Baked Kale Chips

I looooove homemade kale chips. They're crispy, salty, light and delicious. It's so simple to make- you only need 4 ingredients:
  • kale
  • olive oil
  • lemon
  • sea salt

I used to buy a kale bunch then tear it into bite size pieces until I found bagged kale at Trader Joe's. This made the whole process A LOT faster. Aside from saving yourself the washing, drying and cutting, it takes half the time to crisp up in the oven since they're pre washed and dried.

Here's how I prepare them. First, empty about 1/4-1/3 of a bag of kale onto a baking sheet. It may look like a lot but they reduce in size once they're baked. Make sure not to crowd the sheet.

Lightly drizzle it with olive oil and the juice of half a lemon.  Salt to taste, toss, then add a few extra touches of salt. Little secret- try using Himalayan pink crystal salt. It adds an extra kick and can also found at Trader Joe's.

Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until crisp.

Eat them quickly while they're nice and crisp or allow them to cool before plating.
