I really try to be open-minded about new cuisine but when I heard someone recently claim that kale chips were "super tasty," I admit feeling skeptical. How can lawn clippings, even in chip form, be tasty? Do recall that I'm fairly new to leafy greens.
Well, I rescind my incredulity. Kale chips are damn good, so long as you aren't trying to magic them into potato chips. They are light and savory with a satisfying, albeit papery-thin crunch. Oh and did I mention highly nutritious and easy to make? (Surely my eating kale chips this evening makes up for the two cinnamon rolls this morning...)

|To prepare kale chips, preheat the oven to 350. On a parchment lined cookie sheet, place well-dried kale torn into bite-sized chunks with thick stems removed. Drizzle with olive oil or spritz with cooking spray (you can also shake the kale/oil in a plastic bag first). Season with your favorite spices. I used a bit of salt, and a healthy helping of cayenne and garlic powder. Bake for 10-ish minutes until crispy but not burned. Enjoy!|
