Indian Spiced Baked Kale Chips Recipe – kale chips are one of my favorite snacks. They’ve got the crispy crunchiness of chips and the healthy healthiness of kale. And when I season them like this, they also have the savory, exotic spiciness of an Indian buffet. Indian spiced baked kale chips for the win!
This is pretty much (well, exactly) a seasoning blend to put on your kale chips. If you already have a baked kale chips recipe that works for you, do that and use this to season them. If you don’t have a favorite recipe or you feel like going wild and trying something new, here’s my method for super crispy baked kale chips. It works great for me, plus it incorporates the silly fun of blow drying kale. You haven’t lived till you’ve styled a vegetable.
Kale chips and Indian spices are amazing together. The kale has enough rich flavor of its own to handle all that spicy goodness, and the spices make the kale exotic and addictive. When I make my kale chips this way, they disappear beyond fast.
Even Graeme, a fairly picky eater who tends to distrust vegetables and exotic spices, loves these. And I, a mad lover of vegetables bathed in exotic spices, also love them. Snack harmony achieved.
