Sometimes its hard to eat things that are good for you,  so today I decided to try and make some crispy kale chips so I could have them to munch on during RuPaul’s Drag Race tonight (#TeamPearl)

What you’ll need:

– large bunch of kale (any kind, I used black kale)

– 2(ish) tablespoons of Olive Oil

– 1 1/2 tsp kosher salt

– 1/2 tsp paprika

– 1/4 cup finely grated cheese (I used an Irish cheddar)

The trick to these chips is low and slow.  Preheat the oven to 300 degrees and make sure your rack is placed in the middle.

Remove stems/ribs from kale and tear into pieces. Rinse and pat completely dry.

Take kale and place in large bowl.  Toss with olive oil and rub to ensure each chip is fully coated.  Next, toss with kosher salt and paprika

Place chips on parchment lined baking sheet and sprinkle with cheddar

On a side note, the inspiration for the kale chips came from my delivery that came today from Mama Earth Organics
In this week’s order I received kale, asparagus, snap peas, apples, oranges, rhubarb and fiddleheads.
