Love the crunch, but not the calories that comes with potato chips? Make these sea salt and vinegar kale chips with a hint of parmesan cheese for the most delicious and healthy snack ever!
I heard they either come out crunchy as can be or soggier than a wet sock.
Can you believe this was my first time making kale chips?! MAN, I’ve been missing out like yeah. I am a total texture person. I love me a crunchy homemade kettle chip, but I know they aren’t that good for you. They’re made with white potatoes and usually fried in some sort of saturated-fat filled oil. No me gusta.
Now these chips. A+, 100%, Gold-Star Status.
Kale chips are so easy to make!
I literally washed, dried, seasoned, and baked these guys in under 15 minutes. HUZZAH.
I was super excited to find a new use for my Nakano Rice Vinegar, too. Sea Salt and Vinegar is one of my favorite chip flavors, so I knew it would go great on these bad boys.
The parmesan was a last minute addition.
Cheese makes the world go round and really gave some more great texture to this recipe!
I feel like when I have kids, this is what I’m going to tell them a chip is 😉
Sea Salt and Vinegar Kale Chips
- 4 cups chopped kale packed
- 3-4 teaspoons rice vinegar
- Olive oil cooking spray
- Himilayan sea salt to taste
- grated parmesan cheese to taste
- First, rinse kale to remove any dirt. Then, pat the water off with paper towel, removing as much water as possible. Next, remove kale leafs from the stem and break into bite-sized pieces.
- Then, prep baking sheet, by spraying with olive oil (or coconut oil) cooking spray. Then lay the kale evenly on the baking sheet, making sure none of the kale is overlapping one another.
- Spray kale with more olive oil cooking spray. The, drizzle on about 2 teaspoons of Nakano Rice Vinegar and toss with your hands. Finally, season with Himilayan sea salt.
- Bake at 350º for 10-12 minutes, or until kale chips turn golden brown and are crunchy. About half way through, I stopped and flipped the baking sheet around.
Kale chips- love em or hate em?
wow!!! What a blog. The way you explain it the way you use this word is mind-blowing. I just love this. Thanks for spreading this knowledge to us.
Fantastic! This literally blew my mind. Having recently become a huge fan of kale I have struggled to move beyond using in a salad or a sandwich topping.
Definitely going to push the potatoes aside next time!
WOO! Yes, they are so much fun to make and eat. Specially if you love the crunch!
Ohh I love kale chips and salt + vinegar but never thought of putting them together! Can’t wait to make these!
GET ON THAT SISTA!
I looooovee kale chips!! I have never tried them with rice vinegar, but these ones look like a win:)
So num. I’ve already made this 3 times 😉
Yummo all about the kale chips. The first time I made them they ended up burnt to shreds, whoopsies. The oven isn’t always my best friend. Sea salt + vinegar chips are the best though.
LOL. But then every time you get them PERFECT, it’s that much better because you know how much of a fail they can be. 😀
Salt and vinegar chips are my absolutely favourite flavour combination besides chilli! Your photos = epic. I need to tell you my kale chip story. I overcooked them and they disintegrated in my hands.
LOL. At least they didn’t light up in flames in your oven. That woulda been a good story to tell.
I have yet to try kale chips, but salt & vinegar chips are definitely my fave. 🙂 I have to give these a go soon.
STOP. Get on the kale chip band wagon. MEOW!
Boom! I just bought a big ‘ole bag of kale yesterday so I am making these tonight! I don’ t think I have any rice vinegar right now so I think I might try with white wine vinegar.
BOOM shakalaka. Apparently NYC sold out of kale because of the storm…I saw a Buzzfeed article 😛
Kale chips have been on my must-cook list for forevah!!! Need to make a batch of these bad boys soon!
It’s way easier than you think. Took me like 2 min to prep.
Yup!! I LOVE kale chips! I may have to give these a try in my dehydrator!
WAHHHHHH. I didn’t know you could use a dehydrator to make kale chips! What the what.
Oh my gosh, yes! It’s the only way to make ’em!
I made kale chips once… they were much closer to the soggy sock. They were deliciously crispy when they first came out of the oven, but they just fell flat. Boo! I’ll have to give them another try soon.
Weird! I guess I wouldn’t know because I ate the entire batch in one sitting. #oops
I love making kale chips with nutritional yeast– I’m lactose intolerant but it still gives the kale a nice cheesy favor. SO good.
I need to try nutritional yeast…can you believe I’ve never had it!
These look amazing! I love kale chips, I could eat them every day!
All day erry day!
Salt and vinegar chips are my jammmm! Making these ASAP!
