My sister made these for a snack Saturday night. I have to admit, I wasn’t going to try them because A) it’s a vegetable and I don’t really like vegetables (or so I keep saying) and B) I believe no vegetable besides a potato should be turned into a chip.
Sigh. I know I’ve said this before — I’ll try anything once. So, I tried these.
And I was glad that I did! I’ve never had kale anything. This was nice, healthy treat. My sister got the recipe from smittenkitchen.com: http://smittenkitchen.com/2010/03/baked-kale-chips/
- 1 bunch kale from your local farmer’s market
- 1 T. olive oil
- Sea salt, to taste
- cracked black pepper, to taste
- Preheat oven to 300°F.
- Rinse and dry the kale, then remove the stems and tough center ribs. Cut into large pieces, toss with olive oil in a bowl then sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- Arrange leaves in a single layer on a large baking sheet lined mine with parchment paper for easy clean-up. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until crisp.
