What The KALE
What The KALE
Chili Lime Kale
Are you trying to find healthy alternatives to tide over your bad snacking habit? Do you like kale chips and cant quite figure out how to make them? I’m here to help!
I had bought a bag of pre-spiced kale last summer and fell in love with the chili lime concoction they had provided me with…but then I thought…”I can make this myself, and it will be a lot cheaper.” Below is my twist on my favorite kale chips. Enjoy.
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Oven Temp: 350ºF
- 1/2 lg bag of kale
- 3 tbsp lime juice
- 1 tsp ground red pepper
- 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
- *Salt and pepper to taste
- Split your large bag of kale in half (I have found that this is the perfect amount of kale to fit onto my stone baking sheet – you may need to adjust accordingly).
- In a large strainer, rinse your kale. While doing so – pull out all stems and separate stem parts from the leafy greens.
- Once thoroughly rinsed, shake out a majority of the water and pour half into a large bowl (with a lid).
- You are going to season half of your kale first before adding the rest of the kale to the bowl. This will ensure proper coverage of spices among all leafy greens.
- Once seasoned, add the rest of the kale to your bowl and repeat the seasoning process.
- Cover your bowl with the lid and shake it so that the kale gets mixed up and coated with everything.
- Let sit for 20 minutes to absorb as much flavor as possible.
- Heat your oven to 350ºF.
- Pour your kale evenly onto the baking sheet. You want to make sure that you don’t have too many overlapping pieces as those will become soggy due to their lack of exposure.
- Bake your kale chips for approximately 7 minutes, remove them from the oven, and shuffle them around, making sure that the opposite side of the kale is exposed so that it gets the perfect crunchiness!
- Return your chips to the oven and continue to bake for an additional 8 minutes (15 minutes total).
- *Before completely removing the kale from the oven, you need to make sure that you don’t have soggy pieces as they won’t be enjoyable. In addition, make sure that you don’t burn them (they should be a dark green/brown color.
- Remove the baking sheet from the oven, let cool, and enjoy 🙂
