Oh, Pinterest. How I wanted to believe you.
And, leafy greens-we need to consume more of you but Kale is just not meant to be it, methinks. Maybe I did it wrong. Or, maybe it was too much garlic/salt on the “chips.”
Whatever it was-it just didn’t work for us. Another pin gone wrong.
The Pin: This lovely looking pin for Kale chips. Healthy and delicious is what I’ve heard around the web for ages now.
The Spin: Instead of plain salt I used a garlic sea salt because, garlic.
The Verdict: The cooking time in the recipe was WAY too long. It’s a good thing I kept checking every minute or so because these lovelies would have been blackened had I left them in for the posted time. Every oven IS different so if you try this at home-keep this in mind.
Also-the chips were SO bitter. Maybe we had bad/not fresh Kale. Maybe the garlic sea salt wasn’t a good fit for these leafy greens.
I’m ashamed to admit I ate only a handful (like, 5) and then pitched them.
Completed any pins lately? I’ve love to hear about them.
