Everyone and their mother knows about kale chips by now, but I thought I take a quick moment to add my voice to the chorus of those singing in the kale chip chorus.
Dang! They’re good, aren’t they?! And easy too!
Just tear the leaves of that tough stem that runs all the way up the middle. Tear them into chip size pieces. Wash them and dry them really, really well. Coat them with a tablespoon or so of olive oil. Lay them on a baking sheet and sprinkle with salt. Not too much salt, mind you–you’re not supposed to eat too much of that stuff! Now bake ’em at 315 F for… crud… I forgot to set the timer again.
I baked them for the amount of time it took to switch the laundry to the dryer, check Facebook and Twitter and pick out some music… about fifteen minutes. Most recipes suggest fifteen to twenty minutes of baking. Pull them out when they look like this:
Just try not to eat all of them at once and feel a little less guilty when you do.
