Remember those Chocolate Chip Cookies from the other day? Well, you might also remember that I mentioned Kale Chips. Well, actually Diane my neighbor mentioned Kale Chips. She had seen them in the stores, but wasn’t sure that they were worth the money…..
and I was wondering the same thing! Are they really worth $5.99 for a small bag?
What do they taste like? Do I really want to spend $5.99 to find out? Ummm, No…not really! So I made my own. 🙂
They were actually really simple to make. I went with a basic Garlic/Sea Salt/Pepper mixture and they were…..interesting! Diane and I had both expected them to taste bitter, which thankfully they did not. She was not impressed with them, and was definitely glad that she had not spent the money to try them.
They will not replace my favorite Cape Cod Kettle Chips as a chip substitute, but they do make a worthy salt satisfying snack. I mean you are eating crispy lettuce after all. I would like to try them again in the future, by re-creating a Kool Ranch version like the ones at the grocery store!
My bunch of Kale cost $1.99 and it almost filled a small zipper top bag. I already have a store brand Garlic/Sea Salt/Pepper mix and olive oil, so it is definitely less expensive to make it yourself. You also get to control the amount of seasonings! 🙂
So…..have you ever tried Kale Chips? Let me know your favorite flavor combination. 🙂
