Classic Kale Chips

Your healthcare provider may have recommended the DASH diet (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) to help you with your blood pressure, but you may be finding it hard to get in all that veg while cutting back on salty snacks. Try these delicious kale chips for a crunchy snack that’s rich in vitamins C, A, K and antioxidants.

1 bunch kale
1/8 – ¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
1 Tablespoon olive oil or other neutral oil 

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Remove the spine of the kale, tear the rest of the leaf into bite-sized pieces. Wash the kale and dry thoroughly.

In a large bowl, add the dry kale, salt and pepper. With clean hands, rub and massage the oil and seasoning into the kale until it is evenly coated. Arrange the kale in a single layer on a sheet tray. Areas where the kale overlaps are less likely to get crispy, so you may need to bake in batches. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until the edges start to brown. Once removed from the oven, allow to cool and crisp for 1 to 2 minutes. Makes 6 servings.
