Kale Chips (Grünkohl Chips)
A friend came over last weekend and made these for us. Luckily she left some kale behind so we could make our own, because we were addicted!
Kale chips are super easy, the toughest part is finding kale in season (which luckily is now).
All you need is:
Kale, washed and ripped into small/medium pieces
Salt (either table salt or thicker salt (like pretzel salt)
Preheat the oven to as high, or as almost high, as it goes. We cooked ours at 230 C or so (450 F).
Wash and dry the kale and rip (or cut) it into smaller pieces.
Place the kale in an oven safe dish with sides. We used a glass dish.
Drizzle a small amount of olive oil over the kale (we made a lot of kale and used less than a tablespoon). Less is more in this situation because you do not want the kale to be soggy and greasy.
Use your hands to work in the olive oil so every piece is covered.
Sprinkle with salt and stick it in the oven (toward the top). After about 5 minutes flip the kale and let the other side cook. In about 10 minutes it should be crispy (a little brown) and delicious. A healthy type of chip!
