Kale Chips Recipe

Elizabeth Perkins, best known for her role in the movie Big and the TV Show Weeds, discusses how she changed her diet after she was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes and shares her recipe for kale chips, her favorite diabetes-friendly snack.

1 bunch kale, washed and dried
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon fine sea salt, or salt to taste

- Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
- Pour olive oil and sea salt into a large Ziplock bag.
- Remove kale stems and chop into large-bite-sized pieces (They'll shrink a bit while baking).
- Put the kale in the bag — don't press the air out.
- Shake, shake, shake, then turn the bag upside down and shake some more.
- Once the chips are evenly coated, open the bag a bit and press the air out.
- Re-seal and massage the kale through the bag. This will help the tough leaves take the flavor.
- Lay kale on a lined baking sheet (or one that's sprayed lightly with cooking spray).
- Bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until crisp.
