This cruciferous vegetable is very high in Vitamin K which is known to help or act as an anti-inflammatory. It has numerous other health benefits and if you are looking at eating a bowl of potato chips you might want to try this alternative.

Kale might be a challenge to eat boiled or on its own but seasoned and crispy like a potato chip they disappear quickly and your family will be asking for more.

Ingredients

1 Head Kale
Sea Salt
Seasonings (Mrs. Dash)
Olive oil
Coarse Ground Malabar Black Pepper

Directions

Wash and thoroughly dry the kale. If you have a salad spinner this will help speed up the process. Remove stems (we slice down both sides of the stem) and cut the kale into 2 inch pieces. Toss them into a bowl and add a drizzle of olive oil…mix well ensuring all the kale have a nice thin coat of olive oil.  Add sea salt and seasonings (Mrs. Dash is what we use) while in bowl or after laying them out onto the baking pans.

Place them onto two cookie or baking sheets. Be sure to space them.

Preheat oven to 275 deg F and cook the chips for about 20 minutes. Keep an eye on them and remove the pieces which are dry and crispy.
