Not Quite Potato Chips

... but Kale chips are pretty tasty.

Previously I heard about the deliciousness that was Kale chips.  I didn't really pay too much attention since I'm not a huge chip person.  But since starting the Ideal Protein diet, I am looking for any and all recipes that are on plan.  And thankfully Kale chips are!  Woohoo!

I followed this tutorial, which was quite completely.  Although I did change a few things up.  Here's my version.

Kale Chips
Olive Oil

Preheat oven to 350.

Wash kale.  Completely dry kale.  Dry again to be sure.  Rip kale from stalk.  Rip kale into bite size pieces. Place on cookie sheet that has been sprayed/lightly greased with olive oil.  Spray kale with olive oil.  Sprinkle with seasonings of your choice (garlic powder, garlic salt, onion powder, salt, etc.).

Cook until they are the consistency of paper.  Mine took around 8 min.  But smaller pieces will take longer.  Wait until they are cool to package up.  We learned that hard way that you will otherwise you end up with soggy kale and that's just no fun.

Feed leftover kale stalks to your dog.
