Have You Tried Kale Chips?
Now I know what you are thinking, kale chips? No thanks I stick to potato chips. But even if vegetables taste bitter to you, like they do for me you have got to give kale chips a try at least once. I don’t notice the bitter flavor at all in this recipe and they are really easy to make too.
A while back I was able to purchase 4 bunches of Kale for just a $1. I know a dollar that is a crazy good deal. Having so much cheap kale on hand gave me a good reason to try a recipe I had been wanted to try Kale Chips. I had seen recipes for kale chips but I wasn’t sure we would like them. Kale can be a little bitter and I can already taste the bitterness in beans, peas and other vegetables so I thought kale without being cooked much would be the same.
But with the abundance of kale I had purchased I thought why not give it a try and see if we like them. If the recipe was an utter failure I wouldn’t be out much. The recipe I used is really easy to prepare. Once the kale chips were done everyone in our family except for my son gave them a try and really liked them a lot.
This recipe uses no oil so it is just kale and seasoning how much easier can you get than that? So if you are looking for a healthy alternative to regular potato chips you need to give these a try.
1 bunch or bag of kale, torn into pieces and woody stem part removed
1t garlic powder
1 t curry powder
1 t salt
1/4 t pepper
- Wash the kale and tear into pieces leaving the woody stem behind.
- Place the washed kale on a cookie sheet
- Sprinkle with the curry powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper. (you can really use any spice combination you like but this is just what I used)
- Bake in the oven at 250 degrees for about 30-45 minutes or until the kale is crisp.
- Then snack away.
The first batch I made only lasted a few hours. So you may want to make two batches if your family really likes them. You can also dry these chips in a food dehydrator but the oven works just as well.
