My friend Lee asked if I had tried to make kale chips, a recipe which has been featured on popular food blogs such as KERF, as well as the Today Show. I did make these last year one time but wasn’t totally impressed. With Lee’s encouragement, I decided to give the recipe another try. The process is simple enough; you place pieces of torn kale on a baking sheet, coat them with cooking spray or oil and some salt, and then bake them in the oven at a high temperature until crispy. Ketchup is optional, but highly recommended.
I admit I liked them enough to eat the whole batch over the holiday weekend, and yet I don’t think they’ll make it into my usual rotation. They are good, but there are a lot of great recipes which use kale that I like better, including this salad and this sweet and savory kale dish. But if this recipe will bring kale into your house for the first time, go for it!
