Kale Chips.Saturday, September 10, 2011
I just made the best batch of kale chips ever! I can't believe how perfect they turned out and how I scarfed down a whole bowl. Even my bf and parents are eating them!
After tearing up all the leaves, I realized I had A LOT of kale. I didn't feel like making the full batch so I just refrigerated the rest for tomorrow. I only used as much kale leaves that would fit on a large baking pan.
1 bunch of kale
salt and pepper
roasted garlic flakes
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
1. Trim the kale leaves away from the thick stems and tear into pieces. Wash leaves and dry them using a salad spinner and paper towels. (make sure the leaves are completely dry)
2. Lay the kale leaves on a large baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil.
3. With your hands, mix in the oil and kale so that the leaves are evenly coated.
4. Sprinkle salt, garlic and pepper.
5. Place in oven for about 10 minutes or until leaves have turned crispy around the edges. (at the 5 minute mark, open the oven and stir the kale)
Make sure you keep an eye on the kale because if you overcook it, it will taste burnt and will crumble very easily. If you undercook, it will be limp and chewy. The recipe I followed stated 15 to 20 minutes but I took mine out at about 10 minutes and they were just perfect!!!
