Kale Chips

I can say no to sweets but I'm incapable of saying no to chips. There's something about their crispy crunch that I find irresistible. Once I get going I can't stop and I feel rather pathetic as I find myself elbow deep in a bag of Salt and Vinegar -trying to fish out crumbs.

In efforts to find a healthier snacking alternative I make Kale chips! You won't bother with store bought after you make these! They are quick, effortless AND incredibly delicious.

1 bunch kale (I like Tuscan Kale)
1/2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 425 and line two baking trays with tinfoil. 
Remove the kale leaves from its stalk and wash. Pat dry- you don't want them to be wet as they won't crisp in the oven. Toss the leaves in oil, salt and pepper. You want the leaves lightly coated but not drenched! Lay flat on a baking tray (you'll need two or you can do them in batches) and bake for 10 minutes or until you taste one and the leaves are crispy and chip-like!
