Ok so I jumped on the kale chip bandwagon. All the cool kids were doing it.
And you know what? I’m glad I did. Because this stuff is awesome. Kale grows so damn fast in my garden, and only just faster than the bugs that eat it. So I have to do something with it, and chips fit the bill perfectly. They are crispy and salty and not bitter, like I expected. Whoever thought this up was a genius – kale is so fricken healthy!
So I tore my kale into bits, after first removing the spine.
I put it in a bowl with a drizzle of olive oil and stirred it all up until each piece was lightly coated.
Then I put it on some pizza trays (I like the holes in the bottom) and sprinkled with Himalayan crystal salt. This makes me sound like a pretentious prick, but I bought some ages ago from the bulk bins at the health food store, not really knowing what to do with it. Turns out it’s super healthy and chock full of good stuff. So I used it and I liked it.
And I baked at 200C for about 15 minutes. That was it. Oil, salt, bake.
Oh – beware of oversalting. I went a little nuts.
What do you like on your kale chips? I think I might branch out next time with some new flavours.
