Baked Veggie Chip Recipies

 ChipsPic1    Soy and Sesame Kale Chips

Ingredients

  • 7 to 8 oz. (1 small bunch) Lacinato kale (often sold as “dinosaur kale” or “Tuscan kale”)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 300°.
  2. Rinse kale and thoroughly blot dry with a kitchen towel. Tear leaves from ribs; discard ribs.
  3. Tear leaves into 4-in. pieces.
  4. Pour oil and soy sauce into a large bowl, add kale, and toss to coat evenly.
  5. Arrange leaves in a single layer on 2 rimmed baking sheets.
  6. Bake, switching pan positions after 13 minutes.
  7. Sprinkle with sesame seeds; bake until leaves are crisp but not browned, 5 to 7 minutes more.

Note: The secret to getting these crisp is to avoid crowding the leaves on the baking sheets. Also, keep an eye on them—they can scorch quickly.  Make ahead: Up to 1 week, stored airtight.
