    I wash em, spin em dry, lay on a cookie sheet, sprinkle with garlic
    powder, bake at 350 for about 15 minutes. Check for a bone dry state.

    Look into the DASH diet.

    How are the kitties, by the by?

    thanks so much easy enough for me anyway, do you think other spices would do
    like sage or oregano?

    cats are so happy i brought him home, HIS cat Storrmmee is following him
    around like a dog, and barbi is pretty close to velcroed to him. OEJ is now
    up to two pills a day for her thyroid, Trudi is increasingly stiff from her
    beebees in her back and chester and mathew harold are still the two stooges,
    lol, Lee

    I like them pretty simple, with just a wee bit of salt. As they get
    really dry and crispy, the saltiness seems to get stronger. So if
    you use any herbs or seasonings be very sparing with them and they
    tend to get stronger.

    I wash the kale, dry it well, tear it into pretty big potato chip
    sized pieces and toss them with about a teaspoon of olive oil before
    putting them on the pan and sprinkling them with a tiny bit of
    salt. You can bake them quickly as Kalima said or use a lower heat
    like 170 and letting them go longer to completely dry out.

    Be advised though, they are so damn good you will eat a whole bunch of
    kale at one sitting, seriously. They are that addictive.

    unfortunately salt is out. He is supposed to be eating low salt/low
    cholesterol, and heart healthy... a lot to switch all at once.

    I know he loves sage and oregano and garlic, so i figured if i could make
    these for a snack, he could have a crunchy and get the health benifits as
    well, thanks,

    Then try a teensy bit of Mrs. Dash seasoning. That should do the
    trick, lots of flavor and no salt !!

    I made them using Jacques Pepin's recipe. Cut in bite sized chips, coat
    lightly in olive oil and bake at no more than 350 degrees. Bake for about
    12 to 14 minutes.

    DD just hits them with a little PAM. I like oil, but I should stop
    that. She also keeps the kale pretty large. I personally don't care
    what size it is because I'm such a pig when it comes to eating that
    stuff.

    But you've just pigged out on something healthy, so bask in the glow!

    Well, I never have. I guess one could. I'm always vigilant about fat

    While you are at it try shaved turnip slices oiled and seasoned and

    And some Aleppo pepper. Be sure to cook them until they're crisp. Yum.

    I do small halved Brussels sprouts the same way. Yum again.

    Aleppo is not very hot, but has a lot of flavor. Even my wife and family
    don't complain.

    > do the brussels sprouts get chip crispy?


    Here's how I do the sprouts:

    I choose small ones. Wash, trim the bases, and halve through the base.
    Now start peeling off leaves (or petals, or whatever the hell those
    things are). Keep the leaves. Peel down until there's a little hard
    "half-ball" left. Cut off a bit more of the base if you need to. Repeat
    until you get tired, or until you've dealt with all the sprouts.

    Toss leaves and cores in a big bowl, add whatever seasoning you like (I
    use Aleppo pepper, some salt, and whatever dried herbs strike my fancy
    -- onion granules, Mrs. Dash, BBQ rub, smoked paprika, ...). Toss to
    mix, add a glug of good olive oil and toss again. Try to get all the
    seasonings to stick to the sprouts.

    Spread the sprouts out on a sheet pan (separate them so they aren't
    overlapping too much) and pop into a hot oven -- how hot depends on what
    else you're baking at the same time, but anything from 350 F up to maybe
    450 F will work. Check occasionally, and taste the separated leaves,
    until they are as brown and crunchy as you like (I like crunchy) --
    maybe 15-25 minutes, depending. By that time, the little lumps will have
    softened up nicely. Serve immediately.

    Depending on how much peeling you want to do, you can arrange for more
    separate leaves (crunchy), or more lumps (soft and sweet). The contrast
    between the two textures is part of the appeal.

    Note: People who like these will eat a *lot*; I can easily manage half a
    pound (raw weight) by myself, and I'm not a big guy.

    yum, never thought of using Brussels sprouts, that's a great idea !
    I love Brusselss srpouts so this is another way
    to enjoy them. I bet you could get sprouts haters to like these.
