SO HOW'D IT GO?

Amazing. When I made it a year ago, I made the mistake of not drying the kale after I washed it. This time, I washed it, and then dried it in the salad spinner. I used oil in a spray can to evenly and lightly oil the kale. It crisped quickly this time around.
We're having it with malt vinegar now.

Very interesting.  Instead of salt, I used my hot n spicy seasoning recipe on top and they tasted like very spicy potato chips.  Definitely will make it again. ;)

I love this recipe! Kale is nutritious, cheap, and available year-round, and there couldn't be an easier way to eat it. I modified this recipe by adding a dash of vinegar and freshly ground black pepper, and tossing it in olive oil since I had no spray. So yum, and healthy too!

I was looking forward to trying these. I had some leftover kale so I decided to give it a go. When I first tasted them I was like "huh... not bad" but as i was getting into them, the flavor seemed to get stronger and stronger. I quickly got sick of eating them. I think its due to the fact that I have not had kale "straight up" in the past. Its always in with a medley of vegetables so its flavor works and is less noticable. I think for me, the kale taste was a bit strong. I did like their texture though. I liked how close to chips their texture turned out to be. I think if I was more into kale this would be an awesome little snack.

I love greens and I love salt, so these were amazing!  :)>>> I've been meaning to try them for a long long time and eventually got round to it the other night.  I liked them so much I made three batches in one night and got through three quarters of a big bag of kale! Definitely a winner  :)

My partner made these in the toaster oven b/c we don't have a regular oven.  Our plan was to serve them with the cauliflower hummus in "Veganomicon".  But we forgot we did not have a working blender.  So the cauliflower hummus was more of a chickpea/cauliflower mush with tahini sauce, and the kale chips never quite crisped up.  But they all actually tasted fabulous together!  Just not what we had originally envisioned.  Oh, and he spiced the kale chips with some kelp and cayenne.

I am in the process of making these as I write.  I really love the texture of the chips as the recipe states, more so than not spraying the Kale with olive oil at all.

I've been looking forward to doing more with Kale and this will definitely stay in my recipe box.

My first taste of Kale and it was really good.  I took someone's suggestion of adding NY and Bragg's to the spice mixture.  I was almost scared to try them because of how they looked but was pleasantly surprised at how good they actually turned out to be.  I didn't have a problem with them being soggy...all were really crispy.

Just for the record, and for those who don't know, kale does not contain any cholesterol. Cholesterol only comes from animal foods. There are no plants that contain cholesterol. This includes canoloa oil, olive oil, ect.
