It’s a great year for the kale in my garden!
And that is a good thing, because two of my daughters are home, and they LOVE kale! They especially like when I make kale chips. I usually make them simply with some oil and sea salt, but decided to try a BBQ flavoring…it was such a success, that I ended up having to make 3 full batches!
BBQ Kale Chips
Adapted from Jeff Mauro
1 bunch kale, washed and dried (about 1 pound) (from the garden)
Olive oil cooking spray
BBQ Seasoning, recipe follows
1 Tbsp paprika
1 Tbsp smoked paprika
1 Tbsp ancho chile powder
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1/2 Tbsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
Preheat the oven 275 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Remove the thick stem from the kale and discard. Tear the kale leaves into bite-size pieces. Lay the kale onto the prepared baking sheet and spray evenly with cooking spray.
Bake until crispy and browned on the edges, tossing the kale halfway through, 18 to 20 minutes. If they are not fully crisped, continue cooking in 2 minute intervals.
Sprinkle the kale with BBQ Seasoning and enjoy!
Mix the paprika, ancho chile, sugar, garlic powder and salt in a small bowl.
