It's hard to keep it fresh though. I get bored of fruits and nuts all the time; I want something new and exciting. While my brother and I were growing up, we would always say we wanted something "new and exciting" when my mom asked us what we wanted to eat. Now that I have to feed myself, I am just like fuck "new and exciting." Some days I consider myself lucky if I manage to get scrambled eggs on the table.
Kale chips aren't exactly new to the scene, but they are most definitely exciting. The crispiness slash slightly bitter taste to them is what creates the excitement. Don't you think? And another plus is that they are super easy to make.
1 bunch kale
Spices of your choice (I used Chili Powder and Salt)
1) Heat oven to 250.
2) De-rib and cut kale into "chip-sized" pieces. The easiest way to de-rib kale is to hold the stem on one end and then pull the leaf off of it from the middle to the other end.
3) Make sure the kale is completely dry before this step. Coat kale with thin layer of olive oil and toss with spices to taste.
4) Place evenly in aluminum foiled baking dish.
5) Bake for 20 minutes, turning the chips at 10 minutes to cook both sides.
