Bad News Folks - Kale is Still Good for You (How to Make Super Easy Yummy Kale Chips)

It's unfortunate, but the the latest news is that kale is packed with protein and fiber and stuff.

Even worse - it's still considered healthier than chocolate!  Unless you have a thyroid condition.  Then you may or may not be off the hook.

NPR had this great show on how to make super easy kale chips that you don't even have to pay $6 for a two ounce bag.  So I did my usual sort of semi-following the recipe and came up with this delicious version.

Easy Delicious Microwave Kale Chips

1) Buy the wrong kind of kale.  NPR recommends Lacinato kale, because it's flatter.  But Target only has one kind.

2) Search for where the toddler hid an essential part of the salad spinner.  This gives the cat proper grazing time.

3) Abandon search in favor of watching the cat and child battle it out for the kale.

4) Cat wins.

5) Put kale into a bowl.  Toss with a couple of tablespoons of oil.

6) Accidentally put in double the salt that NPR said.  Because who really looks back at the directions after hearing them once?  

7) Put in whatever seasonings you think would taste good on kale chips.  I used Old Bay Seasoning this past time, because any seasoning that's been around for 70 years probably doesn't cause cancer.

8) Lay on a single layer on a plate.  Microwave 2-3 minutes, or to perfection.  Devour.

8) Cause a small microwave fire making a second batch, by being too distracted by how delicious the first batch is.  #don'tjudgeme #thatwasthefunpart

Kale chips are the only way I like kale! I've never tried them in the microwave before though. That sounds good. Your directions cracked me up!

Jill said...

They're good, right Mark?

Alice - you should try them! They're not horrible at all!

Meredith - me too. Well, once I had a kale salad that I liked. But man, it was only that once. And in a smoothie - ick!!! That's a taste that's REALLY hard to hide!

Wow never knew you could make them in the microwave! That's awesome! #eatmorekale

DO they get crispy in the microwave? I like my kale chips almost burned and charred but I am deeply in favor of faster and easier because when you make kale chips in the oven, sure seems like a lot of effort for such a small bit of end product.

So funny, I do not have a cat but I can certainly replicate heavy handed seasoning and Target Kale.

Jill said...

Kara - They're SO easy that way!

Cid - YES! They get crispy & yummy, just like when you make them in the oven!

Funny Rachelle! I hope you enjoy them!

I love Kale chips, but it's always too much work to do them in the oven. Will have to try this. But I don't have a cat OR a toddler, and my dog won't eat kale...hope it still works!

Kelly Rodriguez said...

I was pleasantly surprised by kale chips. Thank you for sharing. :-) Tweeting.

This was a very sweet post. I haven't had kale in a long time. I'm overseas they don't have it here. :(

Hilda Rodgers said...

These look really easy to make! I love kale but my family doesn't but if I call them chips.... maybe :)

Jill said...

How did I get so behind on the comments AGAIN?!?!?!?

Hilda - they ARE really easy! If I can make them with the help of a two year old, anyone can!

Sorry Maggie. :-( I don't think I would ever have imagined that I'd miss kale, but actually I think I WOULD miss it!

Right Kelly?!?!? They are a surprise. Especially when you've previously eaten icky kale! Thanks for the tweet!

Lara - there is so much less to clean up afterward this way! I hope it worked without the cat & toddler!
