Kale chips

This may be one of the weirdest foods I’ve ever made. Weird, but awesome. Kale chips.

Much like potato chips, but more… leafy. Kind of like if you grazed in the woods in October… but tastier.

Seriously though, these are really good, and strangely addictive. They’re light as a feather and crispier than potato chips, with a slightly bitter edge. Totally odd, and totally delicious.

You will need:
1 bunch kale
1 tbsp olive oil
Kosher salt, to taste

Preheat the oven to 300ยบ F. Tear the leafy parts of the kale away from the ribs into chip-sized pieces. Rinse and thoroughly dry (if the kale isn’t dry, it won’t crisp up properly). Toss with olive oil, sprinkle with salt, and spread across two baking sheets in a single layer.

Bake until crisp, about 20 minutes. Cool on the baking sheets, and serve.

Weird, right? Weird, but awesome.

  1. Yeah! Simple and delicious and – oh yeah – healthy.

    I’m hoping to make some kale chips of the dehydrated sort in the next week or two. I’ll let you know how it goes…
