{Baked Seasoned Kale Chips}

Kale, a green leafy veggie that kinda scared me at first!  Yes, I admit... me the veggie loving queen was scared to try kale at first.  But you know what, kale has truly become one of my favorite leafy greens!  Just check out a few of the delicious kale salads that have been featured on the blog, here and here!  

But kale chips have been my most recent obsession!  Kale chips make the perfect crunch snack or even a delicious side dish to accompany dinner.  These crunchy green chips are effortless to make and are down right tasty!  Just toss chopped kale with a bit of olive oil, seasonings and bake to crispy perfections!  Now go conquer your kale fear (if you have one) and bake these little beauties today! 

Baked Seasoned Kale Chips: 
Brunch N'Cupcakes 
Serves 2-4

2 Teaspoons Olive Oil 
1 Large Bunch Dinosaur Kale - Roughly Chopped 
1/2 Teaspoon Salt 
1 Teaspoon Garlic 
1/2 Teaspoon Cumin 
1/2 Teaspoon Chili Powder 

1- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 
2- In a medium bowl toss chopped kale with olive oil and spices.  Rub kale for 2 minutes to ensure that olive oil and spices are evenly distributed. 
3- Spread kale out on a baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until crunchy and slightly browned.   I usually stir the kale after it has been in the oven for 10 minutes to ensure even browning.
