Crispy Kale

This is a popular human recipe but since kale is a highly nutritious vegetable that is rich in anti-oxidants, Mommy is happy to share this tasty and healthy snack with Preston. If you are not a big fan of kale (like Mommy), you will be surprised how yummy the crispy kale is.
There are many recipes of crispy kale online. Mommy’s recipe is based on one of her favorite food blogs: SteamyKitchen-Baked Crispy Kale.
Ingredients (scale up if needed):
5 cups of leafy kale, torn into bite-sized pieces, thick stems removed.
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt/seasoning salt (for humans)
1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
2. Wash and dry kale thoroughly (very important!)
3. Drizzle olive oil over the kale and toss with your hands until all surfaces are coated.
4. Spread the kale evenly on the baking sheet. Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes. Toss slightly at the 10 minutes and check every 2 minutes from this point on until the leaves turn crispy. Remove the kale from the oven immediately. (This step is tricky. Mommy burnt two batches before finally figuring out the right timing)
5. Save some unseasoned crispy kale for your pooch! Sprinkle the remaining crispy kale with salt/seasoning salt.

Crispy kale vs. raw kale. Preston sure knows the difference…

  8. Hi Preston,

    HU-mom makes our food, we are on the raw diet. The base of our “veggie glop” is usually kale! We love it. Of course, she adds other things to the glop, so I guess we can’t say would eat it by itself.
    Your expression when offered the raw kale is exactly the same expression I give when I don’t like something! Must truly be a Puggle one!!! lol.

    Hu-mom also makes kale soup with spicy sausage, potatoes and onions. We don’t get to taste that. Your recipe sounds yummy, thinking hu-mom will probably try it!

    Drools and licks,
    Minnie and sometimes Mack

  11. Ha! I love that he could tell the difference. Preston has a very discerning palate!
