Inspired by babysugar's series Eat your Greens, I decided to try to make Kale chips for my little niece. She is only a year and half, but I definitely want to try to expose her to a lot of different types of food. The chips themselves are really easy to make and only require a bit of olive oil, kale and a touch of salt.
I used FitSugar's recipe but basically lightly tossed the kale in olive oil and baked. I happened to buy dinosaur kale and next time I will buy a kale with a slightly softer stalk or remove more of it before I bake them. But all in all the chips were tasty, crunchy, and definitely healthier than any chip out of the bag. My niece even enjoyed a few to my amazement.
Keep reading for the recipe.
