Snack Attack: 15 minutes kale chips recipe!

One of my new year resolutions is to learn how to cook – yes, it’s sad to admit that I’m a 20 years old “adult” that doesn’t know how to cook much.

But, better late than never! And what’s a perfect way to learn how to cook by starting off with simple dishes?

For all those looking for a healthy snack, I recommend kale chips. They take about 15 minutes (or less!) to make, super affordable and simple! For all those who don’t like kale or haven’t tried kale, I still recommend kale chips because they’re based on you season them! I never had kale before but the chips were amazing. People that said they don’t like kale usually enjoys kale chips too!

To start off, you’ll need:
– a bunch of kale
– olive oil
– salt
– optional: seasoning of your choice

Step 1:
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Wash the kale and then rip them into bite-sized pieces; then lay them out to dry.

It’s best to make sure the veggies are completely dry. Seasoning may have a hard time sticking to the greens if there’s still moisture.

Step 2:
Once your kale is dry (I ended up patting out the left over water with a paper towel), throw them into a bowl and mix with olive oil, salt and your choice of seasoning. Adjust amount according to how much kale you have and your taste in seasoning.

Seasoned and everything! I don’t have a baking sheet (well… my parents lost it) so I’m using an oven-safe plate!

Step 3:
Put into your oven and let it bake for about 15 minutes or until they’re crispy!
*Time depends on the amount of kale on your plate/baking sheet.

I put mines in for 20 minutes so a majority of them were burnt 😦 I didn’t use much kale so I should have decreased the time but nonetheless, the ones that weren’t burnt were super delicious and crispy! When I finished the plate, I just wanted to make more!

Derpina loves it when I’m making kale chips because that means she gets to eat the left over kale stems.

  2. Buuuuuunnies! I swear I squeal that every damn time I see a bunny outside.. I love them. I wouldn't own one because I'm ridiculously allergic but I was excited when I saw your bunny on the screen too! Kale chips! I was just making kale with dinner the other night and I over salted it .. blech, but I was thinking how much I like crispy kale. (My husband was steaming it and ran out of water once and burnt the bottom layer and I loved it.) Sooo I am totally going to make Kale chips.. Thanks for the recipe!
