Anyone tried Kale Chips?
Well, for starters, if you are a true chip lover (like myself) these little suckers really shouldn’t have the word ‘chip’ in their name… For the purposes of this blog we’ll call them Kale Crisps. Anyway, buy a bunch of Kale (it’s by the lettuce). Chop it up (the leafy part – remove all of the thick spiny parts).
Toss it in a bowl with about 2 tablespoons of Olive Oil.
Spread it out in one layer on a cookie sheet. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and some grated parm.
Throw it into a preheated oven (350 degrees) until it’s crispy and dried out. If you’re going by looks- still green but shriveled. Not brown (see above). This is a picture of Kale Crisps cooked 5 minutes too long. 20 minutes was too long, if that helps anyone.
Scoop it up (feels like gathering some fall leaves off the lawn). Put it in a bowl. Snack on the pumpkin-seed-tasting Crisps. Remind yourself that this is a healthier snack than the real chips you want to be nibbling on as you prepare dinner. Enjoy a 2nd scoop of Blue Bell for dessert tonight. After all, you ate Kale instead of chips!
