Last year I saw some blogs all posting baked kale chips and I was intrigued. It's been on my list of things to make since then. But kale is not exactly one of the usual things on my grocery list and I don't purposely go out to buy. Luckily for me, my CSA from Hampstead Farms had kale in it this week (including a slew of vegetables I don't usually eat). So when I was presented with this opportunity, I dug up those recipes and whipped up some yummy, crisp kale chips!
Baked Kale Chips
adapted from smitten kitchen
- 1 bunch (about 6 ounces) kale
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Sea salt, to taste
- Preheat oven to 300°F.
- Rinse and dry the kale, then remove the stems and tough center ribs. Cut into large pieces, toss with olive oil in a bowl then sprinkle with salt.
- Arrange leaves in a single layer on a large baking sheet.
- Bake for 20 minutes, or until crisp. Place baking sheet on a rack to cool.
