Vegetables as Snacks: Kale Chips

kc1.jpgI am trying to incorporate more vegetables into my food, and one extremely easy (and yet totally sleazy) way to accomplish this is through kale chips. Get a bunch of kale, separate the leaf from the stem, tear leaves into bite-sized pieces, clean and dry, toss with a tablespoon or so of olive oil, a teaspoon of salt, spread on a sheet and bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees Farenheit. If you're feeling sinister, cumin and coriander make a great mix-in as well. What comes out is a crispy, healthy snack that you will eat in record time.

These are so awesome - I like to use a little parmesan if I am feeling cheesy or curry powder for a kick.
