Kale Crisps


I know many of us call this recipe “Kale Chips” – but to me a “chip” is usually made of a root vegetable you can use for dipping into salsa or guacamole.  So, I’m naming my recipe  Kale Crisps.  I’ve started 2017 on a healthy kick, researching several recipes and ways to incorporate more whole foods in my diet.  Thanks to Cooks Illustrated (subscription based magazine and online site), I am enjoying my easy to make Kale Crisps.

Traditionally made in the oven, Cooks Illustrated researched and shared a recipe to make them in the microwave. Something I usually avoid – but found it to work really well.

Recipe is super easy….

1. Wash and trim off the stems of Lacinato Kale.  Cut leaves about 2″ long. (Curly Kale doesn’t come out as well nor does it taste as sweet as the Lacinato.)
2. Place in bowl, drizzle with olive oil and salt and mix well to coat
3. Place on plate lined with paper towel, arrange on flat layer and microwave for 3 minutes
4. Enjoy this crispy & delicious snack  – Kale Crisps

Store in airtight container for up to 1 week.
