Kale Chips

Raise your hand if you binged on Thanksgiving?  Raise your hand if you binged on Thanksgiving leftovers?  It’s okay guys.  Ain’t no shame!  It’s so hard to eat healthy during the holidays.  Everywhere you turn there is a holiday party, appetizers, drinks, candy cane Oreos/chocolate/mochas….you get the picture.  You know what?  It’s okay to enjoy food, but make sure to balance it out.  That’s where my kale chips come into play.

I have tried a handful of kale chip recipes only to end up with burnt or bitter greens.  I decided to play with the temperature until I found the result I liked.  The end result is flavorful and crunchy.  Perfect to satisfy my chip cravings!

Ingredients:

  • 1 bunch Kale, ribs removed and broken into pieces
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste 
  • parmesan cheese, grated (optional)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 280 degrees
  2. Throughly wash and dry your kale
  3. Lay kale on baking sheet in a single layer
  4. Evenly drizzle olive oil over kale
  5. Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste
  6. Bake for 20 minutes (turn leaves half way through)
  7. Let cool for at least 5 minutes
  8. Optional: add freshly grated parm on top of kale chips
I hope you guys enjoy this healthy snack!

    You’re going to think that this is ridiculous, but I’m a HUGE Bobbi Brown fan, and she is always talking about how much she loves kale…kale this, kale that, kale chips. So when I saw “Kale chips recipe” I knew that Jessica Who? had sent me to the right place!!!
