Have you tried kale chips yet?  You probably have, as they have been quite popular for a while now.  But here's the recipe in case you haven't.  You can find recipes for kale chips on pretty much any blog and food website out there; here's how I make mine.

Kale Chips

1 large bunch kale
1 tbsp olive oil, divided
1 tsp kosher salt, divided

Preheat oven to 400°.

Wash and dry kale thoroughly.  Cut stems off kale and chop into large pieces.  You should end up with about 7 cups or 5.5 oz.

Divide kale in half and spread it out on two large baking sheets.  Drizzle each half with half of the olive oil.  Rub the oil into the kale with your fingers to ensure even distribution.  Sprinkle with the salt.  

Bake for 10 minutes, or until kale is crispy.  

Makes 6 servings, about 1 cup each.

Kale is so super healthy and this is a great way to eat it.  When you rub the olive oil into the leaves, they get wonderfully crispy and delicious.  It's amazing how crispy and crunchy they get.  And check out those nutrition facts!  That's a lot of nutritional bang for the calorie/fat buck.

My family loves these.  My girls can't get enough.  They work well as a snack or as a side dish with dinner.

These are Tuna Stuffins.  I'll share that recipe soon.
