Kale Chips

Kale chips are easy to make and take only 10 minutes to bake in the oven.

To make the chips, place some aluminum foil on a cookie sheet and spray the foil with cooking spray.

Wash the kale and strip it from the stems -- do not use the stems for making chips as they are tough and need a longer cooking time, such as in a homemade soup.

Tear the kale into pieces and place on the sprayed aluminum foil. Bake at 350 F for 10 minutes, but watch the kale as just a few minutes longer and the kale will turn brown and be crumbly not crispy!

Enjoy a healthy snack alternative!
