Monday Munchies: Hale to the Kale… Chip
Kale is healthy. Chips are not. Kale chips, therefore, are one of life’s pleasant little paradoxes. They’re crispy, salty… and totally good for you.
This is one of my girlfriend’s favorite things to make lately.
The positive? They are one of the lightest and crunchiest snacks I’ve ever had.
The negative? The Kale crumbs I find in the bed and couch.
Worth it? YES.
Check out the recipe I found from Horny Toad’s site this week. - Tony
- 1 bunch of organic kale
- olive oil
- sea salt
Preheat your oven to 325°. The secret to kale is that it responds really well to human touch, so use your hands to de-stem and tear it into chip-sized pieces. Put the kale in a glass baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt. Use your hands again to massage the kale until it’s completely coated with the salt and oil. Think happy thoughts or hum a happy tune while you do this, and the chips will be even more delicious and special tasting. Bake them for about 15 minutes, more or less, depending on how crispy you like ‘em.
