Tasty Tuesday - Kale Chips

I've seen similar recipes online, but I never made these until I saw them in Tosca Reno's new Eat Clean Cookbook. This recipe is adapted from the one in her book. You will NOT believe how great these taste. I almost think that I could blindfold my husband and he would believe that he was eating potato chips. They're that good.

Kale Chips

Per serving, you will need:

1 cup (about 40g) of chopped kale, bigger stems removed
about 1/2 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
sprinkle each of sea salt and garlic powder

1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees.

2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

3. Toss all ingredients in a bowl until kale is evenly coated. Place on baking sheet.

4. Bake for about 25 minutes, until crisp. Watch carefully so that it doesn't burn.

Eat and be amazed! Each serving has approximately:

80 calories
1.5g protein
7g fat
4g carbs
1g fiber

These are one of my favorite snacks! I use sea salt and cayenne pepper. Delicious!

I always thought kale was bitter in taste. I may have to try this!

Try them! Try them!
And you may.
Try them and you may, I say.

(One of my kids' favorite books is Green Eggs and Ham!) :)
