Leafy Green Chips


golden been greens chips

Our CSA has been packed full of greens and I’ve been trying to use them in different ways so we don’t get bored. I’ve been making a lot of green smoothies, soups, and roasted veggies but sometimes we get to the end of the week and still have veggies left over. I’ve been making chips with some greens as they’re a good snack and you can use an entire bunch of any greens. These are good out of any kale variation or chard, but this week I made them with the greens on our golden beets.

Just wash and trim your greens and cut any tough stalks off. Put in a large bowl and sprinkle with olive oil and salt (garlic salt is good here too!). Toss so every leaf gets coated with the oil and salt. Spray a baking/cookie sheet with non-stick spray and lay out your leaves, trying not to have them overlap as much as possible. Bake in a 350° oven for about 12-18 minutes, depending on the size of your leaves. The bigger they are, the longer they take to dry out and crisp up. When they look like dried leaves, take them out and let them cool for a few minutes- and enjoy :)
