This an incredible and healthy snack you can prepare any time, but it has it's proper way to cook. We thought the recipe of Nom Nom Paleo was perfect.
To make kale chips, however, there are a few key points to keep in mind:
Here’s what you need to make your own chips:
Here’s what to do:
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Then, remove the leaves from the stems and wash the leaves well in a few changes of water. (The stuff I buy from the farmer’s market is often dirty. I don’t know about you, but I find that chips taste better sans dirt.)
Then, in small batches, spin the leaves dry in a salad spinner.
Toss the dry leaves with avocado oil and use your hands to distribute the oil evenly.
Then, line a baking sheet with parchment paper and lay some of the leaves on top in a single layer.
Make sure the leaves are all flat and not folded over or they won’t crisp properly.
Pop the tray in the oven, and…
…after just 12 minutes, the chips’ll be done! (Set your timer and keep an eye on the kale, ‘cause if the chips burns, they’ll be bitter – and so will you.)
Once the kale’s out of the oven, season the chips with some fleur de sel or your favorite seasoning salt.
Eat 'em up!
