Why This Recipe?

I have never made anything like kale chips before, but I still thought this recipe was super easy and worthwhile.

Did You Have the Ingredients on Hand:

I had everything I needed, so it only took me 30 minutes start-to-finish!

How Would You Modify It:

The recipe allows you to season your chips to taste, but I would warn against using too much olive oil. A sparing amount of oil makes the kale crunchier, but too much increases the baking time and makes the chips messier.

Would You Make it Again?

 Verdict: kale chips should be your new go-to snack food!
