Kale Chips (yum!)

YUMMMMmmm… one of my favorite aspects of gardening with children is their excitement at tasting the vegetables.  Since they have had a part in growing and harvesting the vegetables, kids are much more excited to taste the fruits (or vegetables) of their labor.  This recipe is a great way to introduce kids to kale, a somewhat bitter vegetable on its own.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Have kids tear up kale into smaller pieces.  The thick stem of the leaf should be removed, as it will only become chewy.  Wash and thoroughly dry kale in a salad spinner.  Next, toss lightly with olive oil and plenty of salt, and then spread it out on a baking sheet.  Bake on bottom rack of oven at 350 for 10-20 min until leaves crackle when touched and don’t bend.  Serve immediately.  Salty and crunchy like chips!
