Kale Chips

    This is for you Carrie.  Years ago Carrie introduced us to kale chips and thus began my and my daughters addiction to kale chips.  Since that day I've been working on perfecting the recipe. I've finally come up with how to make them crispy but not burnt in the least amount of time. 
     First before the recipe let's take a look at the benefits of kale:  
Kale is high in iron, it has more iron than beef
Kale is high in Vitamin K
It is an anti-inflammatory food
Kale is a great detox food since it filled with fiber and sulfur   
It has more calcium than a cup of milk

Kale Chips
1/2 bunch of kale 
olive oil
garlic powder
sea salt

     Preheat oven to 325 for regular or 275 for convection bake oven. Tear kale into bite size pieces removing the stem. Place into a mixing bowl.  Pour a small amount of olive oil on top.  You want enough to cover each piece but not so much that it's dripping off. Sprinkle with garlic powder and sea salt.   Then massage the oil, garlic powder and salt into the kale.  Spread kale on a cookie sheet.  In a regular oven bake for 6 minutes then turn off the oven and leave for 10 minutes.  If cooking in a convection bake oven cook 8 minutes then turn off the oven and leave for 10 minutes.  Take out to cool and enjoy.
