Kale Chips made with the Microwave!

Kale Chips made with the Microwave!

Crave a salty and crispy snack at 3 PM?  Friends about to drop by and need a lightning speed appetizer to munch on?  Homemade kale chips made in the microwave are ready to devour in only 5 minutes!  Get creative with the spices for fun flavored chips, or have your friends or kids choose their own spices.  Snacking can be healthy, fast, easy, and yummy 😊

Serves: 1

Prep time: 0

Cooking time: 5 minutes

What (your ingredients):

2 stalks of kale

1 teaspoon avocado oil or olive oil

Pinch of salt

How (your directions):

Tear curly kale into large pieces and discard the stalk.

Massage with oil to make sure kale pieces are thoroughly coated.  Then sprinkle with salt.

Tip: You could be adventurous and add a dash of your favorite seasonings-garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, cayenne, etc.

Distribute kale pieces onto plate, allowing a small amount of room between each piece.

Microwave 3 minutes.  After 3 minutes, if the kale is not a “chip” yet, continue to microwave, checking every 1 minute.  My chips took a total of 5 minutes to create a crispy chip.

Enjoy immediately!

Why (the science):  I hardly need to mention the health benefits of kale, since it has been a trending vegetable for a few years now!  But now enjoy kale as a crispy chip that only takes 5 minutes and is flavored to your liking 😊
