Kale Chips

Posted in , by blkris | Edit
        We usually juice kale and put it in our smoothies.  We decided to plant some this year in our garden and it has turned out quite well.  It produces a TON without any work.  We have kale coming out of our ears!
        My hubby found a recipe for kale chips.  They turned out pretty well, actually better than I was expecting.  To me, they have kind of a cabbage taste, which I like anyway.  They are really easy too and only take 20 minutes.  The first batch we did had way too much olive oil and salt.  The olive oil kept it from crisping up.  The second batch was much better with less oil and salt and when you eat them, they pretty much disintegrate in your mouth.  It is a weird feeling, but I don't mind eating them because I am getting in some more vegetables!

Found on: Food Network
  • 1 head kale, washed and thoroughly dried
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Sea salt, for sprinkling


Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F.
Remove the ribs from the kale and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces. Lay on a baking sheet and toss with the olive oil and salt. Bake until crisp, turning the leaves halfway through, about 20 minutes. Serve as finger food.
