Kale chips are amazing.
There’s one problem though. Have you tried making them? It’s not so easy.
Kale, leafy, green, and porous as it is, has this amazing ability to soak up moisture. Know what that means?
Can’t make delicious kale chips unless you are prepared to be very, very patient.
Plan to spend at least 10 minutes going through paper towel after paper towel (so bad) to dry this stuff out.
Kale needs to be dry before it goes in the oven
If you’re anything like me (sorry, if you are) then you’ll be tempted to throw the kale right into the oven. Not so fast, buddy.
Soggy kale in the oven == soggy kale out of the oven.
Fear not, lazy brethren. There is a way still.
Enter the food dehydrator.
No more drying. 100% more eating delicious kale.
This recipe is simple:
1. Get kale, wash and shake dry.
2. Use kitchen shears or a good knife to dice the kale into nice bite sized pieces.
3. Add oil, salt, and pepper. Maybe a good sprinkling of cajun seasoning if you’re feeling adventurous.
4. Set your dehydrator to about 135F and let the kale sit for about 4-5 hours.
5. Throw away your wretched oven (kidding)
It should be perfect.
It really CAN be that easy. And you know what they say: if you’re lazy and you know it, eat some kale!
