kale bunch

It’s a quick kale chip recipe with a good flavor. You can eat them the way they are as a healthy snack or grind them for topping on a bowl of rice. Very versatile.

Baked Kale Chips

Adapted from various places + "trial & error"

  • 1-2 bunches Curly Kale
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Sea Salt to taste

Preheat the oven to 350F.

Rinse the kale and dry well, then remove the thick stems. Cut or tear the leaves into 1-2 inches pieces. In a bowl, mix olive oil and apple cider vinegar. Toss the kale into the vinaigrette until coated. Line a baking sheet pan with parchment paper, spread the leaves in a single layer. Sprinkle salt. Bake until crisp but not burnt, about 15-20 minutes. Edges of the leaves should be brown. Cool on a baking sheet.

Side Notes:

Try not to burn the kales.

Every year, I try to come up with new items to bring to a super bowl party but end up making my famous Bread Pudding. I’ve gotten many compliments on it and shared the recipe with many people.

This year, I wanted something different. Quick but fun, yummy but crowd-pleaser… short list of requirements. While thinking (hard), I ran into this awesome recipe from Kellog’s website – Chocolate Nutty Mini-Football Treats. Oh perfect. It was the first time for me to make Rice Krispie Treats. Mad Scientist was a little apprehensive because… who knew it comes out like a shape of football, and is it going to taste like the rice krispie treats he grew up with? Pressure was definitely on.

On another note, making was definitely fun. The only item I skipped was the peanut butter; knowing that there will be friends with nut allergies. And the photo is the outcome.
