Kale Chips

Kale chips are a healthy option to satisfy your salty cravings! They are a perfect appetizer or afternoon snack to replace chips. I learned this recipe in one of my nutrition classes and introduced them to my mom and now we make them every time I am home.

    Barbara Stingle Clarke It’s a Williams-Sonoma recipe: Minestrone with Chicken Meatballs. You can look up WS on Facebook and go to their recipes. It has red onion, carrots, celery, kale, garlic, tomato, chicken broth, cannellini beans, ground chicken meatballs and parmesan. It’s a hit with my whole family; the kids love it! I’ve been looking at some of your recipes; they sound great!
