Some people crave crunchy/salty foods while others crave sweets. I definitely crave the latter more often. Give me dark chocolate, cookies, cake or ice cream and I have a hard time stopping myself from eating the entire box, bag or container.
But that doesn’t mean that I don’t crave savory snacks on occasion and when I do, these kale chips are the perfect healthy alternative to curb my craving for something crunchy and salty.
I like using curly leaf kale as I think it makes for a crunchier chip—not to mention it's visually pleasing.
Remember to dry the kale thoroughly before tossing in the olive oil. A salad spinner is great for this but paper towels can also do the job.
This 3-step kale chip recipe is quick and easy and makes the perfect mid-day snack.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Wash and dry the kale.
- Remove the rib and cut into bite-size pieces.
- Toss kale in olive oil and place on a baking/cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
- Sprinkle with sea salt and bake for approximately 10-15 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Check the kale often to ensure the leaves don’t burn. Remove from oven, let cool and enjoy!
