I had some leftover kale from a recipe and I didn't want it to go to waste so I decided to bake some kale chips.

There are tons of recipes online, but I just washed and cut the leaves, tossed them with some olive oil, spread them out onto a greased cookie sheet, and sprinkled them with some coarse sea salt.

Then I put them into the oven at about 350 degrees until the edges were brown but not burnt. About 10-15 minutes but I'd closely watch them to make sure they don't burn.

Also, as you'd expect, the kale gets way smaller once it's been baked so if you're wanting a lot of chips, you'll need a lot of kale. I filled up one large cookie sheet with the kale and ended up with about 2-3 servings of chips.

I probably wouldn't make this again; kale is fine, I just don't love it.

What's a healthy snack you'd recommend?
