are not dry they won’t be as crispy when you bake them!) Toss kale with olive oil, salt, and cumin.

3. Spread the oil coated kale in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the kale is crispy. The edges should be brown but not burnt.

Enjoy as a side to your favorite sandwich! What kind of veggies do you like to make into healthy chips?
