This afternoon we decided to try our hand at making kale chips. They are such a healthy alternative to traditional snack food and something we hadn’t tried before!
We started off by preheating the oven to 350 degrees F. Then we cut the kale into large pieces.
After they were cut, we made sure to wash them really well. Once washed, we put them in a salad spinner to remove all the excess moisture. When making kale chips it is very important to remove all the water otherwise they will not crisp well.
Once the kale is dry, we put it in a large mixing bowl. We tossed it with olive oil, and sea salt. Make sure the kale is coated evenly with the olive oil.
Next, we laid the kale out flat on the baking sheet. We made sure none of the kale pieces were overlapping. Then we placed the baking sheet in the oven. Cook the chips for 8 – 9 minutes. When the kale chips are ready they will be crispy and still have a vibrant green color. If they start to brown in color, they are overcooked.
The kale chips were delicious….even the 4 year-old approved!
