Ruffles-Style All Dressed Kale Chips

In the Great Chip Flavour Debate I have always come down hard in favour of all dressed. You see folks, I’m a libra. Which for those of you currently snickering into your coffee cups at my casual mention of astrology, means I have a hard time making decisions. Does this impact me in other parts of my life as well? You betcha. But we’ll save that for another day.

All dressed chips were basically designed for indecisive folks like myself because they just take every seasoning and mix it together into one epic mix of hard-to-distinguish flavours. So as my own personal homage to the glory of All Dressed Ruffles (or Crispers, omg) I have created an delicious recipe for All Dressed Kale Chips that I swear tastes eerily similar to the real thing.

And yes, for your information my favourite pop when I was a kid was also swamp water (aka. the brown liquid that results after mixing together fountain coke, sprite, iced tea, dr. pepper, etc.)

If you’re a newb, I’m sure the idea of Kale Chips sounds strange. But if you’ve ever tried them you know that by following a few easy steps that boring bunch of kale can become something really special.

With toasty flavour & a satisfying crunch, Kale Chips may never serve as a replacement for regular all dressed chips, but they’re definitely worth a DIY try!

Ingredients: 

  • 1 medium sized bunch of kale
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tbsp dried onion flakes
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 dashes liquid smoke (mine is hickory flavoured)
  • 2 dashes soy sauce
  • 2 dashes hot sauce
  • a good coating of salt and pepper
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Tear kale leaves from stems in large chunks and place in a large mixing bowl. Add all ingredients to the bowl and massage (I instantly apologize for using that word) together until the leaves are well coated.
  3. Spread out leaves on a baking sheet covered in parchment paper.
  4. Bake for around 20-30 min or until dry and crispy. If some chips finish earlier than others just remove and let the other ones stay at it for a bit. TRY to let cool before eating to enhance the crisp factor…it’ll be a challenge 😉
Magical Bowl of Crrrrrunchhhhh. 
**Note: This is a healthy recipe in the nutritional sense, but it is FAR from low sodium. In fact this may fulfill your sodium requirement for the year. So dig in at your discretion.
