Thankfully Angela Liddon, a scientist who turned to experimenting with plant based recipes has done some research into this matter for us. If you follow the tips found on her blog posts your leaves will be baked. But they won’t be burned.
The first time Angela day after created these vegetable chips she thought, “Should they taste burnt like this??”
6 tips for better Kale Chips
Since that first experiment she has come up with 6 tips for Flawless Kale Chips.
- Remove the stems and tear leaves into large pieces
- Wash thoroughly and dry the leaves before beginning
- Don’t skip the oil, but don’t drench it in oil either
- Spread kale onto a single layer on the baking sheet
- It’s all about the low heat for even baking
- Cool for just a few minutes on the baking sheet
It’s important for the leaves to dry after being washed. No-one wants to eat grit with their chips. Dry leaves at the start create a better result in the end.
Below you’ll see a before and after photo of the leaves.
