Gardening That Grows With Me

Kale Chips

It’s early July and the kale in our garden is growing like gangbusters.  After reading several recipes on the internet, I decided to try and make my own kale chips.  While they won’t replace potato chips (especially for my kids) I really liked the slightly nutty flavour and the crunch followed by chewy texture.  The first time I made them I added way to much oil & salt — remember a little really does go a long way.

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Clean and remove the center rib from a large bunch of kale.  Dry completely then tear into 2 inch sized pieces.
  3. Transfer to two cookie sheets.  Sprinkle “lightly’ with olive oil and toss.  I’m estimating I used less than a tablespoon for each filled cookie sheet.  Next sprinkle with sea salt.
  4. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, turning half way through.  Bake until they are just crispy.
  5. Cool then place chips in a sealed tupperware container. They will stay crispy for about a week.
