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!!

I looked up kale and it is a form of cabbage. Sounds fine for induction to me.

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!

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 :-)

How do you prepare them? Do you brush them with olive oil and just bake?

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.

Haha, I think your avacodo has found its destiny, and what a tasty fate it`s found.

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?!

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).

Enjoy!

Best,
Kathy

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.
