Gochugaru Collard Chips

A key ingredient in Korean cooking, gochugaru is a sun-dried red chile pepper that is coarser than regular chile powder. (You might recognize gochugaru as the red pepper flecks in your favorite kimchi!) Here, we use it to add a light kick to these crispy collard green chips. If you can't find gochugaru, you can easily substitute with chile powder.
