This was one of those things that I heard about and never really got around to trying. Mr. Allan and I are heard about of town for a mini vacation and this weekend was a mission to clear the fridge of perishable items. I had a bunch of kale in the veggie drawer and thought..it'd be a great time to give this a whirl!
I had looked at some recipes last year and just kind of winged this...
First, take a bunch of kale and wash it thoroughly. Take each piece and rip it into bite sized pieces and try to omit using the stems and spines. Throw them in a large bowl, drizzle with olive oil. Spread onto a cookie sheet and season with salt. Cook at 300 degrees for about 20-22 minutes.
Here's (what's left) of the final product. They are these light crispy chips and they were so good. I think both myself and Mr. Allan were surprised at how roasting the kale on a lower temp could make them turn into such a crispy snack!
Kick Ass Kale Chips
1 large bunch of kale, washed, and torn into bite sized piece
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1/2 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Place kale in a large bowl. Drizzle with olive oil (you can eyeball the amount, but just make sure the leaves are mostly covered, don't drench it.)
Mix well and spread evenly on a cookie sheet. Season with salt. Cook for 20-22 minutes. Let cool and enjoy!
