Baked Kale Chips Recipe

Skip Greasy Potato Chips For This (Addictive) Healthy Recipe Instead

My first experience with kale chips was at Blue Hill New York — a highly respected farm-to-table restaurant in New York. I was in heaven when I tried the first bite: light, crispy, and nutty, with the perfect amount of salt to complement the subtle taste of kale. The chips were a goner in less than a minute. Try making them for yourself and you'll see what I mean. Besides being a great alternative to potato chips, kale chips make a great party snack or mid-afternoon treat. Light and not weighed down in grease, this is a recipe packed with vitamins and minerals.

SFCA i have tried to re-create a similar experience with spinach and it didn't come out nearly as good as using the kale. the spinach just didn't hold up as well. personally, i love the green curly kale for these chips, but the dinosaur kale is a close second. something about the curly kale when baked just melts in your mouth. Oh samham, raw, dehydrated kale chips are also delicious but in order for all the live enzymes to be preserved the temperature needs to be kept under 118. hope you'll still give these a whirl though!

I thought they were going to be gross but I was determined to try them anyway and I'm glad I did. They are tasty and addicting and are just as much fun to eat as potato chips - I was pleasantly surprised!

I had a "Why Didn't I Think of That" Moment when I read about this couple selling their Kale Chips in NY Magazine See "The Way the Kate Chip Crumbles"

Though I am seriously skeptical, I'm going to try this recipe b/c of all the rave reviews. I love chips, and am always looking for healthy replacements. Plus I've been looking to try kale, so this sounds perfect. Thanks!
