Kale Chips

I wish I had known about Kale Chips before.
It is easy to make and has the crunch I missed all my life...

You will need:

1 bag of kale { I buy the already washed and cut ones}
1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
Salt to taste

Pre heat your oven to high {275 degrees} and line a baking tray with parchment paper or foil.

I was told by an angel called Shannon, who passed me the recipe, to sprinkle the leaves with the oil, but I discovered it also gets a good 'crunch' when  I dip my fingers in the oil and rub it on the palm of my hands and then massage the leaves with my not-too-oily palms. 

Lay them on a single layer and sprinkle some salt on them.

Some people use chilli powder too or freshly crushed black pepper and I have even heard of a girl who sprinkled the leaves with cocoa powder and brown sugar or drinking chocolate powder, but I never tasted that way..

Put them in the oven at the same temperature for 10/15 minutes and turn them over.
Keep an eye on the as each oven is very different and remove when they are crunchy.

After all, if the heat has not removed all the goodness from the dark green leaves, you may get quite a lot of calcium and fibre.

They keep crunchy for one day, I discovered,  as I left one leaf hidden from myself overnight to test the crunch factor...
It is almost impossible to stop eating them...
