Looking for a healthy snack as an alternative to potato chips? Kale chips to the rescue!
So, for the longest time I’ve wanted to make kale chips. I just never got around to it. Lately the kale in my winter CSA has been a bit on the dry side, so I figured now would be the perfect time to give it a try. I’ve read many variations on the recipe, instructions to bake from 350F to 450F, 10-15 minutes. Sprinkle with oil and salt. Various kinds of oils or salt.
My first attempt was with Pam at 450F. About 5 minutes after putting them in I went to check on them and realized they were burned. Oops. So for my second attempt I drizzled olive oil on them, cracked some sea salt over them, stuck them in the oven and watched them like a hawk. Score! Nice and crunchy. Even the stems, which I was supposed to remove but it was difficult because of the variety, were tasty. It was more roasted than crispy, but the oil and salt were finger-licking good. Way better for you than fried chips!
