Salt and Vinegar Kale Chips

Salt and Vinegar Kale Chips

Kale – a superfood! Why not give this a try?! Maybe you’re like me and have given kale chips a try and burnt them the first time…oops! It’s ok, just try again! Experimenting with food is so fun, challenging and most often, very rewarding. Making kale chips can be a delicate process to get them at the right crispiness, but I assure you, it can be done.

So here you have a classic potato chip flavor baked right into this great, green superfood…a much healthier alternative! Follow along below and achieve kale chip success!

Ingredients:

  • 1 bunch of kale
  • Olive oil (eyeballed approximately 1 tbsp)
  • Vinegar, I used distilled white vinegar (eyeballed approximately 2 tbsp)
  • Salt (and Pepper, too)

What you do:

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Line baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  • Pick kale off of stem and wash with cold water.
  • Shake excess water off leaves the best you can.
  • Pull kale into desire size. I made them into about the size of a deck of cards. (I like big chips!)
  • Place into large bowl.
  • Mix together olive oil, vinegar and about 1 tsp salt in a small bowl.
  • Drizzle mixture over kale pieces and massage into leaves for a couple minutes to coat leaves evenly.
  • Place leaves on foil-lined baking sheet.
    • 1 bunch of kale was too much for 1 round of cooking for my sheet. I had to do a few rounds.
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Place in preheated oven for 6-8 minutes.
  • Turn oven on high broil. Broil leaves for 30-60 seconds.
  • Take out of oven and enjoy!
