Kale Chips?

You know how they say you can't eat just one potato chip at a time? Same goes for kale chips. Some time ago I saw kale chips being sold in bags in the health food store, and marveled over the prize of one bag. Was there gold in it? I though it couldn't be that difficult to make them yourself, and I was right.

The way I do them: get a fresh bunch of kale, remove the dark green bits from the thick stems, rip into smaller pieces, toss them in a little olive oil, sprinkle with garlic powder (or any other spice you fancy) and sea salt, and put them in your dehydrator (or on a baking sheet with parchment paper in the oven, the pieces not overlapping). Forget about them for a few hours (don't know about the time in the oven, since I've only done them in the dehydrator). After they have cooled down, they are ready to be eaten. Crunch, crunch, crunch. The dogs are crazy for them too. Of course I shared!

Speaking of dogs. Here are a few pics.

While Happy and Maggie were playing outside, Denny was overlooking his kingdom.

I was so excited to read about your kale chips since I've just cut out of my Aug 2012 Chatelaine magazine the very same recipe but this one is made in the oven. They say to bake at 350F for 17 min (turning the leaves halfway). I now really look forward to making them!

I wonder if Buddy would like kale chips too. We went through a spinach phase when he was a puppy and now he won't eat any of it.

The pups look so cute, as always!!

I've tried kale chips a couple times, but doing them in the oven at a higher heat. Everyone hated them. I've only heard of a couple people that like them. But maybe your recipe will be better!! I will definately give it a try.

I love your photos of Happy, Maggie and Denny! I look forward to seeing your posts. I like the yarn lovelies as well, but the pups are my favs! :D

I meant to say your kale chips sound like something we would love to try making, but I got into how wonderful your photos are! LOL...

Denny really does look regal in that first photo. I love kale chips - I do lemon, garlic, and nutritional yeast, and also massaged kale salad.
