I Baked Kale-It is Suprisingly Good!

kaleI am always looking for ways to make your diet a little healthier. So while I was taking care of two sick kids yesterday I decided to try something new. I saw a recipe for Crispy Kale in a Woman’s Day magazine and considered it. When talking to my sister recently she mentioned it too so today I tried it.

Much to my surprise it was really good. Even my two kids ate it! I was shocked. They called them green chips and actually at some! Here is the recipe if you want to try:

  • Toss 4 cups torn kale leaves (stems removed) with 1 teaspoon olive oil and 1/4 kosher salt. (I used sea salt)
  • Spread in an even layer on a large wire rack on top of a baking pan.
  • Bake at 350 for 15 minutes or until just crispy.

In case you are interested here are the nutrition stats on this recipe:

309% of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin A, 201% vitamin C, 14% calcium, 10% iron, 3 grams of protein, 2 grams of fiber, and it only has 112 calories and 1 gram of saturated fat per serving!

Have you ever tried this? Feeling inspired? If you do try let me know how it goes.

  1. I think I saw that same recipe and was intrigued. Kale is SUPER good for you, way to go!

  2. I love kale in our soup. I make a Portuguese soup with potatoes, Italian sausage, kidney beans…It is very similar to the Toscana soup at Olive Garden. I think I posted recipe on Easy Meals for Moms on blogger: http://www.easymealsformoms.com/2009/09/portugu
    Its one of our favorites. And I agree with Julie-kale is good for you!
