I know kale is a ‘big thing’. At work we are constantly using kale. People can’t get enough of it. I do not like kale. I’m a cabbage girl. I would, could eat cabbage everyday. However, if someone gives me some free kale I am down doing something with it (Jude and I are constantly baffled by food waste from all the plates we clear.
So when my roommates left a large bag of kale in my hands, I went for the kale chips, merely because I don’t mind kale when it’s seasoned and crispy. Plus it’s super easy. When I’m kicking life ass, sometimes I want something quick to make. Or when I spend all day in a kitchen cooking for other people, I want something kind of brainless and quick when I get home. I did decide to do two different kinds of kale though since I had so much to work with.
Sea Salt and Pepper Kale Chips
- 1 bunch of Kale
- 1/4 cup melted lard
- Sea Salt
Let’s Make it Happen: Toss kale with lard, salt and pepper. Bake at 400, keep shuffling it around until crispy.
Lime and Coconut Kale Chips
- 1 bunch of kale
- 1/8 cup lime juice
- 1/8 cup melted coconut oil

Let’s Make it Happen: Toss kale with lime juice, coconut oil, and sea salt. Bake at 400, keep shuffling until crispy.
THAT’S IT! HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND!
