During the latest family party hosted by me, these kale chips got the most attention. I wasn't sure whether to be happy or offended, because they took the least effort to make. This was literally the simplest dish I put on the table that day. People were very surprised at how good it was. Some thought at first that this was a bowl of potpourri in the middle of the table :-)))
The chips come out crispy and delicious, even if you're not a fan of kale. The nutritional values are probably lost in the frying process, so it's probably safe to say that the chips are not as healthy as fresh kale. BUT they are a very fun snack and definitely more healthy than potato chips. You can munch them as they are, add them to salads or on toasts.
1 pack of kale, washed and dried
1 tea spoon salt (I used pink Himalayan salt)
2 table spoons olive oil
Remove the white hard stems in the middle of every kale leaf, with a knife or just tear the leaves with your hands into pieces that would eventually become chips.
Put the leaves in a bowl, sprinkle with salt and add olive oil. Toss with your hands to coat every piece in a layer of oil.
Transfer into the air fryer basket in a single layer. Don't overlap. The rest will wait for their turn in the next batch.
Cook on 190 C / 375 F for 4-5 minutes. Shake it after 2 minutes to prevent sticking.
That's it. Enjoy.
