Kale Chips

Author Notes

I have been obsessing over Kale. If you haven’t seen it already, watch the video of my Kale and Quinoa salad (on the messimake.com). I’ve had Kale in many forms…salads, sautéed with a poached egg over it, kale and lentil soup, Indian entrees, smoothies and many more. Kale is considered one of the best super foods. It is loaded with anti-oxidants (prevents cancer), iron, Vitamin A (good for eyes and skin), Vitamin C (boosts our immune system) and Vitamin K (for healthy bones and protects against certain cancers). It is low in calories, has no fat and it is high in fiber.

I tried Kale chips at a Farmer’s market and had to make it at home. It is so easy to make and you can season it with whatever you want…sea salt & black pepper, curry powder, paprika and so on. —themessimake.com

In This Recipe
Directions
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200º F.
  2. Drizzle EVOO and mix well using your hands or put it all in a plastic ziplock bag and shake well.
  3. Spread over a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until they’re crispy. Toss/turn the kale every 10 minutes. (Yes, it does feel like it takes forever to make these chips, but hey, I was able to paint my nails while baking these :) After each coat of nail polish, I tossed the kale and finally, both the kale chips and my nails were done at the same time!)
  5. Season with sea salt and black pepper immediately.
