Simple Snack: Kale Chips

Kale chips. Did you know just how easy they can be? I have always used the oven to bake them and the results were consistent and always delicious. Recently, I was crunching on some kale chips that my mother-in-law made. We were talking about how easy they were. I asked if she baked them in the oven? No, she said. What was her secret? I had to find out!The secret is that these kale chips can be ready in under 3 minutes.

Then they go into the microwave.
The microwave. Yes, you read that correctly! The kale chips get crisped in the microwave checking at 30 second intervals for up to 3 minutes. After the kale chips are crisped to absolute perfection I seasoned the chips with a touch of sea salt.
This is a speedy snack that I can make in no time flat!! I hope you have not moved on from the kale chip craze, friends! Go grab a bunch of kale today and enjoy this satisfying snack for yourself!
