SO many of my friends and healthier acquaintances talk about the virtues of kale chips. Uber delicate with terrific crunch I thought that maybe a little smoke could improve the chances of me eating them more regularly..

Kale has a lot of good crap in it  - vitamins and all that other healthy stuff that good for you.  So eating it is probably on the list of things I should do more.

 

What happened next is pretty awesome. I think I am in love with smoked kale chips.

I shit you not they tasted like bacon after I smoked them. My husband, my oldest daughter and I are all in awe of this.  Now let me say I have been doing a lot of smoking this week. Mostly pork and maybe its just my cooker that’s giving off some porky goodness extra flavoring  but seriously give these a try. Well worth your time.

  • 1 large bunch kale
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp pepper

Preheat your grill to 250F Indirect. (****Very important this is indirect especially when you use frogmats)

Remove the stems from the Kale and tear into bite sized pieces. Arrange the kale in a single layer on frogmats over a cookie sheet. Sprinkle with extra virgin olive oil and season with salt & pepper.

Place the frogmat on the grill. * I used my Traeger grill for this and it worked out fantastic. Grill indirect for 15 minutes. Turn kale leaves over and grill another 5-10 minutes or just until crispy. They should be a bright green and should not be brown. Serve to your family or hoard them for yourself. Enjoy.

 

I have no idea how long these things last. We ate them all. You are on your own for that decision.
