Duck Fat Kale Chips
D'Artagnan | Yield: SERVES 2 | Cook Time: 12 MINUTES
A lot of people are unaware that duck fat is closer nutritionally to olive oil than other animal fats, with 75% monounsaturated fat, only 13% saturated fat, and omega fatty acids. These crispy kale chips are sinfully delicious, yet still pretty virtuous and totally addicting.
- 1 bunch kale, washed and dried
- 2 tablespoons duck fat, softened
- Fine sea salt & freshly ground black pepper
- Piment d'Espelette
- 2 tablespoons finely grated parmesan cheese
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Remove tough kale ribs and discard. Tear kale leaves into chip sized pieces and place into a large bowl.
- Drizzle with duck fat, toss to evenly coat.
- Arrange kale in a single layer on a ribbed sheet pan, being careful not to crowd or overlap.
- Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and piment d'Espelette to taste. Sprinkle evenly with parmesan cheese.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 9 to 12 minutes, or until chips are crisp and gently browned around the edges, turning the sheet pan once. Remove kale chips to a bowl, serve immediately.
