Kale is one of those super foods that are loaded with nutrients. But how to cook it? Here is one way–make Sesame Kale Chips. They are easy to make and taste great. They have to be better for you than potato chips, right?
Here is my recipe.
9 oz kale, washed, dried, center ribs snipped out
2 T lemon olive oil
1 tsp sesame oil
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1/8 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp celery salt
2 T sesame seeds
In a bowl, mix seasonings with 1 T sesame seeds and oils. Toss kale with seasoned olive oil using two forks. Sprinkle on remaining sesame seeds. Spread kale on parchment paper on a baking sheet. Bake in a convection oven set at 300 degrees F for 10 minutes. Toss leaves again on sheet to distribute. Bake an additional 15 minutes. Eat the same day.
