Today is a little bit of good kitchen fun, I'm sharing my recipe for perfect kale chips. The other veggies are part of my dehydration experiment which I'll be posting the results of soon.
Garlic Kale Chips
You will need-
1 head of kale
1 tbsp of Macadamia Nut Oil
1/2 tsp of sea salt
1/4 tsp of garlic powder or your favorite garlic seasoning
De-stem the kale and shred into small roughly 1"x1" pieces. Add your oil, salt and garlic then mix very thoroughly, I mean really make sure every leaf is coated.
A side note most kale chip recipes call for a full tsp of salt and use olive oil, I've found olive oil and that much salt a little too over powering. Macadamia Nut Oil however, is not only subtle but has a light butter taste as well. You'll also note I used a garlic and wine seasoning from the Melting Pot, it's really really good with kale, and excellent on pasta too, but plain garlic powder is delicious as well.
Scatter half of your kale evenly over a cookie sheet, make sure it's thinly spread out or it will cook unevenly. Pop it in the oven for 10-13 minutes, it's done when the edges are brown but not burnt.
It should look like this, grab the other half of your kale and repeat the baking process. You should get 4-6 cups of the best kale chips ever. Try not to eat them all in one sitting.
