Last Friday I cut a lot of kale from the garden. Some of it will be cooked down with caramelized onions and garlic (my fave), but I wanted to make a little treat with some of it as well. I came across a recipe for kale chips with lemon essential oil so I decided to give it a try.
Kale ~ a couple large hands full, washed and cut to roughly the same size
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 Drops Lemon Essential Oil
Salt & Pepper
Kale is cut, washed & dried
Combine olive oil & lemon essential oil in large bowl
Toss kale in bowl and massage oil onto both sides of each leaf until completely coated
Place kale in a single layer on parchment lined baking sheets
Sprinkle with salt & pepper
Bake in 200 degree oven for about 45 min, watching to be sure chips don't burn. After about 45 min, I turned my chips over and baked for another 5 min or so. You want them to be crispy, not leathery.
Pour into bowl or onto plate and enjoy. They are delicious!
If there are any leftovers, store in a ziploc bag or airtight container.
