I am probably one of the rare folk who enjoy grocery shopping. During my weekly trip to Trader Joe’s I picked up some chopped and washed kale. Inspired by the prospect of healthy eating, I immediately went home to bake up some kale chips.
These are actually quite delicious. I decided to make two batches from one bag. Using two cookie sheets, I seasoned each batch differently. Both turned out exceptional.
1 bag cut and washed kale Olive oil spices (onion powder, garlic powder, curry, cumin and salt)
Curry kale Chips:
equal parts: onion powder, yellow curry powder and cumin, a dash of salt. (make about 3 Tbs)
Garlic and Onion Kale Chips:
equal parts onion powder and garlic powder, a dash of salt. (make about 3 Tbs)
1) Mix seasoning
2) Pour about 1/2 of the kale into a large mixing bowl. Splash some olive oil over the kale and use your hands to spread the olive oil into the crevasses of the leaves.
3) Toss in seasoning and continue to mix using your hands until coated.
4) Spread over baking sheet and bake at 320 degrees for about 20-25 minutes or until crisp.
Even if you decide to try only one seasoning, I highly recommend dividing the kale chips into two baking sheets. Remember to swap the sheets/racks and give the chips a quick stir after 10 minutes of baking.
