Kale Chips by Janis

  1. Get some kale (organic is best and the greener the better)
  2. Cut out the rib (vein) in the leaf – it is thick and doesn’t bake as fast as the rest of the leaf
  3. Tear kale leaves into smaller pieces
  4. Take a Tupperware (or whatever) container and add olive oil and salt along with kale leaves (around 1/2 a tablespoon is all that is needed)-it depends on how big the Tupperware is and how much kale is in it. Close Tupperware and shake, shake, shake that kale, oil and salt so that the leaves are nicely coated.
  5. Get a cookie sheet (or a pizza pan – the one with holes in it – that’s what i have currently been using) and put a sheet of wax paper on it.
  6. Oven should be heated to 350F
  7. Place pieces of kale on sheet. best if leaves don’t touch each other.
  8. Shove in oven and take out after 6 minutes.
  9. at that point turn the leaves over and individually sprinkle a little Parmesan cheese on each piece.
  10. Put back in oven for around 5 minutes – need to watch so that the pieces don’t burn (they may get a little blackened on some ends.)
  11. Remove from oven and put on a paper towel to absorb any excess oil (although there is very little).
  12. Eat and enjoy!

The kale is crispy and light (just like potato chips) and tastes surprisingly good.
