I made 'em. Thought they were tasty. My husband said he would rather eat paper, but I found them crunchy and salty-two things that I do crave. Kale is a superfood nutritionwise and I have never used it before. Bought it and watched it get old and stale but didn't know what to do with it. I will make these again.
And I think that you could use them with a dip like hummus-there are a bunch of reciepes for them on SparkPeople.
I used really fresh kale, I bought it yesterday at our organic farm stand and it was beautiful, crispy and dark green. I chose to roast it at 250, some of the reciepes said to go as hi as 400, but we are talking about a leafy green here. I roast potatos at 400. So, I preheated the oven, washed and spun the kale dry and tore it into small-med size chunks, tearing off and discarding the center rib.
Put half a head on a cookie sheet, tossed with 1 tsp olive oil, grind of sea salt and grind of pepper. Cooked for 30 min. It is a bit like eating crispy air, but I did find it as satisfying as eating potato chips and I felt better afterwards!
