Salty? Crunchy? Healthy? Yes, Please!

Do you ever crave that salty, crunchiness of potato chips? Feel like you've been so good with your eating habits and don't want to ruin the track you've been on?  Well, Kale Chips are the answer to your life's burning questions.  They will satisfy that salty/crunchy need and are a great compliment to almost any dish. (Plus kale is LOADED with Vitamin A, C, and K)

Sidenote: Thanks "Sissy K" for the recipe... I chose to spice it up a bit with some garlic powder!

Olive Oil
Sea Salt
Garlic Powder

1)  Chop off the stems of the kale.

 2)  Cut the kale along each side of the spine.  Throw out the spine and chop the leaves into small pieces.

3)  Brush with olive oil.  Sprinkle with sea salt (generous amount) and garlic powder (a small touch).

It seems like a lot, but the kale really cooks down.

4)  Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until the kale is crunchy.  You will need to mix it a few times while cooking too.

Ever make Kale Chips before? Have a different variation of them?  I'd love to hear about it in the comments section below!
