Everyone loves potato chips, but potato chips are not good for our waistlines. Kale chips are a great alternative, and can be made at home in just a few minutes. Curly kale is the only kale that was recommended by Vegkitchen. Another tip is to make sure you let the kale dry all the way before baking. If you don’t, the kale chip might turn out soggy, and just gross.
ten to twelve curly kale leaves
Salt, kosher salt is best
Coconut oil one to two teaspoon is plenty
First, wash and completely dry the kale. THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT STEP. Once dry, preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Some recipes call for temperatures as low as 250 degrees for kale chips, however, 375 degrees is the temperature recommended by most cooks.
Place the kale in a large bowl with coconut oil. Evenly coat the kale with the oil. Add salt and garlic salt to the kale leaves. Now, place the kale on the baking sheet in one layer, carefully not overlapping any leaves.
Bake for about 10 minutes at 375 degrees. When taking the kale chips out of the oven, they will be hot, so handle with care. Each serving is a mere 50 calories. The best part of kale chips is, your children will love them. They are crunchy and salty. They are the ideal late night snack. Try the recipe, you will love it.
