I have been cooking with kale for along time. One of my favorite ways to use kale has been in soup. One of our favorite winter soups is Pork, Bean and Kale Soup. I have also used kale in a salad. Not all people are fans of kale salad but we enjoy it. Another way to cook with kale is making baked kale chips.
Kale Chips have been around for a while but I never tried them until recently. They are so delicious! I am definitely going to try them again, soon. They are very easy to make and in just a short amount of time you can have a bowl of kale chips to munch on. And they are much healthier for you than potato chips! I usually grow kale in my garden each year and often have an abundance. I have frozen the excess in the past but cooking with kale and making kale chips is a real winner! Next time you have a craving for potato chips try cooking with kale and making kale chips!
It’s very easy and takes no time at all. Take one bunch of curly kale.
Tear the leaves off the thick stems into bite size pieces. Set the stems aside for your compost or for your chickens.
Soak the leaves in a bowl of water to clean and then dry off in a salad spinner.
Spread the leaves out on cookie sheets. Spray with some oil (I used spray Pam). Sprinkle with salt or any seasoning of your choice, we have a favorite seasoning called “Nantucket Secret Spice” which I used.
Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes, until the edges are brown and the kale is crisp when moved in the pan. Keep an eye on the kale so it does’t burn.
Enjoy‼ My husband even said “Hey these are GOOD!”
So the next time you have an abundance of kale on hand trying making these baked kale chips, they might just become a family staple!
