Lately, I have been into creating quick and healthy side dishes. It could be the fact that this time of year I always over indulge in my food consumption and rarely feel like cooking. Or, that I am still wearing sweat pants every night when I come home from work due to Thanksgiving.

I was recently catching up on some of my go-to food blogs, when I stumbled upon this recipe. Kale Chips. Apparently, they are all the rage right now in the foodie world.

How did I miss this memo?

On Sunday, when I was drooling over the produce section at Whole Foods, I decided I should give the recipe a try. I have always just sauteed Kale so when I found out you could bake these suckers, I was ecstatic!
The recipe is beyond easy, and the best part is, you can dip the chips into anything your hearts desire. My favorite, a mixture of mayo and Dijon mustard. Love it!
