How To Make Kale Chips

This is a recipe I never that I’d be sharing – Kale Chips. Nothing intrigues me about kale. Absolutely nothing.

Kale Chips are so easy to make, and a great snack to munch on without the guilt. Easily one of my new favorite snacks on the go!

Kale is something that I never cared to eat. The texture, flavor and all around appearance of it is just so unappealing. Don’t ask me why I have no concrete reasoning for it.

BUT, I’ve been getting Farm Fresh To You Shipments, and on occasion I’ll get kale sent to me. Rather than tossing straight into compost and feeling guilty I thought I’d try out kale chips.

And I have to be honest – I’m a huge fan! I added a little salt, cumin and red pepper flakes, to add a little heat. Kale chips have a pumpkin seed flavor that I absolutely love.

I found myself constantly grabbing kale chips one after another. So to say I’m a fan is a little shocking, but a pleasant surprise!

Making kale chips is super easy. The trick is low heat in the oven, keeping your kale evenly coated with oil to remove as much moisture as possible. Be sure pat your kale dry with a paper towel as well to remove any moisture before adding oil.

And the flavor combos for kale chips are limitless. Try barbecue seasoning, maybe some italian seasoning, or even some fajita seasoning to spice things up!
