Kale chips! How am I just now making these?! So easy and tasty. I guess I just didn’t believe in them. Now I can’t believe I haven’t been making them for years.
Just toss a few leaves with EVOO, salt and pepper, then bake until they become crisp for a perfect little snack or side. You can easily add other spices to jazz things up. Think cajun seasoning, BBQ seasoning, etc.
Here, I simply added lemon zest, from a Rachael Ray Magazine recipe.
Lemon Kale Chips
- 1 bunch kale, stems removed and chopped into chip sizes
- Zest of 1 lemon
Preheat oven to 375. Toss kale pieces with oil, then place on parchment-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Bake, turning sheet once, until crispy – 8-10 minutes.
Once out of the oven, sprinkle with more seasonings and lemon zest.
They will look weird and kind of soggy and shriveled in places – but no! They are like shards of saltiness with a bitter-green undertone. And the chips literally dissolve on your tongue like a piece of rice paper.
Even for the kale haters, enjoy, friends! xoxo
