So how does kale, that leafy green, enter into this picture? We received a bunch of kale through our CSA last week. I have yet to plant it myself since we get it through our CSA, but I might do so next year.
I just wasn't in the mood for soup or a casserole, which is what I normally do with kale in the fall, winter or spring. But soup in the summer time just doesn't interest me.
I have read about kale chips on many different blogs, but never gave it a try. Everyone raved about kale chips. " They taste just like potato chips" chirped the food blog world.
So I gave it a go.
- one bunch kale
- olive oil
- Parmesan - optional
- or any other spice or herb that floats your boat
2. Rinse the remaining leaves and dry well. A salad spinner comes in handy if you have one.
3. Cut or rip the leaves into small pieces.
4. Coat with olive oil, and sprinkle salt, Parmesan or your favorite herb.
5. Lay flat on a rimmed baking sheet.
6. Cook at 300 degrees for 30 minutes or until your desired crispiness.
7. Remove from oven. Wait until cool enough for you to eat. Eat your first kale chip.
8. You might hear yourself saying, "OMGoodness, I can't believe how much this sounds and crunches like potato chips."
9. Dare yourself to eat just one.
10. Enjoy! These are tasty and they do taste like kale, but sound a lot like potato chips. I will definitely make again and dry some different spice combinations. Be adventurous!
