Kale Chips

A few of the blogs I read had mentioned something called “Kale Chips,” which is essentially just baked kale. I don’t eat kale often, but I thought this recipe might result in a good substitute for chips or other addictive crispy snacks!

Anna and I bought two bunches of these leafy greens.

Then Anna cut the leaves from the stems so we could wash them real quick.

We let the leaves dry on some dish towels. A salad spinner was called for, but I don’t have one of those cool gadgets.

While the kale dried a bit, we combined the oil mixture:

*Drizzle of EVVO
*Splash of apple cider vinegar
* 1/4 t of salt

After everything had been whisked together, we threw the kale into the bowl and began tossing it.

Then we spread the leaves onto two baking sheets (lined with parchment for easy clean up!).

And stuck them into the oven, which was set on 400.

Once the kale had been in the oven for about 15 minutes, we tested its crispiness, let it stay in for another 5 minutes and then pulled ‘er out!

These were . . . very different from anything I have ever had before. Anna and I both agreed that the salt was way too much. Vinegar does enough to flavor the chips. We ate most of them with ketchup, but Anna was convinced they’d taste better with honey mustard (she loves HM).

Let me know if you try them out!
