Taking Kale to New Heights with Casa Garlic Kale Chips

See also

When you walk through the aisles of your local grocery store and you ventures into the so-called "snack-food" area, you will see snuggled within the potato and corn chips items which call themselves "vegetable chips." This is rather laughable, especially when you look at the ingredients. Yes, they are made from vegetables but that is where the logic of the product ends.

One of the more popular types of vegetable chips today are kale chips. When you make these at home they can be quite good, as long as you use organic kale and don't slop them with cheap oil and salt which last saw freshness about the same time Jesus had his last supper.

At Casa de Cuisine, we have decided to take kale chips and make them something special. In doing this we also added a more vibrant flavor and made them healthier. It is just something we like to do with food. We also serve our kale chips differently. We use whole kale leaves (minus the stem) instead of the usual cut-up pieces of kale.

Ingredients needed to make Casa Garlic Kale Chips:

  • 1 bunch kale, leaves only (remove and discard the stems - or save for stock)
  • 1 Tbs. Greek olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt

Steps:

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil.
  2. Place the whole kale leaves in a large bowl.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the Greek olive oil, garlic and salt.
  4. Pour the oil mixture over the kale and toss to coat.
  5. Place the kale leaves onto the prepared baking sheet.
  6. Place into the oven and bake 10 minutes per side.
