But not everyone likes it. I’m one of those–kale by itself is bitter and the stems are fibrous–when someone says “kale salad” I shudder. But put it in a vegetable soup, juice it or make chips? I’m all over it.
Kale chips are such a great snack–healthy, with a satisfying crunch and maybe even a teensy bit of salt for your craving.
I’ve had wins and I’ve had epic kale chip fails, and I think I know the secret to perfect kale chips:
- Make sure the kale is completely dry before you bake the pieces. Completely.
- Remove the bitter and fibrous stalks. Just rip the leaves off them.
- Do not pile chips on top of each other on the baking pan.
Check them after five minutes.
