Is there a better way to eat a vegetable than in the form of a chip? Kale is low in calories and rich in many nutrients including fibre, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, vitamin A and  vitamin C.

Ingredients:

One bunch of kale, washed and dried

1 tbsp olive oil

salt (to taste)

Optional: 3 tbsp nutritional yeast

Directions:

With a knife or kitchen shears, remove the leaves from the thick stems. Tear the kale into bite-sized pieces. Toss with olive oil, salt, and nutritional yeast (if desired).

In the oven: Set the oven to 350ºF. Spread the kale pieces in a single layer on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet. Bake 10-15 minutes, until crisp (be careful not to burn them).

In a food dehydrator:  Spread the seasoned kale pieces in a single layer on the dehydrator racks. Dehydrate for about 4 hours (until crisp).
