Baked Kale Chips

Every so often, I noticed a trend on food blogs.  There are some groups out there that choose a recipe, make/bake the recipe and subsequently post.  Those blogs normally overload the feed on Foodgawker or Tastespotting.  But, every so often, someone will make a recipe and others will take note.  This sparks a few subsequent posts and they always intrigue me.  Most recently, I noticed several posts about Baked Kale Chips.  I decided it was time to give in.  And, I am so glad that I did.  

I thought these were incredible.  You drizzle some olive oil over the Kale leaves and you can season them as much as you want.  Better yet, they are healthy!  Kale is an excellent source of vitamin A and vitamin C.. It is also a very good source of dietary fiber, copper, calcium, vitamin B6 and potassium.  I'm not sure if I'll omit regular baked potato chips from my life, but these will certain fill the crunchy/salty void when I'm looking for a snack.

Even Ron tried one.  (But, in true Ron fashion, he complained about the "damn parsley cnip green thing" taste that stuck with him for the entire day.)
