Seriously, make these tonight. This method really takes the bitterness out of the kale so even if you hate kale you will really really love these kale chips.
One of my closest friends, and fellow dietitian, made these for us in October and last night I got inspired to make them for a couple other friends who were coming over for dinner. Prepping the kale might seem a little daunting but I believe it is well worth it.
Debby’s Kale Chips
1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Wash the kale throughly under cold water and dry very well in a salad spinner or with paper towels. (Dirt tends to hide in the curly edges of kale so pay special attention that area.)
2. Tear the leaves off the stalk, or rib, of the kale and then tear the leaves into chip-sized pieces.
3. Massage the olive oil each piece of kale and arrange in one layer on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and bake for 8-10 minutes or until crispy.
Really that is all. I think it would be delicious to play with herbs and spices in this recipe. Next time I make them I am going to use a little cayenne pepper to give them some heat.
Enjoy! And let us know what you think.
PS- Sorry for the lack of photos. We have not been photo documenting our cooking lately due to our strange schedules leaving us little free time. I decided that we just need to share the food we have been cooking regardless of if we have the photos to share. I hope you don’t mind.
