Kale chips are where it’s at!
Kale has been everywhere lately, and it’s no wonder why! One of the most popular superfoods, kale is jam-packed with beneficial nutrients, vitamins A, C & K, calcium, potassium, manganese and more. It’s also rich in health-supportive antioxidants, and who doesn’t love that?
With more and more of us becoming health conscious, making the switch from popping open a bag of potato chips to popping crunchy pieces of kale in and out of the oven is a no-brainer. Kale chips are delicious, sure, but they are also super easy to make and customize to your family’s taste!
After plenty of trial and error kale chip endeavors (there are a ton of recipes out there!), we’re sharing with you our secret to the perfect chips… tweak-able to fit your preference!
- Preheat your oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Clean and dry your kale bunches thoroughly. Cut off the chunky stalks on the bottom and discard. Rip apart the kale leaves into 3-4” pieces. Remember, the chips will shrink as they bake so you don’t want them to be too small!
- Rub each piece with oil and seasoning and place in one layer on the baking sheet. Pop in the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes, or when the edges of the chips are nice and crispy and starting to brown. Keep an eye on them as they can burn easily!
- Remove and let cool before serving. Enjoy!
- Italian inspired? Add shredded parmesan cheese and garlic powder!
- Feeling spicy? Add equal amounts of chili powder, cumin, onion powder & garlic powder!
- Classic BBQ? Add paprika, black pepper, cayenne pepper, garlic powder & onion powder!
- Salt & vinegar? Add Piping Rock's apple cider vinegar in equal parts to your coconut oil!
- Sweet & sour? Add a splash of lemon juice and finish with a light zest from the peel!
These suckers are so good we know you’ll be making extra! Simply put the extra chips (if there are any!) in a container or paper bag and keep them in the cupboard where your chips used to be—they should last for a couple days.
