my daughter said these were yummy::



kale chips????
really?
i had never heard of kale chips
sheesh...
i don't think i had heard of kale at all until i had zuppa toscana soup at olive garden
which i loved and googled & found the recipe
gotta love google
the recipe calls for 1 cup of cream
i believe my heart would stop if i consumed that much cream
so i just use a few tablespoons


anyhoo....kale chips

this is a pile of kale
i washed it in cold water with a drop of dish soap
i wash just about all my fruits & veggies in a drop of dawn
because well, you know.....60 minutes had a show about the ports
where ALL your veggies in come in that make it to the grocery and how the men that worked there pee'd
on the produce because they don't have time to go to the bathroom
said bathrooms also didn't provide a place to wash your hands
...ewwwwwwwww

i thought you should know this....

then give it a good chop and a ride in the salad spinner
toss it with some olive oil & sprinkle with
whatever seasoning you like
i used season salt
garlic salt would be good too!
toss it about and put it on a baking sheet with some parchment
&
bake @ 350 for about 7-10 minutes
watch it closely as it can turn to burnt kale chips pretty quick

throw in a bowl & much away!

i thought it was better as soon as it came out of the oven
the girls in my knitting group loved it several hours later

enjoy!

Eeeeeekkkk, that's horrid about the workers! - I have seen the chips done on shows but it's good to see a real person do it and see that it really turns out..thanks for taking the time to share it with us. xo
