How to create these Crispy Kale Chips !
If you’re after a crunchy, salty snack with a delicious, rich flavor, well, keep calm and kale on. how to make them. It’s so easy and you will be making them in no time.
Remove stem. Remove the thick stem. It’s very chewy and you do not want to sit and chew for a long time.
Dry. It’s essential that the leaves are dry, or else the water will prevent them from getting crisp when you cook them in the oven. And you want them crisp.
Massage with oil. After stem removal, put the leaves in a bowl and massage/toss them with some oil, but do not overdo it. You only need very little oil, don’t put too much, or the chips will get soggy. Any fine neutral oil will be good here.
Seasonings. Adding the seasonings before baking after the massaging, rather than afterwards makes the seasoning stick better. I’m using salt flakes and cayenne but many other spices will be good if you like. Garlic powder, curry, smoked paprika.
