The mad doctor Dragon-Chick is off on another of her insane experiments! Muhahaha!
My sister told me she made some kale chips. "I made kale chips with coconut oil and sea salt, baked for about 20 minutes at 300. Awesome!" she said. So I thought I'd try.
Being lazy to the bone, I bought a bag prewashed kale and ran half of it through the salad spinner. Then I dumped it in a bowl, drizzled some coconut oil, and ground some sea salt on to it. No; I didn't measure. It's against my personal philosophy. Then I massaged the whole mess together and put it on a cookie sheet to bake for the allotted 20 minutes at 300ºF.
Timer went off and I pulled out the pan, dumped the mess onto a paper plate and blotted with paper towels. A lot.
Since the mad doctor didn't have anyone to experiment on aside from the cat - and she wasn't interested - I tasted the concoction. ***drumroll***
Not bad. Ok, bad. Way too salty. And greasy. (blot, blot) tasted some more. It could be doable if I ease up on the oil and salt. Taste is not bad.
Fast forward a few hours. Yug. I can still taste coconut oil! Ok, clearly I used WAY too much, or we just don't get along. I have the other half of the bag. I might reserve some to put in a smoothly if I'm feeling particularly out of my mind. And maybe tomorrow I might try baking the other half. Maybe.
By the way, my personal philosophy appears to be never to do anything sane or reasonable. Don't ask.
PS: The inset image is how much coconut oil my sister used.
