I like kale, so I was surprised that I did not like kale chips. But, I usually prefer plain fruits and veggies.

I seem to get kale every week in my CSA box, so I make them occasionally. A little olive oil and sea salt and they are good to go. They do come out of the oven sometimes looking like dried up autumn leaves you might see on the ground (LOL), but they are tasty. Because of their appearance, the Hubs isn't interested in even trying them. They do crumble easy and that may be due to the variety I've used... not a curly kale, but a flatter leafed one, but that's what I get, so that's what I use.
Love kale chips. Made some chocolate sesame ones a few weeks ago. A lot better than it may sound. I also dehydrate my kale rather than roast in oven. Can make mexican, italian, curry and lots of other things.

I've only made them a couple of times and I really liked them. After eating some, I put the rest in a container to save for another day. They didn't save too well.
I love kale chips! I make them simple with olive oil and sea salt in the oven. The husband and kids DO NOT like, and give me a hard time when I cook them because of the smell. I love the smell, but I get the rolling eyes and "Mom's making kale chips again" comments from them. LOL They do leave a very strong and kind of gross after taste in your mouth, so be sure you have a drink or a toothbrush if you are running off to a meeting or something. :)

Yes--I like to make them with coconut oil.
You can make them sweet (add a little brown sugar, honey, brown rice syrup, etc.) and add cinnamon, nutmeg, coconut, etc.
You are worth it!

I do mine with sea salt, garlic and parmesan cheese. They are so addictive, I can eat a whole bunch of kale in a day when I make them this way (and I usually do!). Lucky for me my fiance hates them! I think they make the house smell a bit funny when they're baking, but I can live with that considering how yummy they are!

I saw Hungry Girl make them and thought it a little over the top but after reading everyone's post I have to rethink my position on Kale Chips!

Make them at least weekly! This week I made salt & vinegar! YUM!! I buy the pre chopped from Trader Joe's, for convenience sake...poured some apple cider vinegar directly in the bag and shook it around. Drained it and dumped the kale on a sprayed cookie sheet and added some sea salt... Low and slow in the 250 oven...they were amazing!
My family absolutely adores kale chips. We could easily go through a head a day (but that gets expensive!). I massage in a bit of olive oil, then lay on the dehydrator sheets and sprinkle a bit of salt. 115-125 for 12 hrs makes outstanding chips!
