Kale Chips?

It seems like every food or health blog I read these days is talking about kale chips. I eat kale. I’ve posted about kale. I usually saute it with some onions and garlic. The taste took some getting used to, but after a few tries I can honestly say I like it. After reading yet another blog post about kale chips I decided to see for myself what all the fuss was about. I tore up some leaves and spread them out on a baking sheet then drizzled olive oil over them and sprinkled on a little sea salt. As directed, I baked them at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. In a three roommate/judge taste test, kale chips got only one vote. Here’s Ashley about go in for her first taste…

Mix your veggies in with your mac and cheese. Fashion your broccoli into a landscape. Put ketchup on your green beans (whatever floats your boat). Have some fun. We did making these. So give it a try! And who knows, you just might like it…
