Consumer Reports tests 'healthier' veggie chips, finds plenty of good options

Posted April 2, 2015

Vegetable chips made of kale, black beans and peas are marketed as super healthy, but are they? Consumer Reports tests out the alternatives.

Make your own kale chips:

½ bag (16 ounces) kale greens, washed, trimmed, and cut into bite-sized pieces, dried completely
2 cloves garlic, smashed
2 tablespoons olive oil
½ teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 375° F. Place garlic and oil in a small bowl and let it sit for 30 minutes. Discard garlic.
Pile kale on two large baking sheets. Toss with olive oil, coating each leaf. Sprinkle with salt and spread evenly on the baking sheets.
Bake 5 minutes. Toss kale using tongs to ensure even cooking. Bake until kale turns dark green and is very crisp, about 7 to 9 minutes. Do not overcook. Cool before serving.
