For non-believers these are some of the "hippiest" food items. Yes, they're chips made out of a really healthy green and a lot of hippies eat them but only because they're delicious! Kale chips are so easy to make and you can play around with different spices on them. If you're trying to eat healthier and you love potato chips, give these a try. They are obviously not potato-y but they do come out crispy, salty and flavorful and will definitely curb a chip craving. We have them as a side dish pretty often but they also make a great snack!
The recipe here is inspired by this recipe.
1 large bunch kale
1 Tbs olive oil
1 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder
1. Pre-heat oven to 350ºF and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Or use a silpat!
2. Remove the leaves from the thick stems on the kale and rip into chip-sized pieces. Place pieces in a gallon-sized plastic bag and add the olive oil, salt and seasonings, seal tightly and shake until uniformly covered.
3. Spread evenly on the cookie sheet and bake for about 15-20 minutes or until browned but not burnt. Enjoy immediately.
