Simple Recipe To Feed Your Kale Addiction – #1

Eat More Kale

I recently posted on Facebook, that I had a new addiction – KALE!  You wouldn’t believe the outpouring of kale dietary comments, recipes and products.  I decided to start a new series of posts – my addiction to kale.   I will continue to post new and exciting discoveries with this leafy green as I feed my healthy addiction.  We will begin with kale chips.  Who doesn’t love a nice salty chip, but this one won’t leave you feeling guilty.


  • Bunch/Bushel or whatever it is called of kale (any color)
  • Smoked Salt – check out Native Roots Market
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Preheat oven to 375 and find a large baking sheet.

Thoroughly wash kale and let it dry.

Tear the leafy green away from the stem into bite size pieces.  Toss pieces into a bowl and drizzle with olive oil.  The goal is to lightly cover the leaves without dousing them.

Spread the leaves on a baking sheet and sprinkle lightly with smoked salt from the Spice Bar at Native Roots Market.  Pop into the oven for about 1o minutes.  Once the buzzer goes off (don’t kid yourself – set the buzzer because you will get distracted), do your best to flip the chips and put back into the oven.  Keep an eye on the chips and remove once they look crispy.

Once they’ve cooled and are safe for the grabbing – enjoy in moderation.  YUM!
