Crispy Roasted Kale Chips

I have been meaning to do this for a very long time now. I've even purchased kale for the sole purpose of making kale chips, and then gone and used it all for something else. Today, though! Today I made kale chips! And they were delicious!

Now, I've heard a lot of people say 'Oh, kale chips taste just like potato chips!' ... um, no. I'm not going to lie to you. These ARE crunchy yummy and extremely satisfying. But lets not kid each other, they do not taste like potato chips. Seriously, though, I didn't really want them to taste like potato chips anyway.

p.s. Did I mention they're delicious?

Ingredients:
- Kale
- Olive oil
- Salt

Directions:
- Rinse and thoroughly dry kale (I used my salad spinner).
- Cut out any stem pieces so you're left with only the dark green leafy bits.
- Drizzle with a small amount of olive oil and mix well (I put mine back into the salad spinner without the strainer part and gave it a good shake).
- Salt lightly (also did this in the salad spinner) and lay on a parchment lined baking sheet in a single layer.
- Bake at 300 degrees for 30 - 40 minutes (mine were perfect at 33 minutes). When they're crispy, they're done!
- Enjoy!

  1. So what do they taste like? I will admit I have never heard of Kale before.

  2. I just read about these in my current issur of Real simple. I even wrote it down on my list of things to try. Are they dip-able? They don't look very appealing, but I know better than to let that stop me, some of my favorite things to eat are really ugly!

  5. Wow, what a great way to get in your greens! I have to try it! And I LOVE that your recipes are simple with only a few ingredients... what else can you use kale for?? I confess I've never bought it.

  6. That's funny, I was catching up on your blog and just saw this... I've been wanting to make kale chips for over a month... can't seem to find kale, not in Publix or two different farmers markets.
