Baked Kale Chips
Looking for a healthy, crunchy, satisfying snack for you and/or your kids? Look no further! Kale chips are a fantastic way to help your kids to discover the joys of eating greens because they are so fun and satisfying to eat. (Plus they're a great option for cooking with your kids, which research shows makes them more likely to try the food.)
- 1 bunch kale
- 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
- 1/4 tsp. kosher salt, sea salt, or other coarse salt
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Wash and THOROUGHLY dry the kale.
- Remove the widest part of the stems by grabbing hold of the bottom of the stem with one hand and sliding the thumb and forefinger of your other hand up the stem. Discard the stems.
- Coarsely chop the kale (or have your kids rip it into bite-sized pieces by hand).
- Spread it on a baking sheet, making sure they are in a single layer (use two baking sheets if necessary), drizzle it with the oil, toss thoroughly (hands work best for this), then sprinkle the salt over the kale.
- Bake for about 20 minutes (check it after 10 minutes if you have a smaller bunch of kale), tossing once, until the leaves are crispy, but make sure they don't turn brown and get overly crispy or they will taste burnt.
