Baked Kale Chips

Day 19 BM #51 - 

Kale leaves have played peek a boo with me for many years now. These leaves somehow never appear at home :) But I was determined to try out these chips for the marathon when one of my friends suggested that I should try baking Kale.

The first time I baked these I mistakenly added a generous dosage of salt and the chips turned out way too salty for our taste. So I just powdered them added a little bit of red chilli powder and mixed it in rice and served it to my older one and she was happy. 

I felt these leaves were very forgiving in the spices they can attach to (except salt :-)). Just salt and pepper would be a great idea too.

But the second time around is a different success story altogether!!

Ingredients - 

Kale, roughly chopped 3-4 cups
Olive Oil 1 Tbsp
Onion Powder as needed
Garlic Powder as needed
Parmesan Cheese [The powdered variety] as needed
*Salt a generous pinch

Baked Kale Chips

Method Of Preparation -

Wash the kale, and carefully wipe down the leaves so there is as little moisture as possible. [Else they will just steam and not crisp up].

Spray the olive oil all over the leaves and sprinkle the rest of the spices and toss them so the spices are evenly spread around.

Preheat the oven to 350 °F. Prepare a baking tray with parchment paper.

Arrange all the leaves in a single layer on the baking tray.

Bake them for 10 min, remove and turn the tray the other way and bake for another 10-12 minutes.

Check if they are crisp. I left them in the oven after I powered off the oven for about 10-15 minutes.

They turned out ultra crispy. Perfect to snack on!
