The second nosh for our Super Bowl Healthy Eats Series are these delicious baked kale chips.  I have written about kale being a superfood as well as the health benefits of kale many times.  Have I told you that they make a great snack?  This is an easy recipe that is really good.  Besides the benefits of your daily dose of kale, these chips are seasoned and them baked until crunchy – see I told you it was easy!  Feel free to use any  kind of kale.  I picked up two different types from the Happy Boy farm last weekend and what I like about their kale besides being organic is that the leaves are relatively small.  After I wash the kale I pat the leaves dry and then snip off the ends, I do not tear them into pieces as it is more fun to munch on a leave.  I usually season them with a brush of olive oil and a sprinkle of salt, this time I seasoned the leaves with a soy sauce mixture … yum!

Now you may think these are odd for Super Bowl, but trust me, they will be gone in no time, even the manliest man will love them!

 

Baked Kale Chips

1 lb of kale, washed, patted dry, ends snipped off

3 tablespoons vegetable oil

3 tablespoons soy sauce

Heat oven to 350.  Mix oil and soy together in a small bowl.  Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.  Lay the leaves on the sheet, do not let them touch, you will be making batches of these.  Using a pastry brush, lightly brush each leave, tops only.  Bake for 5 minutes and then flip the leaves, bake for another 3 – 5 minutes until crunchy.  Let cool.  Do not put into a storage container until they are completely cool or you will have soggy chips. Serve.  Eat.
