I’ve been eyeing kale chips for the last two years and yesterday I finally decided to make my own. The first time I tried a kale chip was at Whole Foods.
On the weekends they have food stations placed throughout the store and on one occasion they were touting baked kale chips. Being the inquisitive type, I had to try one and to my surprise, I liked it. I had heard they were the new health food craze. Not only is this super food affordable and tasty, it’s downright nutritional! Click here to view 8 health benefits of kale. It takes little effort to make and dressed with olive oil, sea salt and lime they won’t last long.

1. Preheat oven to 350f (180f).
2. Wash kales leaves and dry with paper towel. Cut thick stem away from kale (this is nasty to bite into).
3. Cut leaves according to your liking. In a bowl toss kale with a splash of olive oil and a sprinkling of salt.
4. Arrange on a lined baking sheet in one layer. Squeeze lime juice over kale and bake 15 minutes.
The Culinary Chase’s Note: Keep an eye on the kale once 10 minutes has passed as it can quickly turn from a bright green to brown. Try other seasonings such as curry powder, cayenne pepper, lemon or lime zest, smoked paprika, garlic powder, cumin, grated Parmesan just to name a few. Enjoy!
