Onion Kale Chips (30 minutes)

August 25, 2016
Onion Kale Chips - made in the oven in under 30 minutes! Easy & delicious these kale chips are the perfect movie night snack or anytime you're craving something salty & crunchy. | thehealthfulideas.com

Kale chips are officially my new obsession. It’s not that I didn’t know or like kale chips before, it’s because kale chips aren’t sold here and kale is also pretty hard to come by (as crazy as it may sound to you Americans). That’s why I get so happy whenever I come across kale here because it’s so rare. The only variety that’s available here is curly kale so I don’t really use it for salads as it’s impossible to chew. Instead, I add it to smoothies and more importantly make loads and loads of kale chips!
