Whether you are already a kale fanatic and just looking for a fun new way to get your daily dose of greens (I mean green smoothies are always a good idea but sometimes you want to switch it up!) or you are buying kale for your first time unsure if you are going to like it, kale chips are a great new option to try! I was thrilled with how crispy they really did get, and you can top them with any flavors you like! So even if you are skeptical I ask that you just give it a shot before buying another bag of deep fried potato chips. I think you will be glad you did!
The Perfect Chip
This recipe is relatively straightforward and easy to follow. However I always like mentioning a few things about my recipes to help ensure that you get the best outcome possible the first time! So here are my tips for the perfect kale chip:
- Don’t overload your baking pan – only use enough kale to make one thin layer of leaves – this way every chip gets thoroughly baked (step 2 below will also help you remember this).
- Don’t overcook – you can definitely play with the cook time depending on how crispy you want your chips, but if you let it go too long you will be left with a pile of burnt greens!
- Top with YOUR favorite spices – I think the options I give here are the bomb dot com, that is why I suggest them! But if you have a certain spice or flavoring that you are obsessed with, use that! You will like these more if you stick true to your favorite flavors.
- Serve as soon as possible – these really do come out SO crispy – I was so happy! But they will lose their crisp over time, so try to serve them to your guests soon after making them whenever possible.
So are you ready for this life changing snack option?? Keep reading for the recipe!
