Homemade Kale and Lettuce Chips

Kale or otherwise known as borecole is a very rich source of vitamin A, C, K, as well as fiber. Getting more of these vitamins  into our kids' diets can be a challenge.

I've tried crispy baked kale before and decided to see if we can reproduce this addicting snack at home.
Having plenty of overmature lettuce at this point, we tried the same recipe on these as well. Lettuce provides a lot of fiber and vitamin A but not as much as kale.

Cut up the kale and lettuce in 1 1/2 inch strips or chip size bits. Remove the vein of kale.
Preheat your oven to 275 F. 

 Toss the veggies with olive oil and sea salt. 
Bake for about 15-20 minutes or until the chips are crispy.

 Delicious kale chips were consumed by the kids in one sitting.

This is definitely a great use for overmature lettuce.
