Cooking with Avitable: Kale Chips

I want to say thanks to my good friend Alyssa. She writes an awesome blog that goes through her attempts to cook healthy, good tasting food for her family, and if it wasn’t for her encouragement, I’d never have tried to make these kale chips.

I’d recommend visiting her blog here, or if you’re looking just for the post on kale chips, you can find it here.

As I mentioned in the video, the chips were really delicious. They had a slight nutty taste, a great crunch, and a good flavor. Next time, I’d use a little less olive oil and a little less salt, but I know I’ll definitely be making them again.

  1. I have no idea if I can get Kale here but I will check. Thanks for the link to someone who doesn’t live on hotdogs.

    Also, has anyone ever told you that you have nice hands? That’s not a come on though, twit. Ha.

  2. Perfect! I’ve just started trying to eat better and am looking for ways to make vegetables more interesting, coz they’re not my favorites. Thank you for this – I’ll give them a shot.

  3. Thanks for the vid! I don’t think we can get Kale here in the great white north without bribing someone.

    I SO want to try them though.

    Have you ever heard of pampered chef? They have these baking stones that ROCK! I do up roasted vegetables with olive oil, salt and various herbs in the oven. They’re like healthy candy. There is a big difference between using a sheet pan and a cooking stone. AND, you don’t have to wash them, just rinse and scrape under hot water.

    Next time, try Cauliflower, broken up into bite sized pieces, mix with olive oil, salt and curry powder. Bake and pretend it’s popcorn!

  4. I love kale chips. We’re usually to lazy to make them though, since it involves buying and cutting up kale. When did this newfangled bagged kale come out? That makes life a lot easier.

    I guess you rinsed and shook off each piece of kale? What we do to save time is rip and throw into a salad spinner. Use the spinner basket as a colander and rinse everything at once and then spin dry before putting on an oven tray.

  5. You should read the bag to be sure, but usually the bagged greens are prewashed. And sea salt usually makes things salty enough while using less than the normal amount. Get fine rather than coarse, pour some in your palm and then sprinkle it on. It’ll come out more evenly.

    I’m going to have to try this. Lean meat hamburgers on whole grain buns with kale chips on the side. Cool!

  6. Do you take bites the same size that a toddler would take? It looked like the pieces were pretty bite sized before you ripped them to shreds.

    Either way, I doubt I’ll ever make these because um, ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.
