I was introduces to this dish in one of my visits to our local farmers market. I love going there since you get to see all the fresh produce and local food that people make and I always find something new.The fun part is that next to every booth you can meet the owner and usually they offer you a taste of their goods. A few weeks, a go I saw a new stand that offers these cooked Kale chips – this green (and kind of boring) green, in a chips format – who would have believed that!
So I tried making it and it’s surprisingly good. Of course it taste like Kale, but it’s very crispy and has a seaweed flavor, which I love. So, leave the popcorn aside when you watch a movie at home – try the healthy way and make baked crispy kale – it will take you 10 minutes from start to end.
[Total time: 10 minutes, preparation: 3 minutes, Baking: 7 minutes]
1 bunch of curly kale
1 tbsp of salt
Olive oil cooking spray
[Improvising options: not much here besides Olive oil cooking spray --> any kind of oil you like]
First, make sure the kale is completely dry. Hold the Kale by its stem, and tear the leaf from the stem (the stem will not baked well so make sure its removed completely). Once you removed the stem, tear each leaf to 2-3 pieces. Arrange them on a baking sheet, spray them with some olive oil and sprinkle some salt. That’s it!
Bake in 420f for 6-7 minutes or until the kale starts to brown in the edges. Careful, if you wait to long it will get burned. Allow the kale to chill and it’s ready. You won’t believe this boring green became so crispy and tasty. Enjoy.
