The nutritional info for Kale is quite amazing! One cup of kale contains 34 calories, 6.7g of total carbohydrates and 1.3g of dietary fiber. This is a great way to eat your vegetables and not add butter, cheese and other bad fats to your diet. I have been making these all winter and spring and I am just now getting around to blogging them. I have tried making many different versions, like using salt and vinegar and spicy red pepper. This Maplewood is by far my favorite version.
1 bunch of Kale
Grill Mates Maplewood seasoning (this is a dry powder seasoning sold in the spice aisle at most markets)
Heat oven to 375°
Wash your Kale. Seperate the leaves from the "spine" of the Kale by running a knife down both sides of the ribbing. Tear or cut your leaves into chip size pieces. Place the cut leaves into a large bowl. Drizzle a little bit of olive oil over the top of them. (Don't use too much or the burn a lot easier). Use your hands to toss all the olive oil around the Kale. They should have an even glistening of oil on the leaves. Place the oiled leaves onto a cookie sheet or broiler pan. Place in oven for 15 minutes. Using tongs, flip the chips over. Place back in the oven for 10-15 more minutes or until they are crisp.
