I have to share this super easy and healthy recipe for kale chips. Whenever I make them, they rarely make it out of the pan because well, I’ll admit it; it’s me. I’ll walk in the kitchen while the chips are still cooling and say, “Ooh, kale chips,” and take a handful. Next time, I return — same thing. Nobody else in my family has this compulsion to return to the kitchen repeatedly to see what treat awaits upon the stove. But, it’s healthy, and better than eating regular potato chips.
Now on to the easy recipe:
- Rinse a bunch of kale and tear leaves into smaller pieces; discard stems.
- Let the kale dry completely. You may want to dry it faster patting the kale with a clean dish towel. I emphasize this step as I impatiently try to hurry things along and not wait, but the chips get much crispier if you let them dry.
- After the kale is dry, preheat an oven to 300 degrees.
- Spray a baking sheet with Pam or lightly coat with olive oil.
- Put the kale on the sheet and spray lightly with Pam.
- Sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt and/or other spice.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes or until desired crispiness.
When I first tried it, I thought, “these are weird, but good.” One recipe described it as crack-like. Try it and see.
