Kale chips

Kale seasoned
Originally uploaded by EatingVideo
Many of the bloggers on eatingrichmond, have posted their versions of Kale chips or dehydrated kale. EatingBirdFood, CaramelizedOpinions are just a couple of examples. I had fried some kale to a crispy finish in another dish, but decided to bake it for this one. The Kale was accompanied by thinly sliced country pork ribs seasoned and thinly cut, cooked a la plancha or on a hot dry skillet.

I washed the Kale and cut out the main stem or rib.

I dressed it with olive oil and seasoned salt (lowry's) and layered it on a rack over a tray. I then placed it in the preheated convection oven at 325 deg F. for 12 minutes. They shrink and get brown on the edges.

they end up very crispy and tasty, this is how we served it

Kale chips done

great side dish, or snack as many other people serve it. It is easy and quick and certainly can be seasoned a million ways.

Thanks for the comments, @Tim Vidra, it's so easy and remarkably flavorfull, should be good with any number of flavored salts (i've got some bacon salt, which my daughter told me I should have put on it)

@Erin, yes I've got plenty more!

@Mary, you have a beatiful website, great pictures and recipes, I will be checking out your site as well. Thanks for the visit.

Creo que nunca he comido kale, a menos que se conozca con otro nombre acá... cual es su sabor?

El nombre es col rizada, tiene un sabor un poco amargo particularmente cuando crudo. Ya cocida es mas dulce.
