I first heard about Kale chips from reading KathEats. It took me several months to work up the courage to try out these faux “potato chips.” The first time I tried them I HATED them! However, I tried them again and the second time was the charm! I have been addicted to Kale chips for the past four months. They are my favorite lunch addition.
Kale Chips could not be easier (or cheaper) to make! You need three ingredients:
Cooking Spray or Olive Oil
Seasoning of Choice
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a baking sheet
2) Wash kale and make sure to DRY COMPLETELY! Tear kale into pieces (be aware that they shrink a LOT during baking, so do not make the pieces too small), spray or douse with oil and sprinkle with seasoning
3) Bake for 12-15 minutes
4) If you are like me, proceed to squirt a good deal of ketchup and DEVOUR!
Lately, I have been loving “Cavender’s” Greek seasoning. You can find it in the spice aisle of the grocery store.
However, when I feel like having “cheese” Kale chips, I use nutritional yeast. It is very nutty/cheesy and a wonderful non-dairy seasoning that is full of amazing B vitamins.
While, I know ketchup is not “paleo,” I just cannot give it up. I have tried and it just is not possible! I do, however, make sure not to use the HFCS ketchup.
Do these taste like potato chips—no. I am not going to lie to you. But there are incredibly yummy and I feel like they have that wonderful “snacky” quality! Also, I love that you can get SEVERAL servings of vegetables at one time, not to mention a hearty dose of fiber.
