Kale Chips

Kale chips is that kind of easy recipe, that really needs no recipe... like salad. You can really do whatever you'd like with a salad, use whatever vegetables you like and throw together whatever kind of dressing with ingredients that you think would compliment each other. With kale chips, you can dress them up however you would like.

General directions: cut stems off, lay one layer thick on parchment paper in the over to bake, use some sort of oil (not too much if possible, but enough to 'dust' them so they don't burn or break apart as much) and use some something else (garlic? salt?).

Jayanna has made these for me in the past and I love them, but since it was my first time trying them on my own, I decided to follow a recipe. This recipe comes from Tosca Reno's Eat Clean Cookbook (the latest one).

Kale Chips

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 25-30 minutes
Yield: 4 servings

1 bunch kale, well rinsed, dried and trimmed
1-2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp roasted garlic salt
1 Tbsp dried, crumbled oregano
Freshly ground black pepper to taste

-Preheat oven to 275 F
-Prepare baking sheets by lining with parchment paper
-Place kale leaves, oil, garlic salt, oregano and pepper in a shallow bowl and toss lightly
-Arrange leaves on a single baking sheet and roast in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes (watch carefully during the last few minutes as to make sure the edges don't char)
-Remove from oven and place on a cooling rack

Notes: Delicious! Next time I will try to use a little less oil and instead of using garlic salt I will use fresh pressed garlic and sea salt!


Tosca also included another easy kale recipe for those kale loves (me, me!)

1 bunch kale
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 Tbsp oregano

-Rinse kale well in cold water to remove dirt, drain well and chop coarsely, removing tough stems
-Heat olive oil in a large skillet, add chopped kale and saute until wilted
-Season with salt, pepper and oregano and serve hot

I haven't tried this, but I know I would love!
