So, awhile back on Facebook I saw one of my highschool friends post about how amazing Kale chips were. I was intrigued and had been dying to try them out but could never find Kale in my store. It doesn’t help that I had no idea what kale looked like – even today, I was looking it up on my phone and comparing the pictures from El Google to make sure I had the right stuff. Anyways, I digress. I finally was able to find some kale and had the time to try it. I’m not disappointed! The recipe was super easy and quick and the “chips” are actually really tasty! I wonder if you can OD on these things!
You can alter the seasoning to taste, I used garlic and parmesan on one set and some Penzey’s spice mix I had on the other (Northwood seasoning I think). I definitely like the parmesan ones best (of course, I love cheese!).
(excuse the cell phone pics, that’s the only camera that had any batteries at the time)
Now, getting the right baking time can be tricky. To little and you get limp kale, too much and it tastes burnt. In my batch I had all three – perfect, burnt, and limp. I think because I wasn’t super careful about my sizes.
In any case, this was an awesome experiment that I’ll certainly try again (I better, I still have 1lb of Kale to cook..haha).
What’s your favorite healthy snack?
