I'm so late to this party. I made Kale Chips for the first time last night. I did a quick Google search to find a recipe, and they all sounded pretty much the same. 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes. EVOO. Salt and Pepper. When I pulled them out of the oven I was confused. I ate one and was not impressed. So, this is what people are talking about? It's like I found a fall leaf on the ground and put it in my mouth.
Not in love. So last night I finished my snip fries, which were delicious, and started nomming on my zucchini sammie. Then when I went to put my dishes away I found myself staring at the kale chips on my stove. Then I ate one. And another. And another. Okay, I really didn't like them at first. Honest. But I'm a sucker for salty snacks, I really am. Crunch and salt is my thing. So apparently now I like Kale Chips.
How to make Kale Chips taste less like kale: add other stronger flavors. When I made my Kale Chips tonight, I added the strongest spice I could find in my cupboard. Curry Powder.
Spicy Kale Chips
Curry Powder - Kind of a lot
Garlic Powder - Not a lot
Roast dried kale leaves at 400 degrees for 10 minutes.
