Baked Kale Fries

Probably the healthiest, lightest fries I can think of
From a vegetarian potluck

Taste 3 (out of 5)

Difficulty 1 (out of 5)

- 1 bunch / 7-8 oz / 200 g kale (100 cal)
- 1 tbsp olive oil (120 cal)
- sea salt to taste
Total: 220 cal, 4 servings, 55 cal / serving

1. Wash the kale. Cut the stalks off with the scissors. Tear the leafy part with your hands.
2. Spread the kale on a baking sheet lined with parchment or silicon. Sprinkle olive oil and sea salt over the kale.
3. Bake in an oven preheated to 350F for 10-15 minutes.

It is surprisingly crunchy and very light. Definitely much better than what I had expected. But I personally find kale tastier in salads or spreads.

What a neat idea! I've had dried salted seaweed before and that was very tasty, I bet these would be a great snack as well :)

I'm seeing kale chips/fries all over the place in the blogosphere... I think I need to start making them because they look so good!

I love baking kale! It's so healthy and easy and it's really amazing what a fun crunchy texture it gets. I can eat a ton in one sitting

I love baking Kale. We threw some in the oven at the last minute while roasting potatoes last week and it was wonderful. Great post!
