Lemon & Sea Salt Kale Chips
January 23, 2017    POSTED IN  RecipesSide

If you’ve never had kale chips then you are missing out.  These crispy, delicious, easy to make chips are one of my favorite snacks and an all time perfect travel food.  They fill you up but not out as they are low in calories, high in protein, and contain a good source of fiber.  Plus, kale chips are a great replacement for highly processed, nutrient-void potato chips.  The nutrient density of kale makes it one of the healthiest foods you can add to your diet.


Lemon & Sea Salt Kale Chips
PREP TIME: 5 minutes
COOK TIME: 12-15 minutes
1 lemon, juiced and zested
1 tablespoon olive oil
Dash of Cayenne pepper (optional)
1/4 teaspoon each: sea salt and black pepper
6 cups torn 3 to 4 inch pieces of kale, stem removed

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.


In a large bowl, use hands to lightly message lemon juice, olive oil, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper into kale pieces.  Lay flat on a baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes, until crisp and slightly browned around edges.  Sprinkle baked kale chips with lemon zest.
