Another successful recipe swap week! Brianna from Oishii submitted a recipe for baked kale chips that I was assigned. I was thrilled because I’ve been meaning to try it, and actually was in Whole Foods a few weeks ago looking to buy kale, but they were out.
I was pretty surprised by that, but what shocked me even more was that Frank was not only looking forward to trying them…he actually enjoyed them! I thought for sure he wouldn’t be a fan. Bella, on the other hand…not so much 🙂
I know, the picture doesn’t look like much of anything. It actually just looks like a raw piece of kale. The ends didn’t brown much, like Brianna said they might, but it still crisped up nicely and had a good texture.
This is a delicious and healthy item that can easily help curb a crunchy or salty craving. I served it with dinner but it definitely works as a snack, too. Thanks, Brianna!
Baked Kale Chips
slightly adapted from Oishii
1 bunch kale, washed and broken apart with stems removed
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons sea salt
Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Put all ingredients in a bowl and mix together, then place on a baking sheet.
Bake for approximately 30 minutes. Midway through, gently toss kale. Toward the end, keep a close eye on it to be sure it doesn’t overcook.
