Why You Should Give Kale Chips a Chance
If you’re reading this, that means you decided to read this Monday’s post even though it had “kale” in the title- so thanks. I promise it’ll be worth it.
First of all- no, kale chips do not taste like Lays potato chips. If you’re seriously craving Lays, these will probably not satisfy that craving. I’m a big advocate of “everything in moderation.” That being said, Kale chips are more for when you want a healthy, but still good, snack. I make them when I have a lot of homework to do, because they’re salty and crispy and I don’t feel guilty when I eat a ton of them over the course of my 3-hour study span.
The Wonders of Kale:
low in calories
high in fiber
lots of potassium, vitamin C and B6 (heart health!)
Here is an easy version of the recipe for ya-
- Pour a glass of wine, take a sip, add a little more. (unless you’re making these for studying…)
- Preheat the oven to 300
- Make sure the Kale is very dry (if you had to wash it, it needs to be left to dry or blow-dried if you don’t wanna wait for it to dry…not kidding…)
- Cut the center stems out of the middle of the kale and throw them away
- Rip the kale into little “chips”
- Spread the kale chips on a cookie sheet
- Use your hands to rub some olive oil on the chips (only use about 3/4 tablespoon)
- Salt and pepper ’em
- Pop them in the oven for 10 minutes.
- Take them out, mix them around a little, then back in for 8-10 more minutes.
- Then you’re set! Enjoy, and let me know if you like them!! 🙂
P.S. I know they look like rabbit food. I promise they don’t taste like it.
P.S.S. They pair very well with red wine. Big fan.
P.S.S.S. Are you supposed to add another S or another P when you do multiple P.S.’s?
P.S.S.S.S. (or P.P.P.P.S.) Kale is pretty cheap; usually $0.99-$1.99 for a bundle
