I finally got the grocery store near me to have Kale in their inventory. It is the only store around here that has it and I have a feeling that I am the only one that has been buying it, so to make sure that they keep on stocking it, I have been buying a lot and using it often. On Pizza it was great, but Kale chips have become a favourite around here… well… for Colin and I especially.
If you haven’t heard of Kale chips, well you are missing out on something. They are great for snacking on and their crunch is so satisfying. Colin, who at the moment is going through a bit of a picky phase tried them and has fallen in love with them. He cant get enough and has finished off a baking sheet full a few times now.
Of course, not only are they satisfying and delicious, they are also really easy to make.
Preheat oven at 350
To take off the Kale leaves from the stem, run your hand on the stem and pinch while pulling off the leaves, what you can pull off is what is tender enough to eat. Discard the rest.
Tear the larger leaves into bite sized pieces, but not too small, they will shrink while baking.
Wash and dry the leaves and then place in bowl and toss with 2 tbsp of olive oil and about a tsp of salt…
Place on baking sheet in a single layer (I use two sheets) and bake for about 15 min until dry and crisp but not burnt.
