Pizza Kale Chips

We have a phrase that we use that I think describes today pretty well..."struggle bussing it." My MRI results didn't come out as well as I had hoped and I couldn't work out the way I had wanted to and it was hard to focus and I wasn't as productive as I had hoped so I won't get to sleep as long as I need to...

BUT despite these small things, I keep in mind that if I reflect and look for the positives to gain perspective, I will know that tomorrow will be a new opportunity for a better day and a change in my outlook.

And along with that thought, I am leaving you with a very easy and unique recipe for delicious Kale chips that will brighten any day.

Pizza Kale Chips

Ingredients
  • About 4 cups fresh kale, torn/cut into small pieces (I used the prepackaged kind)
  • 1/2 cup marinara/tomato sauce
  • 1 tsp Garlic or onion powder (optional)
  • 1 tsp each dried oregano and basil, or 1 tsp italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp salt or more to taste, if desired
  • Parmesan cheese to top
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees
  2. In a bowl, toss kale with marinara sauce, salt, and spices until mixed. Add more kale/marinara sauce to the mix as desired.
  3. Transfer to a greased baking sheet, and sprinkle with Parmesan. 
  4. Bake until kale dries, about 15-20 minutes depending on your oven.

    1. I am sorry, I don't count calories, but the calories in Kale are negligible, 1/2 cup marinara is usually around 40-45 calories, and parmesan will probably add another 30-40 calories. If you divide that by about 3 servings, either way I'd say it's a really good snack option :)
