Kale Chips are a Delight!

Last year A shared some kale chips with me that she had made at a place where she was volunteering.  I loved them.  I tried to make them and turned out solid black ash with some salt, garlic and onion on them.

This year I found some kale chips at Morning Glory in Brunswick, Maine.  They were $6.99 for a small box!  I am sure they were delicious but I did not have the money for them.

SO....I made more and this time they worked.

What you need:

Fresh kale ( I used curly kale)
Granulated garlic
Granulated onion
Kosher salt
Coarsely ground black pepper
Olive oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Oil a baking sheet, or put a piece of parchment paper on the baking sheet.  Wash kale and pat dry.  Pull pieces off the stem (about 2 to 4 inches square-ish) and place in a large plastic bag. 

Drizzle about 1 Tablespoon of olive oil over kale pieces.  Close bag and shake until all sides of kale are coated with oil.  Mix together garlic, onion, pepper, and some more than one-half teaspoon of salt or it will be way too salty.  Open bag and sprinkle mixed flavoring over the top them close bag and shake again until kale is well coated. 

Kale Chips...going fast!

By now the oven will be ready.  Spread kale pieces onto baking sheet in a single layer and bake for 10 minutes...NO MORE.  When your oven timer goes off, pull out the baking sheet.  You can let the kale sit a moment but it is really ready to eat immediately.  Enjoy these chips!  Way better than potato chips....

It seems to me that the Morning Glory kale chips had a peanut butter coating.  That might be interesting to try.  It did look rather sludgy but if you like peanut butter, or maybe almond or cashew might be worth trying it.
