Baked Kale Chips
So today, I’m making these Kale Chips via a simple recipe with olive oil and salt via SmittenKitchen.com.
Although, I am a much bigger fan of Swiss Chard, today I am making Kale Chips. My refrigerator is overflowing with this nutritious vegetable. And although a while ago I wrote about how I don’t really love Kale (I know, I know…I’m the Dietitian that doesn’t love this green veggie,) I am giving Kale another chance because Kale is loaded with Vitamins such as K, A, C, managese, fiber, iron, calcium and more!
Anyway, if these chips are not a hit, I will move on to adding some to soup. Or maybe I could eat these chips with some soup or some dip. I’ll keep you posted on my Kale adventures.
I also still have a little bit of Chard growing in my garden. It’s amazing! I cut it back and it keeps regrowing- love that hardy plant! I plan to try to make swiss Chard Chips as well- will let you know how that experiment goes. I would love to replace the recent “Kale trend” with Swiss Chard! It’s just such a beautiful leafy green with it’s red stems.
To make the Kale chips, I simply washed and dried this curly Kale and brushed olive oil and salt on the leaves- simple recipe. Then, just bake them in the oven for… 20-30 minutes until Crisp at 300 degrees.
That’s it! Now, to try them!
Ps. If you have any Kale Recipes- please leave a comment with a link. I’d love to try them!
