Chris Abraham’s Adventure in Cooking: Organic Kale Crisps! (Who Would Have Thunk It?)

This is a cooking post from Chris Abraham’s blog— and he knows I am featuring it because it’s an unusual way of cooking kale and would be the “wow” factor for your Memorial Day celebration if you are solo or a a group of people.


Kale Chips

Thanks to a note from @sugarbakingblog on Twitter that pointed me to the Sugar Baking Blog proper, I was led to this lovely recipe that I will indulge this weekend for certain!

Organic Kale Crispy Chips …Oven Baked
Organic Kale Chips, so easy to make. Kale, when baked becomes a delicious crispy chip.

Ingredients

■4 brunches of Organic Kale
■2 tablespoons Extra virgin olive oil for drizzling
■Any kind of salt to your liking ( I used HimalayanPink salt )
■Kosher or sea salt is also flavorful
Directions
Preheat the oven at 250 degrees F. Remove the stems from the Kale leaves and cut away from the rib.Discard stem and other pieces.

Rinse the kale leaves and pat dry. If you have a salad spinner, spin the kale several times and pat dry. It is important that the leaves are dry to get a crispy chip.

Use parchment paper or foil and cover a baking sheet. ( cookie sheet )
Place the kale leaves in a large bowl making sure all the leaves are dried. Drizzle extra virgin olive oil on the kale and toss to coat completely using tongs. Do not over use Olive oil or the Kale chips will be oily.

Place the Kale on a baking sheet loosely.

Bake for 15-20 minutes. Check to see if the Kale leaves are crispy, do not let the Kale get over baked or discolored, turn the Kale over using tongs. Try to keep the leaves a green color. The Kale will be done when the ends are crispy to the touch and the kale will feel dried. Add the salt once the Kale is baked and removed from the oven. Salt can be added before baking or after.

Remove from the oven and sprinkle your favorite spices or salt.

Tip #1 courtesy of Rose Kemps– do not salt before baking.
Tip # 2 courtesy of Rose Kemps– works really well with eggs (fried, poached– whatever way you want them)
Tip #3 courtesy of Rose Kemps -the kale cooks down a lot so cook a lot more than you think and make sure that you don’t OVER invite people otherwise you might be making a run to the market to buy more kale and cooking on Memorial Day!!

Thank you to Chris Abraham for this amazing recipe and doing al lthe work.
