Baked Lemon-Kale Chips Recipe

These crunchy baked lemon-kale chips make an excellent snack by themselves, and also crumble into a tasty seasoning.

| November/December 2013

It would not be an exaggeration to say that kale is one of the healthiest vegetables on the planet. By eating one cup of chopped kale, you are getting 9 percent of your daily needs for calcium, 206 percent of your vitamin A, 134 percent of vitamin C and 685 percent (whoa) of your vitamin K needs. Kale provides all this plus copper, potassium, iron, manganese and phosphorus for only 33 calories per cup. These crunchy kale chips make an excellent snack by themselves, and also crumble into a tasty seasoning. Stir a handful of the chips into half a cup of cottage cheese to make a delicious, protein-rich dip for vegetables.
