I’ve been waiting all season for this Lacinato Kale aka Dinosaur Kale so i could include my recipe for:
KALE CHIPS- A Healthy Snack
Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Wash the leaves of kale and pat dry with a paper towel (you can use a salad spinner too), then spread the leaves on a clean kitchen towel for a few hours. One of the most important details about cooking kale chips that must not be over looked is the drying of the leaf after they are cleaned- they will not be crispy if they have a lot of moisture left on them.
Once you are certain you have them completely dry, remove the stem of the kale leaf and tear the kale into larger-than-bite-size pieces (because they shrink and shrivel in the oven).
Then put the kale in a bowl and drizzle with Extra-Virgin Olive Oil and massage the kale with your hands to make sure each piece is completely coated.
One by one spread the kale in a single layer on the baking sheet, paying close attention to make sure the kale pieces don’t touch one another- for maximum crispness.
Lightly sprinkle the kale with Sea Salt or an other seasonings you wish to use… Garlic salt, Smoked paprika, Parmesan cheese, Sesame seeds etc.
Bake until the edges are lightly browned, usually 10-15 minutes but no more than 20 minutes total.
Transfer the kale to a sheet of parchment paper to cool to room temperature.
