Kale chips are a quick and delicious way to load your body with great nutrients including beta carotene, vitamin K, vitamin C, and calcium. Kale also contains a chemical called indole-3-carbinol (I3C) which may help prevent some forms of cancer.
We usually make this kale chip recipe as a snack food, but recently used it as a side dish along mashed potatoes and grilled halibut (another recipe that we will be posting soon).
- 1 Kale Bunch
- Olive Oil
- 1 Lemon (cut in wedges)
Preheat you oven to 350°. Strip the outer kale leaves from their stems then tear them into bite sized pieces. Spread the kale out in a large roasting pan so that it makes an even layer. Next sprinkle the olive oil over the top of the kale. Finish your prep by squeezing the lemon wedges over the kale and seasoning with salt.
Put the roasting pan in the oven and cook for 10 mins. Stir the kale in the roasting dish, then let it cook for another 5-10 mins. Remove the roasting pan from the oven and let them cool. Then enjoy your kale chips!
