I came across this recipe for kale chips, which sounded interesting:.

KALE CHIPS.

Makes 6 servings.

INGREDIENTS (Nutrition).

1 bunch kale.

1 tablespoon olive oil.

1 teaspoon seasoned salt.

DIRECTIONS.

Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a non insulated cookie sheet with parchment paper.

With a knife or kitchen shears carefully remove the leaves from the thick stems and tear into bite size pieces. Wash and thoroughly dry kale with a salad spinner. Drizzle kale with olive oil and sprinkle with seasoning salt.

Bake until the edges brown but are not burnt, 10 to 15 minutes.

I might try this recipe this week (along with the radish fries)...I'll let you all know how it turns out!.

I also am thinking some sort of an oven fry could be made with turnips??.

I'll be experimenting with all sorts of vegetables I don't normally eat this week!..

Comment #1

Kale chips are great. I prefer them "raw" dehydrated instead of baked. Superb!..

Comment #2

I have never tried Kale chips but I am going to try them tomorrow. What are radish fries? I have a huge bunch of radishes begging for attention! Thanks for the ideas!..

Comment #3

You can cut the radishes real thin, drizzle with olive oil and bake like real potato fries, or I have read that you can boil them whole, like baby red potatoes and spritz with ICBINB spray and they supposedly taste like potatoes and lose their peppery taste..

Best,.

I have been sooo wanting to try these! I did an experiment once to see if spinach would work, but it just shriveled up and disappeared LOL.....

Comment #5

YEAH !!! thank you for posting.... cannot wait to try these ideas.......

Comment #6

I have made these before and love them. They are surprisingly crunchy. My nephews refuse to eat most vegetables, but they devour these. I typically use pam spray instead of oil and they come out just as good..

Ok ... I made the radish home fries.... 2 ways. I sliced them thin, sprinkled garlic and onion powder and drizzled olive oil and baked them in a counter top oven broiler thing 35 minutes at 375...they were FABULOUS!!! I then sliced some a little thicker and dropped them into a pan with hot olive oil on the stove for about 8 minutes...oh geez they were crispier and just as good. This is a good recipe but I think could be addictive they are that good!!! There is no bitter or hot taste very sweet more like a sweet potato than a white one. I am going to buy kale next time I go to the store and make some chips...will let you know!..

OK, I just HAVE to make these tonight! I'm thinking kale chips could be my late-night snack Love kale anyway, so this has to be good....

Sweeetchin, glad you liked the radishes too!.

Nephele, have you made the chips yet?.

I've also made oven-baked turnip fries, boiled and peeled them first, then sliced and tossed with Pam, garlic powder and paprika. They were great with lo-carb ketchup.....

Comment #9

I haven't tried the kale chips yet but I'm planning to pick some up this w/e at the grocery store. I had butternut squash fries tonight...I hope they are OP b/c I forgot to check They were good though!.

I'm glad to hear the radish chips were good b/c I'm getting some of those this w/e too!!.

Edit: Oh crud, turns out butternut squash is NOT OP! This is a good reminder to CHECK the approved foods list before you cook dinner..

Comment #10

Aw, too bad about the butternut squash! Yep, always good to check the list...

Sooooo.... I made the kale chips last night... the first batch was overcooked. You need to take them out while they're still a nice green, but crispy... I let them get dark green and they tasted... meh..

The second batch was much, much better! I put Kernel Seasons Nacho Cheese sprinkles on them and they were like papery-thin Doritos. (And just fyi, the texture is not at all like a chip, they're much lighter and more fragile.).

So overall, these were very easy to make, and taste great when you just want something crispy and salty while you get your veggies in. A good TV-munchie snack...

Comment #11

Ooohhh....doritos! I'm gonna make these on Sunday after my big shopping trip and I'll be sure not to overcook them..

Comment #12

Thanks for the tip because I did not like my first kale chips. I have another batch. I'll try them again..

Comment #13

I am making these now and love them - but how do you count them? By weight before cooking?..

Comment #14

I made kale chips last night. I had a bag of kale and went on allrecipes.com to find something different to do with them..

I tossed the kale with a little olive oil and chili powder. Spread on baking sheet and bake in 400 degree oven for 5 minutes. Remove and toss them around and then bake for another 5 minutes. They were delicious. So light and crispy..

They do shrivel, a lot. I had a jelly roll sheet pan full of kale and when it was done it looked so skimpy...

Comment #15

The radish home fries rock out loud. Also, the kale is good, but it shrinks ALOT!..

Comment #16

Kale chips are AWESOME... I use sea salt ... they are addictive.....

I wish I had a dehydrator... bet they are better that way....

Also I preheat my oven up to 400, then lower it to 250 and then them basically dry out for about 20 mins.... crispys and yummy though my husband says it looks like dried leaves... yeah ok, I tell him keep eating your doritios.....

Comment #17

Made Kale chips tonight and my family loved them too! We enjoyed eating a veggie that was fun and good, but the measurment threw me..

The measurement weight chart says- 65 grams =5 cup. Well I started weighing it so I would not mush it in a measuring cup and the entire bunch was not even 65 grams, so I did end up putting it in a cup and measured 1 cup. I wanted my son and hubby to have some..

So how did you measure it?..

Comment #18

Thanks for the recipe! I just made them and not only do I like them, but so does my 11 year old daughter!..

Comment #19

I used to be a raw foodist. For years I ate dehydrated kale chips rubbed with a paste of nutritional yeast. Delicious! Great vitamins...
