Well, I’ve got one for you and it’s so simple and so easy it will satisfy your munchies in a snap and will help you get that dose of cruciferous veggies in a very satisfying way – no problem.

Kale is chock full of vitamins and minerals. has this to say about kale:

One cup of chopped kale contains 33 calories and 9% of the daily value of calcium, 206% of vitamin A, 134% of vitamin C, and a whopping 684% of vitamin K. It is also a good source of minerals copper, potassium, iron, manganese, and phosphorus.

Pretty good for a cup of kale if you ask me. I’ve prepared kale all sorts of ways – raw, sautéed with bacon, steamed, in salads; but this recipe is by far the easiest and tastiest way to serve it. My kids even love it and that’s saying a lot!

So how do you make them? Simple. . .

Grab your olive oil, garlic salt, parmesan and of course a big bunch of kale.

Preheat your oven to 350° F.

Cut your kale into bite sized pieces, removing the stem.

Raw Kale

Toss it in a bowl with about 1 Tablespoon of olive oil, a sprinkle of garlic salt and a handful of parmesan.


Olive OilGarlic Salt

Dump all of it onto a baking tray.

Bake for about 10 to 15 minutes, turning once during cooking time, until crisp.

Voilà!  You’ve got Parmesan Kale Chips to enjoy in about 15 minutes.

A bit of advice: Buy two bunches of kale. The likelihood that you will be making another batch of these in a few minutes is HUGE. Just trying to save you another trip to the grocery store!

Enjoy. . .
