Kale chips…who knew?!

Jody Adams on Top Chef Masters baked kale in the oven to make it crispy. Surprising! considering kale normally needs to be boiled and sauteed into submission. So today I attempted kale chips…I gave them a light olive oil and salt dressing and put them in a 400 degree Fahrenheit oven on a baking sheet. After a few minutes, they were shiny and limp…few more minutes, they were starting to show brown patches. At this point I picked some up and found mixed textures of crispy and soft. The taste of salty, crunchy kale was chip like in an imperfect way. I put them back in the oven and after a few more minutes, they turned completely brown and tasted like ash…try not to let them get to this point.

In sum, kale chips are tasty and nutritious but temperamental while cooking so be vigilant!
