Best Kale Chips Ever!

I'm probably way out of loop here, but up until a few years ago, I had never even heard of Kale.  My first experience was when I was tricked into trying it in a smoothie.  Since it was actually good (was not expecting that), I tried the kale chips that soon followed.  They were great, just too darn labor intensive.  My mother-in-law came up with her own method that is much easier, and they rock!  The hardest part is keeping it away from the kiddos.

  • Trim stem, wash, and ice down one bunch of Lacinato Kale (Dinosaur Kale)
  • Cut minimally, only to remove main vein and any bad spots you may have
  • After drying on towel, coat with coconut oil and a squirt of lemon juice
  • Place in oven to dehydrate on baking sheet lined with parchment paper for 10-15 min @350
  • Top with parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper
  • Devour

As far as storage goes, it has never been an issue because ours disappear within an hour or two on the counter. 

Let us know what you think if you try our recipe, and feel free to share any seasoning suggestions or your own recipes.  Happy baking!
