We love potato chips. No, let me re-phrase that. WE LOVE POTATO CHIPS! There, that somewhat emotes our love for potato chips. But our problem is that we can’t stop at one chip or two chips, or 20 chips. We have to eat the whole bag or we are not happy.
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.
So I gave it a go.
- one bunch kale
- olive oil
- Parmesan – optional
- or any other spice or herb that floats your boat
1. Remove the thick stems and center ribs.
3. Cut or rip the leaves into small pieces.
5. Lay flat on a rimmed baking sheet.
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!
