 ~ crispy kale chips ~

Looking for a healthy alternative to potato chips? I LOVE potato chips with sandwiches, and somehow the little baby carrots just don’t make a good substitute. These crispy kale chips are just the thing. Good for you, crispy, and a little garlicy. Sprinkle on a little salt, and mmmmm! Only make what you are going to eat the same day, these don’t keep well, and tend to lose their crispiness over night.

1 lb curly kale, washed patted dry and de-ribbed

3 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 large garlic clove, minced

sea salt

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Toss kale with the olive oil, and garlic. Spread on two baking sheets. Sprinkle with salt. Bake for 15 minutes or until chips are crisp. Serve with THIS dressing for dipping!

    Looks amazing Melissa – I’m just gutted because I’ve never seen kale for sale in France before. Do you think one could use something like Swiss Chard?

      I bet you could! Pretty much the same texture. I think it would be worth a try 🙂

      Charles, I don’t think swiss chard will work, kale is pretty tough and fibery, sturdier than chard.

    Kale is very easy to grow and here in the Puget Sound area of Washington state, it grows all winter. I wish I could send some Kale to you Charles. Maybe i could send you Kale seeds and you can become a millionaire selling Kale in France!
