For the Love of Kale Chips

9 Dec

A few years ago I was invited to a weekend workshop on healthy eating and all I took away from that weekend was how to make Kale Chips. I have since made them countless times and they are a huge hit with everyone including young kids and dogs.

Needed:

Huge Bunch of Kale (curly Kale seems to work best)

Olive Oil 2 Tsp. (though I use the Jamie Oliver Rule of 2 glugs).

Salt & Pepper to taste.

Steps:

  1. Wash the Kale really well and make sure it is very dry.
  2. Tear the Kale off the stems into good size pieces.
  3. Toss Kale pieces into a bowl and toss with Olive Oil, Salt & Pepper.
  4. Take coated pieces and cover cookie sheet – do not overlap that much. Image
  5. Cook for 8-10min at 350 degrees.
  6. Serve in bowl.
  7. Optional shaved parmesan cheese.

Since we have a local Fest of Kale…feel free to pair with your favourite Ale. Mine is Naramata Nut Brown Ale by Cannery Brewing.

    Hey Christina – welcome aboard! Glad to see a post by you. Kale Chips are a huge hit with Aunts too. I remember you making them when I was out there in the spring. They are very addictive (thank goodness they are healthy!) and I love the crispy texture. Yum!

      Yep, I decided to finally get one up before the end of this year. I think my focus will be on veggies…or the side dish (a side affair). Hoping to get Mom on there soon as well.

    Yum. I will be trying this out and offering it to the kids. They want chips, I’ll give em chips!

    Welcome aboard my lovely cousin.

    Even disguising it as potato chips isn’t going to get me to like kale.
