Crispy Baby Kale Chips from What The Fork Food Blog

I have a confession. I don’t love kale.  It’s not that I hate it, it just isn’t something i go out of my way to make. I’ve had some really good kale salad but some really bad sausage kale soup and kale chips. I think that’s why I’m kind of ehhh about it.

Kale just isn’t something that makes it into my grocery cart. I’m sure by now you’re wondering why I even made baby kale chips then. I just happened to see this baby kale when I was at the store, one that I don’t usually shop at. The baby kale was next to some salad mixes I was getting so I thought hmmm… Baby kale… Prove me wrong, baby kale. Prove me wrong.

Baby Kale Chips from What The Fork Food BlogAnd prove me wrong it did. These crispy baby kale chips just as I had hoped they would be. Crispy and delicious. I find that regular ol’ kale gets a little bitter when it cooks, which didn’t happen with the baby kale. The end result was exactly what I wanted. A crispy, salty healthy snack that’s super easy to make. No more bitter kale chips here! I’ll be using baby kale from now on.

If you’ve been on the fence about kale like me, try the baby kale! It’s so tender and mild flavored. It’s really perfect for people like me who are not so sure about kale but want to incorporate it into their diets. I’m sure you’ll be pleasantly surprised like I was.

Ingredients

  • 1 4.5oz package of baby kale

Instructions

Notes

Do not bake longer than the 10 minutes as the kale will burn easily. It will continue to crisp up when you take it out of the oven.

Do I arrange the kale leaves in any particular way on the baking sheet?

They would be great for salad! I actually enjoyed snacking on it raw - shocking! Baby kale would probably be great in smoothies too :)

I am just like you - I don't really care for kale but I keep trying and trying. I can eat it in soups but I find it bitter otherwise. I will definitely try this recipe because the health benefits of kale are amazing. Pinning - thanks for sharing!
