Kale has become so popular we might just see people giving bouquets of it soon!  It is a super food and full of good stuff, to say the least.

I love making kale chips because it’s so easy and palatable to those who otherwise don’t like kale.  I have to say, dipping these crispy green fluffs in my Ranch-O-Yum dressing make it especially addicting!

Tips
Tasting a leaf to make sure it has enough flavor is helpful before baking it.  I have dashed cayenne pepper over the kale on the cookie sheet {or just plain ol’ flavorful pepper}!  Make it your own and try dill, fennel, or garlic powder!  I have seen many recipes on how to cook kale chips, but I find slow cooking {15 min verses 7} at a lower temperature {300 rather than 350} is best in preserving the nutrients and still getting that crispy texture.

I hope you get a bouquet of purple and green kale!

With a bite full of crispy health,
