If you are a regular reader of blogs, you’ve probably heard of Kale Chips by now. Hesitant to commit to an entire bag of kale, I’ve put off making them . . . I’m fickle like that. I can’t commit. I’m not a gambler. I like to play it safe and eat roasted vegetables and bowls of caramelized onions like it’s my job.
But the kale was on sale . . .
(didn’t even mean to rhyme that, but I secretly like it!)
. . . so I committed. I bought the whole giant bag of kale.
It kinda freaked me out.
I may have had a (mild) panic attack.
But I did it.
Determined not to screw this up, I followed Kath’s recipe because Kath is like, a blog-Goddess and knows all things kale. I trust Kath when it comes to Kale. Kath for Kale President. Or something.
So, my kale went into a bowl . . .
Where I sprayed it liberally with cooking spray, and seasoned it with a little Garlic Gold and S&P.
Mix it up!
And spread it out in an even layer on a sprayed cookie sheet.
Into a 375* oven for 15 minutes . . . here is where I fail. My oven tends to run a little on the hot side and in my exhausted stupor, I sort of forgot about that.
After 12 minutes in the oven, it smelled done.
It wasn’t totally burnt, but I could tell it didn’t turn out like it was supposed to. Still crunchy and salty, but a tiny bit singed.
But I will not give up!
(I cannot give up . . . I have an enormous bag of kale in my fridge.)
It was tasty with a repeat of Saturday’s Panini, though!
And this little guy looked a little better than the rest! Super crispy (but not burned)!
I wouldn’t call it a culinary success, but I will prevail! Kale Chips—Round 2—will be happening soon!
In the meantime, what else can I do with all this kale???
