Recipe: Crispy Chard Chips
Crispy Chard Chips
1 bunch chard (or kale, or any hearty green)
1-2 T olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Rinse the chard leaves and tear them into
pieces-they can be as large or small as you want-I went pretty large.
Drizzle two cookie sheets with the olive oil and divide the chard pieces
between them. Using your hands, toss the leaves with the olive oil until
they are evenly coated. Sprinkle with salt and pepper (and other spices if
you want-garlic salt, paprika, chili powder...go crazy!).
Place on a middle rack in the oven and bake until dry and crispy, about 20
minutes. Once they are cool, they shouldn't stick to the bottom of the pan
(thanks to the olive oil) but they may need to be gently loosened to remove
them. You can store these in a Tupperware container or plastic baggies, but
trust me, they'll go pretty quickly.
