Who needs potato chips?

I first tasted kale chips just a year ago. One of my kids made them—and so quickly I completely missed the process! One minute fresh kale was in the salad spinner; a few minutes later, a bowl of kale chips was being passed around the dinner table. Yum!

This year, thanks to the generosity of a friend and kale grower, I tried making them myself. They are SO good and SO easy, I offer the recipe—in case you haven’t tried making them.

  • Wash and spin (or pat dry) fresh kale.
  • Separate the leaves from the stems (which are then discarded).
  • Toss in a small amount of olive oil.
  • Spread leaves on a cookie sheet and bake 10-15 minutes at 350°.  You’ll know when they are done because they will be small and crisp.
  • Sprinkle with kosher salt (or any kind of salt) as soon as you take them out of the oven.
  • Cool and enjoy.
