Versatile, portable, and easy, healthful kale chips might be a way for people who don’t normally like leafy greens to enjoy the healthful benefits of these nutritional treasures.
Just wash some fresh kale, or collard greens or other greens, cut them into chip-size pieces, give them a very light coating of oil either in a bowl or in a bag, then spread them on a sheet pan and bake them for about 20 minutes at 350 degrees, until they are crispy.
There are so many good things to say about kale chips, or collard green chips, it’s hard to know what’s most important. It’s easy to take them along on trips to the fair, where it might otherwise be awkward to take some cooked leafy greens. They make a snack like potato chips but they’re awfully good for you. And people who don’t really like leafy greens taste them and say “Wow, these don’t even taste like kale! I like these! I could eat these!” Maybe that’s the most important thing of all, then. If they are a way to enjoy leafy greens and you wouldn’t otherwise eat kale, then this could be a great new way to get healthy.
Of course, I love kale anyway, and for me this is just one more way to enjoy them!
The part about how easy it is to take them along for lunch when I go out and about, though…. I think that’s pretty darn cool, as well.
Kale Chips — pretty awesome, huh?
