Great alternative way to prepare kale. I love it, but it does not remind me much of potato chips, beyond the salty flavor. The texture is more crisp and verges on crumbly, in a melting in your mouth kind of way. I used a very large bunch of Russian kale from my garden, which has just a bit thinner leaf than the lacinto or dinosaur kale that I often see at the store, so this may well influence the texture The thicker leaved varieties may result in chips with more heft. I was concerned that the T of olive oil wouldn't be enough, but it was plenty, and I just lightly salted with garlic salt and a dash of Trader Joe's everyday seasoning - I think any such seasoning mix would be nice. I really think it would be easy to eat way too much kale in this format!
So, I love it, it would be great with a meal or as a snack, but, I don't think most people will feel like this is a one for one substitute for those starchy potato chips! (sweet potato or other root veg chips seem more similar to me)
