I just made kale chips for the first time...yummy...but I`m wondering if they are induction friendly??

01-31-2010, 01:48 PM
Most definitely Induction friendly.

01-31-2010, 01:50 PM
What are the ingredients? Are they all on the list of induction approved eating? If not, then no...it really is always that simple. Sounds like something for OWL...GOOD LUCK!!

01-31-2010, 01:50 PM
ooh thanks!! I`m happy to hear that! The chips are very good but some are bitter and some are not...I don`t get it.

01-31-2010, 01:51 PM
what is kale ? but chips sounds yummy

01-31-2010, 01:52 PM
The ingredients are : kale, olive oil, salt. Simple

01-31-2010, 01:52 PM
I looked up kale and it is a form of cabbage. Sounds fine for induction to me.

01-31-2010, 01:53 PM
kale is like a cross between cabbage and lettuce. They come out so light and crispy from the oven...its pretty crazy to me.

Not only are they induction friendly they are a high carb veggie, perfect to get your veggie 12-15nc from.

I love kale chips!

01-31-2010, 01:56 PM
yeah I looked up kale chips just now and there was a picture there too.

01-31-2010, 01:58 PM
oh I also sprinkled a little garlic powder (lightly) on some of them...I like those A LOT!

01-31-2010, 01:58 PM
OOPS perfect to get *some*of* your veggie 12-15 nc from.

01-31-2010, 01:59 PM
yup, they`re awesome for veggie counts and taste good. Also, dip in some homemade guacamole and get some healthy fat in and hey, you`re set :-)

I do have a lonely little avacodo sitting in the fridge wih nothing to do...

01-31-2010, 02:07 PM
How do you prepare them? Do you brush them with olive oil and just bake?

01-31-2010, 02:16 PM
A video about making them. http://www.danispies.com/archives/howto_video/kale_chips_-_video.php

If you don`t want to watch the video, you just pull off the leaves, put them in a bowl, drizzle with Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO), salt and bake in the oven.

I suggest the video, merely because I didn`t know what I was looking for in the grocery store. I had never heard of or ate this wonderful veggie before.

01-31-2010, 02:19 PM
Haha, I think your avacodo has found its destiny, and what a tasty fate it`s found.

01-31-2010, 02:52 PM
will have to try these.
doubt anyone else here will tho.
just have to wait til either tues or wed to go shopping.

I started pulling them out of the oven at 7 min. just before they start to brown. I think the browning contributes to the bitter taste. They are still green but crispy at that point.

So are they really bitter? Or are they more yummy than bitter? I was wondering if they were worth it or am I going to be disappointed?!

02-01-2010, 06:18 PM
I say give it a try! A bunch of kale costs less than a cup of coffee--try a few leaves for chips and if you don`t like it, steam the rest (kale takes much longer than spinach to cook, so allow enough time to steam or boil it until tender).

making some right now. will let you know how i like them

02-03-2010, 08:22 PM
didn`t really care for them. left an after taste in my mouth. can`t say i didn`t try them tho :)

02-03-2010, 08:57 PM
I love them, if they bake too long I find they do get bitter (but that didn`t stop me from eating them!) They are one of my favourite snacks. I had them in a restaurant once, they left the pieces a little bigger, was a great surprise to me how much I enjoyed them. Now I have discovered them again!

I"m going to try these and maybe dip them in my homemade Ranch. We`ll see how it goes.

You can use about a tablespoon of tamari (like soy sauce but with no wheat) instead of the flour. Mix with the oil before massaging the kale. Kills any bitterness.
