About Roasted Kale Chips

Better than popcorn or potato chips! Moreover, roasted kale chips are definitely more nutritious!

If you’ve seen kale chips at your local grocery store you might have been put off by the price tag. But thankfully we can easily make this snack ourselves and avoid a hefty price tag.

Ingredients needed for Roasted Kale Chips

Kale massaged with a tablespoon of olive oil.

If you have kale on hand, chances are you’ll probably have everything else in the house.

If you don’t happen to have smoked sweet paprika on hand, you can substitute other spices. For instance, you could use a nice apple cider vinegar to make roasted salt and vinegar kale chips.
