Baked kale chips are a healthy, low-calorie snack

Baking kale is one of the easiest ways to prepare this leafy green. And kale chips make one of the healthiest snacks around

Kale chips can be baked plain with a little oil, but adding parmesan cheese gives the crispy greens a bit of additional flavour.

  4. Place kale leaves in a large bowl.
  5. Spray with olive oil lightly to coat.
  6. Toss with parmesan cheese.
