Day 5: GF, DF, EF
Made kale chips for the first time!! It was kind of a success and at the same time not really hahaha.
So I washed the kale, ripped off the leaves from the stems and put them in a bowl to mix in some olive oil. Because I’m using a toaster oven, I split the baking into two batches.
Batch 1, I mixed the salt in with the oil
Batch 2, I mixed in the oil first then sprinkled salt on top when it was laid out on the tray
- Batch 1: didn’t bake long enough so most of it was not chip like and still had a lot of moisture
- Batch 2: baked longer so it was light and crispy but SUPER salty! And the bottom layer didn’t have as much heat time so after removing the crispy ones, I put the others back into the oven, only to burn them
It’s amazing how much water gets sucked out leaving only remnants of the tray overloading with kale.
Now I’m looking to see what I can do with the kale stalks – let me know if you have suggestions!!
