Today is the first time I’ve ever had kale chips. I have seen people rave about these and now I know why!
Let me show you how to make kale chips in the oven. Talk about easy! (Check out all of my easy recipes while you’re here!)
This week and last week we’ve had kale in our organic produce delivery. I was super excited to try it. I’ve had it in a salad when we’ve dined out before, but I’ve always wondered what all the rage is about these kale chips I hear people making. Let me tell you… pretty awesome treat. And they are pretty good for you.
- 1 medium bunch of kale, washed (ours was curly)
- 1 T olive oil
- 1/4 t Kosher salt
- fresh cracked pepper, according to taste
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Lay the clean leaves flat on the parchment paper.
Use a knife to cut out the middle rib of each leaf. Then, cut the leaves into 2 inch (or so) pieces.
Toss the kale pieces into a bowl (or ziplock bag) and coat evenly with the olive oil.
Now, let’s take the kale pieces and place them on the cookie sheet, spaced out.
Sprinkle them with the Kosher salt. More or less depending on your preference.
Crack a few cracks of fresh pepper of them.
Pop them in a 350° oven for about 8-10 minutes.
Once done, remove them from the oven and let them cool.
Once cool they are ready to eat.
Let me tell you, these are light and flavorful. Totally amazing.
Honestly, I was not expecting them to be so light and airy. They kind of just melt in your mouth.
One medium size bunch of these chips made a great afternoon snack for all of us!
