Lately, I've been hearing a lot about kale chips, so one evening I decided to see for myself what all the fuss was about. Boy was I glad I did. Hello - delicious AND a way to get in your dark leafy greens!
I followed this recipe, starting off by washing and thoroughly drying a head of kale. However, unlike the recipe, I only removed the part of the rib that extended beyond the leaves. I tossed the kale with 1 1/2T olive oil and sprinkled with about 1/2 tsp sea salt. I followed the reviewers' suggestions to make sure the olive oil really coated the leaves by 'massaging' with my hands and avoided over-salting. I baked at 275F for 20 minutes, turning once. The outside of the leaves were just crispy enough to crumble in your mouth while the rib portion retained a bit of moisture.
These made a great snack that would satisfy my afternoon cravings at work. I wish I'd used two heads of kale instead of one. I could have polished off the whole thing if I hadn't promised to leave B enough to taste it.
