Have you ever made kale chips? If you have not you are in for a big surprise. They are crunchy, tasty and just really melt in your mouth with exploding flavor.
I am obsessed with Trader Joe’s Kale Chips. Oh my goodness – they are good. But at $3.99 a bag, I can’t love them too much or my little wallet will pay big time. Ummm – here is a blog post written about them.
That is why you can and should make these scrumptious chips at home. They are so easy to make and taste very very good. You can make them have any flavor you like – cheesy, curry seasoned, salty, a burst of garlic – whatever you like.
You will need: 2 cups of kale (I used baby kale leaves), a pinch of salt, 2 tbsp. olive oil, a seasoning of your choice (for this batch I used a curry powder from Home Goods).
Dump your leaves in a big bowl and douse in oil. I used my hands to mix up the goodness. Yes, my hands did get a little messy but you want all the chips coated with the olive oil.
Next sprinkle in your savory seasoning and fold it in using a large fork. You want your leaves to get coated in the spices as well. That way they will have loads more flavor.
Line a cookie tray with foil and dump your leaves on the tray. I sprinkled the leaves with salt (just a little bit). Set the oven temperature to 400 degrees. You want it nice and toasty in there.
Place your leaves in for about 20 minutes or maybe less. And, enjoy your yummy little crunchy snack. These are low-fat and gluten free. Much guilt free on these babies.
