When I started to research healthy foods,over and over I read about the benefits of kale. Kale packs more iron than beef, it’s loaded with antioxidants and vitamins K, C and A. Kale is available most of the year, although, it’s most in season during the fall months. I had never tried it so I bought some on day. I first tried it raw and I admit I was not a fan. That is, until I discovered kale chips! They are so addicting. This recipe is so versatile too. You can just add any flavors you like. I try to keep mine simple with just some olive oil, white balsamic and sea salt. They come out mildly sweet and crunchy.
Kale rinsed and dried (I buy organic because kale tends to hold a lot of pesticide residue.)
1 T olive oil
2 T white balsamic vinegar
1/4 tsp sea salt
Preheat oven to 350. Remove kale from the stems and tear into bite size pieces. Save the stems for juicing. Lay them on a lined or greased baking sheet. In a small bowl, mix oil, vinegar and salt. With a silicone brush, gently brush mixture onto the kale pieces. Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes or until pieces become crispy. They are so good, I eat the whole tray as soon as they come out! Enjoy!
