I love the coed gatherings but there’s nothing quite like a little girl talk.
Ladies, come on over to my place and I’ll serve you iced nettle tea.
I’ll make you pitch in.
But at least I’ll keep your glass full and wine and dine you by candlelight.
And I’ll make you kale chips.
This is not a recipe. It’s a suggestion.
- Lots of clean, dry kale torn into medium sized pieces
- Toasted sesame oil
- Natural peanut butter
- Nutritional yeast
- Salt (preferably smoked)
- In a large bowl drizzle the kale with a bit of oil, a spoon or three of peanut butter, a heavy dusting of nutritional yeast, and a pinch of salt. Get your hands
- in there, gently squeeze, mix, and blend the ingredients with your fingers until everything is distributed some what evenly.
- Lay the coated kale leaves in a single layer on a cookie sheet (preferably with a silpat on it).
- Bake in a 450* oven until dry and crisp, maybe 10-15 minutes. Watch them closely to avoid burning.
These chips were diminished to a bowl of nutty, yeasty crumbs by the time dinner was served. Personally, I couldn’t keep my hands out of the mixing bowl before baking them up. On those days that I don’t want the hassle of cooking or it’s too hot to turn on the oven I will skip the baking and serve this as a raw kale salad.
The wife made us Kale chips recently for the first time and I have to admit we weren’t huge fans. However, she made them fairly au naturale and I’m now thinking we need to try again with a little peanut butter. That looks great! Never would have thought of it. Thanks for the tip.
Don’t hold back on the fat, we’re going for chips afterall!
Love this! Beautiful pictures and the kale chips look divine. What a great combination of flavors. I’m definitely feeling inspired to get more creative in the kitchen. Of course, the company of good friends is always great. 🙂

Great, I’ll be over next month! 🙂
You’re on! 🙂
The cheesy peanutty sauce just sounds perfect. And sesame oil is great too, I just started liking that but need to get my hands on some again. I have about 7 different cooking fats in rotation though, I can never decide which to use haha.
I say, if in doubt go coconut! 🙂
Wish I were closer, I would love to get some girl time with you!
