Baked Kale Chips

Long before we started this blog, several of the food blogs I read posted recipes for baked kale chips. Initially these recipes didn't interest me much, that is until I joined the Urban Acres produce co-op and received a bunch of kale every two weeks in my produce share. For the past two months, I have received kale in my share and, unfortunately, let it spoil before I was able to use it in a meal.

This time I decided to employ the kale chips recipe early so as to not loose the freshness of the vegetable. I actually tend to love my leafy greens, but even I can get tired of the usual preparations. So I decided to give the baked kale chips a try. The result was a light, slightly spicy, and crispy snack that I think would easily curb a craving for salty chips. If you have kids that are reluctant to eat their green vegetables, I think this would be a great recipe to try.
