Kale chips seem to be pretty popular right now, as I have seen them mentioned on various food blogs and I decided to try my luck with them. Despite not really reinventing the wheel with them, I have a couple ideas for when I make them next time, on how to spice them up a bit.
You’ll see the basic recipe in a minute, but here are some ideas how how to make them better. First, being from Maryland, i think they would be tasty with a little bit of old bay on top, giving them a Maryland taste. Also, I think adding some pine nuts toward the end and then Parmesan cheese would give them a rustic and Italian feel. Finally, I think you could even put curry powder on them and eat with your favorite curry or other Indian cuisine. Anyway you do it, I do not really think you can go wrong.
