I have been wanting to try this recipe for a while but thanks to Josh Kapelman bringing it up as we brainstormed for the recent TCS Healthy Week cooking demo I finally got the push to try it!
We followed a simple recipe from epicurious.com using basically two ingredients: kale & olive oil. Everyone LOVED them.
Kale is a nutritional powerhouse. Packed with vitamin K, vitamin A, and vitamin C, among others, this leafy green will give you a nutritional boost better than most supplements. It is listed as the top rated food on Whole Food’s Aggregate Nutrient Density Index based on its high level of nutrients per calorie.
Make Your Own Kale Chips
Recipe from epicurious.com
-Olive oil (1-2 teaspoons)
-Salt and pepper (sprinkle)
– Sesame seeds (optional)
Preheat oven to 250° and begin preparing kale. Rinse and dry fresh kale leaves and tear into small pieces (do not include the thick stems). Spread over baking tray with about 1 teaspoon olive oil and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Bake for about 30 minutes or until chips have reached their desired crispness. I like to sprinkle sesame seeds on top when they are just about done baking.
