Popcorn and Kale Chips

Movie nights are a regular occurance in our household. Usually on Friday night, it's our way to unwind from the hectic week and relax as a family. Being a family of foodies, the snack is usually more important than the movie itself. Here is one of our favorites-- Popcorn and kale chips.

  • Popcorn Kernels
  • Olive Oil
  • Cooking Spray
  • Sea Salt
  • A large bag of fresh Kale
  • Seasoning (we use Old Bay)
The Popcorn:
  • Cover the bottom of a medium sized pot with olive oil.
  • Grind or sprinkle in some sea salt.
  • Add a layer of popcorn kernels on the bottom of the pot.
  • Cover and turn the heat to "high." Continually move the pot back and forth until you hear the popcorn begin to pop. Remove from heat when the popping slows down. The lid will usually start to rise up due to the popcorn.
  • Pour into a large bowl.
The Kale Chips:
  • Throughly wash and dry the kale. You may want to remove some of the stems if they are really thick.
  • Line a cookie sheet with foil. Cover with cooking spray (or use an olive oil mister).
  • Arrange the kale on the cookie sheet. Drizzle a little more olive oil. Season.
  • Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes, until they become crispy.
Let the kale chips cool and then combine them with the popcorn. Enjoy this healthy, savory movie treat! It's one of Lila's faves.
