Veggies that taste like a snack...........a snack you cannot put down

Like Potato chips but better tasting and a SUPER food, who knew? Who even thinks of Kale?

Who guessed Kale chips? Wait, stay with me! 

Not the ornamental kind but the variety found in the produce section or farmers markets

Ok, let's go, this is easy............Wash thoroughly. Cut off the tops, discard the lower stems. For a full baking sheet plan on approximately 3 heads

Separate the leaves from the stems, tear into bite size pieces.

Rinse well. Dry well.

Thoroughly coat with Olive Oil............... but lightly,  place on baking sheet and put in the oven at a preheated 450 degrees. Notice the leaves are mounded, no need for single layering.

Bake for 5 minutes, remove and stir to thoroughly mix. Return to oven for another 5-8 minutes until crispy but not browned. Sprinkle the kale with 2 tablespoons of brown sugar and liberally with Kosher salt to taste. Stir well.

That is it...........I know it still does not look like a temptress. However the earthy flavor of the greens, crisped with a salty/sweet crunch is irrestible.

Better than popcorn, better than kettle corn and the best part, healthy........shhhhh don't tell them that part!

Ralph says it best!
