Zesty Baked Kale Chips
Kale chips are nothing new, but they are sort of new to me! I started making kale chips about 6 months ago. It took me a while to get on the kale train, but I am all aboard now!
I’m definitely a snacker. I prefer to eat more, but smaller meals throughout the day. Snacks can be tricky though. While I would love to grab a bag of chips, they are not a good choice and I can only eat so many baby carrots with hummus before I get really bored. Enter kale chips.
I had a lot of doubts when I was making them for the first time. I figured there was no way kale chips would be a good substitute for a potato chip, but I was wrong! They were actually nice and crispy and had more flavor than a potato chip and before I knew it, I ate the whole pan that I made! I felt guilty for a quick second, but then realized it was kale and that makes it totally acceptable to eat the whole pan.
Just like a potato chip, you can do so many different flavors for kale chips. Big surprise, I went the zesty route by adding cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, and a pinch of cayenne. There is really no right or wrong though. Just bust out those spices and experiment!
