How to Make Kale Chips

In Food, Uncategorized on January 28, 2010 at 8:30 am

Did you know you can transform kale into a salty, crunchy chip imposter?  It’s true, and the ensuing addiction is pretty darn healthy.

Here’s how:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Separate one head of kale into leaves and remove tough stems.  Wash and DRY thoroughly – extra moisture will inhibit crisping.  Break into small pieces, toss with olive oil and sea salt, and spread in a baking sheet.  Bake for 15-30 minutes depending on your taste for char.

Some variations: dust with cumin and curry powder for an Indian bent, or with a bit of vinegar for salt-and-vinegar fans.

These New York Naturals Vegan Kale Chips are a slightly less healthy version I’m itching to pick up next time I’m in New York. Available online or at LifeThyme, Westerly, and Perlandra, and discovered via NYMag.

  1. These are fabulous!

  2. These sound great!!! I’ll have to try out this recipe
