I got this recipe from my boss. He came into the office with a Pyrex full of kale chips, and I was hooked. I hounded him for weeks for his wife’s recipe and finally got it! It’s a simple recipe and kale is all-the-rage lately as a super food, so it’s extra special eating it!
- 1 Bunch of kale
- 2-3 Tablespoons olive oil
- 2 Tablespoons Balsamic vinegar
- Sea salt
Start by washing and drying the fresh kale. Break kale into bite sized pieces (i.e. remove from the tough stems). I used scissors to cut around the stems and into bite sized pieces.
Then toss with a little olive oil and anything else fun (I used sea salt, and on half balsamic vinegar) until they turn bright green.
Spread in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment or wax paper. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 11-12 minutes! Checking to see if it is crisp.
This is the tricky part. You don’t want to burn it, but if not left long enough, it isn’t crisp. If not ready, then toss and leave in for 2 minutes more. Cook till done. I love the way the balsamic caramelized on the kale! It looked fabulous and tasted even better!
After editing this post, I went out to get more kale. It’s addictive. But eating a bunch of kale chips is way less guilt inducing than eating other things. Enjoy!! Yum!
