Everywhere we look people are posting pictures of Kale Chips. We didn’t even know that Kale was for eating, we thought it was to decorate salad bars at restaurants!
1 Head of Kale
Directions – Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Wash and dry kale. Cut off the stems, cut into 1 1/2 pieces then lightly drizzle with olive oil and rub it into the leaves (be sure not to use too much.) Season with Sea Salt and then put in the oven for 15 minutes turning them halfway through (check them at 10.) . Be sure to watch them so that you don’t burn.
We posted this question on our Facebook page “So we bought some Kale and are going to make these Kale Chips everyone is talking about. Any tips?” These were the responses we got:
Angie: My family loves Kale chips. I cook at 375 for 10-15 minutes (turning half way through), we wanted ours crispy. Be sure to watch and make sure you don’t burn them.
Laura: Don’t use too much olive oil or they will be soggy some chili pepper or paprika spices them up a bit!
Jacque: YUM! My favorite. Add olive oil, garlic powder and sea salt…I like them baked at 325 verses 250 they get crisper faster.
Carol: I have tried them and think they taste like dirt! Good Luck!
Christine: If you have a sprayer for the oil that helps to “not get too much”
Kate: I can’t wait to hear about this one!!!
Melissa: Also when you pull them from the oven, leave on the cookie sheet so they cook a little longer but do not get over cooked in the oven.
Melissa: Love kale chips too. Don’t over bake them or they will be dust in your mouth. Lol. Gross. I take mine, rinse well with water and put them in a salad spinner to get the water off. Cut them into pieces (chunks) and toss with a little olive oil. Then sprinkle with salt. Never had a problem with them being too oily it whatever. A little goes a long way and it’s good to do it in a bowl.
Jennie: Spend a little time “massaging” the oil into the kale, make sure not to put too much on the cookie sheet, they need to be moderately spaced apart or they won’t get crispy.
