Happy Saint Patrick’s day everybody!

Since a lot of you probably have other activities planned for today, we’ll try to keep this post short and sweet- just like this recipe!

Ok, so this recipe’s not sweet, per say, but it sure is delicious! And it honestly couldn’t be any easier.  And it’s green, so it fits in with the day’s festivities. 🙂

Today’s super-easy recipe is for one of our favourite snacks- kale chips!

Kale is also extremely healthy for you, by the way! Full of fibre and antioxidants, plus it’s fat free and low cal, of course!

And there’s so many different flavours you can make!  Add a sprinkle of parmesan cheese (or nutritional yeast!) and bam! You’ve got cheesy kale chips!  Or add some chili powder and paprika for a spicier version, or onion and garlic powder and make a sue do-all dressed flavour- the choice is up to you!  Just think of your favourite chip flavour and you can probably adapt it to kale chips 🙂

So here is the super-extremely easy recipe for a tasty and very healthy snack!

Kale Chips

DSCN5168

Prep: 10 min
Bake time: 10 min
Serves: 4-6 people

Ingredients:

1 head of kale
2 tbsp olive oil
1/4 tsp salt
pepper, to taste

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400F.

Wash the kale under cold water and pat dry on a paper towel to remove as much excess water as possible.

Remove the thick stem from each leaf, and tear the leaves into large pieces.  In a large bowl, toss the kale in olive oil, salt and pepper.  Spread evenly on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil (you will probably need more than one sheet) and place in the oven for 10 minutes, or until the leaves are slightly browned and crispy.  Eat right away (they will wilt and become soft if you try to store them)
