Kale Chips!

Most people I've talked to have maybe heard of kale but have definitely never tried eating it. Kale is one of my favorite greens-I use it in soups, sauteed, and baked. Kale, like broccoli, contains anti-cancer properties. Its also high in calcium {for those non dairy folk}, vitamins C & K and beta carotene.

Today I made kale version of a potato chip. Most of the time I make them as a side but end up finishing them off before I'm even done cooking. One plus is my son LOVES them!
Here ya go!

Kale chips
  • 1/2 c. Apple cider vinegar
  • 1 bunch kale
  • Kosher salt
Preheat oven to 350°.  Spray pan with Pam
Roughly wash and chop kale {it tends to be quite dirty}.
Place vinegar in a bowl. Take a handful of the kale and mix it in the bowl till coated.
Squeeze excess vinegar back into bowl. {If you don't it may be soggy}.
Lay out kale on pan and sprinkle with kosher salt. 
Bake for 12-15 min. The edges should be browned and crispy.
