This week I received swiss chard in my CSA box, I’ve never cooked them before, but I knew I could use them like kale. So OF COURSE I made baked chard chips. They’re my favorite healthy snack to crunch on while drinking a cold beer on my deck ! (I like to pretend they counteract the not-so-great-for-me beer!)
What You’ll Need:
1 bunch Swiss Chard
1 Tablespoon Olive oil
1 Teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning (OR your favorite grilling seasoning)
Preheat your over to 250 degrees. Wash and dry your Chard leaves, then rip the leaves away from the tough center stem. Place on a large cookie sheet and drizzle with the olive oil, tossing the leaves to evenly coat. Sprinkle your seasoning over the leaves and place in the oven. Allow to bake for 20 minutes, then flip the leaves and bake an additional 20 minutes. At the end of 40 minutes, test one of the leaves for crispiness, they should snap and crunch like a potato chip.
Once the chips have reached the desired crispiness, remove them from the oven and allow to cool completely. Alex and I ended up eating all of our chips in about…10 minutes… but if you do need to keep them longer than that make sure they are stored in an airtight container, other wise your chips will go soft, and then what was the point of baking them?!
