Another simple, healthy snack that you’re guaranteed to love – a great alternative to potato chips (although they’re really good, too!)
Tear the kale leaves into approx. 2″ bite size pieces (discard any thick stems)
Wash and dry the pieces thoroughly (a salad spinner is best for this)
Toss the dried leaves with the ¼ cup olive oil and ¾ tsp of kosher salt, coating all pieces well
Place them on a baking sheet and bake in a 350˚ oven for about 10-13 minutes ’til crumbly and crisp
Let cool and serve…
If you like, when you remove them from the oven, you can also sprinkle the crispy kale chips with some lime zest, cayenne, lemon pepper, Parmesan, chile powder, garlic powder or just about any other flavor or mix of spices, to add a personal touch.
You know when you look in your freezer and see a UFO (Unidentified Frozen Object), and you have no idea what it is or how long it’s been in there? Here is a simple little tip to remedy that situation. When you freeze something (and if it’s pork or chicken, you should definitelybrine it first) just cut the label from the package it came in and stick it in the freezer bag…now you can see what it is, when you bought it and even what you paid for it (check it out…$1.99/lb for center cut pork chops…what a deal!).
