Kale chips. They might be one of the first “health foods” I ever made. You know, when I started cooking for myself instead of eating whole-grain cereals or veggie subs for every meal. If you haven’t tried them yet, you’ve been missing out! And if you have tried them, you’re probably thinking, “Geez, Christina, you’re sharing a recipe for kale chips now? I already have two dozen, lovingly curated since they became a health trend six years ago!” To which I say: Fair point. I don’t know how this recipe got lost in the shuffle. These Garlic Salt Kale Chips are literally the only way I’ve ever made kale chips and probably the only way I ever will. With just oil, salt, and optional garlic powder, it doesn’t get any easier! They are the perfect antidote to the chip cravings my husband often gets, plus they’re a great way to use up any leftover kale, which I seem to collect. Especially in the winter when an ice-cold kale smoothie sounds like a really terrible idea!
