Eat your greens...chip styles
Chips...mmmm, so good and so bad. I have this friend, whom will remain nameless, that use to say how bad chips are for you. I don't think she was talking about these kind :P
I have seen kale chip recipes all over the web, in stores, books..etc. I had yet to try to make them. I always thought I would need a dehydrator to make them ( I really want one).
I bought a HUGE bunch of it this week with the thought that I was going to try and make them in the oven...I have heard through the grape vine that you can do this. This is my first attempt, and I am pleased with the results.
I have tried deep fried spinach before, I use to have to make it for a garnish back in my restaurant days. It has a similar crispiness to it. Baked kale has an almost seaweed flavor. I was really surprised, and like the idea that you are not steaming the nutrients out.
Basically I washed the kale, drizzled it in olive oil sprinkled with sea salt and nutritional yeast and baked in an oven on a cookie sheet at 350 for 10 minutes. Super simple and super tasty.
I was inspired by selfish vegan. Check out the site. I really like it.
