What can make Kale Chips even more guilt free. No Oil! ;)
I do make with oil kale chips, whenever we pick up a bunch of Kale. With a variety of spices, cajun, garam masala, chipotle peppers and the lot, they make for a fun snack. And this Kale is the first batch from our urban garden patch!
Pictured below are rubbed with a little oil and made on stove top. with some cajun spice.
Without oil, they are crunchy, but the spices dont stick as well. The oil free ones do well when served with a side like Vegan ranch, hummus, nut butters or any other dressing/sauce of choice. I made these on stove top. you need a large pan and it probably takes more than 1 batch to get a bowl full of chips, but if you are going to be in the kitchen cooking something else, these come about easily.
To bake, bake on lower heat about 250 F, 7-10 minutes.

You can also make these with other sturdy greens like chard. How do you like your Kale chips!
