Kale Chips: A Guest Post

I am Paisley's daughter, Sarah. I am super smart. I am going to be a med tech and cure you of your ailments from behind the scenes. You will never see me but you will know I'm there. Like Batman.

Let's make some kale chips.

Make sure your kale is really leafy and green. Inspect your leaves for debris such as bugs and bird droppings. Wash it thoroughly and use a salad spinner to spin them dry. Remove the stems. Like, all of them. Not just the part below the leaves but the part between the leaves as well. Cut or tear the leaves into bite sized pieces. I usually use about 5-6 large leaves. Throw them in a large mixing bowl and drizzle on about 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil. Olive oil is okay if you like the flavor. Mix thoroughly to coat the leaves. Season as you like. I use salt, pepper, garlic powder, and chili powder. I also like turmeric because it makes the kale chips taste like roasted pumpkin seeds. Mix again. Spread them onto a baking sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for about ten minutes. Keep an eye on them. They'll shrink a bunch and look crispy. That's how you'll know they're done. Remove from oven and serve in a bowl.


Make faces!

I eat these almost every day. Recently when I went to donate blood they told me my iron level was very good.

Eat kale chips. Donate blood. Save lives. Be like Batman.
