Need a Healthy Snack?

Try these roasted kale chips in place of potato chips!
Delicate yet crispy with lots of salty goodness.

Dinner was at Mom & Dad's yesterday and when I walked into their kitchen I saw this crispy and slightly browned bowl of "weeds" sitting on the counter.
"What in the world is that?", I asked.

Mom informed me that it was roasted kale.
Well, I'm not a big fan of kale but I had to try this.
CRUNCH...CRUNCH was actually good!
Good enough that my husband even liked them and trust me that's saying something. He's a man who calls vegetables "rabbit food" and eats very little of them. Actually, now that I think of it he probably never even knew what kale was let alone what it tasted like before yesterday.

Roasted Kale Chips

Wash and dry kale.
Place on a greased baking sheet in a single layer.
Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle generously with sea salt.
Roast in a 275 degree oven for 20 minutes.
Carefully turn kale over and bake another 20 minutes or until crisp.
Cool and enjoy!

My husband probably would love this, he likes rabbit food!!!
Thanks for sharing.

Now that sounds really good to me. A substitute for chips--who ever thought of using kale like that?

LOL, can imagine the look on your face when you spotted the crispy *weeds*! I don't think I've ever tasted Kale although I have given to the bunnies before and they liked it, may have to try this sometime!

How interesting! I have never heard of roasted Kale. I am not sure I could convince my hubby to try this one. Blessings!

I have heard how good kale is for you, but the only way I like to eat it, is my store bought ice-cream! I don't even taste it in there! But now you've got me wanting to try it. If your husband liked it, then it must be doable.
