Yum winter snacks, oh yea.

My favorite way to eat kale is roasted, or popcorn kale as I like to call it. It is super simple and shockingly tasty.

I’ve noticed roasted kale chips recently at Whole Foods in the snack aisle and it is crazy expensive. There are “recipes” (I hesitate to call them that because of how easy it is!) all over the internet, like so:

Simply cut up your kale into bite-sized pieces (I toss the stems), rub them down with a little oil of your choice (I use olive), salt, and pop into a pre-heated 375 degree oven for about 20 minutes. I keep my eye on them, and when they’re brown and crispy they are ready for snacking.

There are lots of variations as well – garlic salt, curry powder, chili seasoning, flavored oil, balsamic vinegar… you get the picture.

This is a great way to get some veggies in, and very kid-friendly.
