Kale Chip Adventure (pics)

Friday, April 22, 2011

I've been wanting to try making the kale chips for a while and I finally did so today.
They're really easy. Cut or pull the leafy part off the thick stem and arrange on a cookie sheet or a big piece of foil. Spray with a little canola or olive oil and then sprinkle with a little salt or seasoning of your choice- I used Spike seasoning on mine because it's low sodium. Bake at around 325 degrees- but don't go to far away because they cook really quick.
And the results?...They were really good! A little on the delicate side so not to easy to dip in my home made fat free dip.
On a scale from 1-10 I'd say they're a 7.5

Before I put them in the oven:

    Instead of dipping them I find it easier to take a spoon and dip it then drizzle on top or barely touch one with a little dip....

    I have heard of these but never tried. I'll have to add it to my list when I see some fresh kale at the market. Thanks for sharing.

    I've been wanting to try this but never took the time to find out how to do kale chips. This looks so simple! Thanks for that.

    I've only purchased raw Kale chips with mock cheese which were dehydrated. Tasty, good for you and also very expense, over $10 for an ounce or two. I might have to try make them myself, in the oven or dehydrator. Thanks for the recipe.

    I've been making kale chips for a few years now. Kale is such an amazing veggie in terms of nutrition and we plant it in our garden, so for 4-5 months of the year it is virutally free!

It lasts in the garden well into December here in Wisconsin (the leaves don't freeze until it gets well below zero).

    Saw these on Hungry Girl. Guess it makes sense that they'd be a little delicate but that's good to new.

    I love kale chips. the only thing bad about them is that they disappear almost the moment they come out of the oven.

Yours look scrumptious!

    Congrats! If it's easier for you, I do them according to Jacques Pepin's method, which is like yours but uses a temp of 275-300 degrees F so they don't turn black.

  My friend made some in her food dehydrater. I'd never had them before but they were interesting. Do they retain all their nutrients this way?
