Makes: 4 servings

Cook Time: 30 min

Calories: 47Kcal/serving

Ingredients:

  • 1 Bunch kale
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • ½ tsp Salt, or to taste
  • Seasonings if desired

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F.
  2. Wash and dry kale very well. Remove leaves from thick stems.
  3. Tear kale into large pieces (it will shrink as it bakes). Toss leaves with olive oil to ensure all leaves are coated but not soaked.
  4. Place on a baking sheet and sprinkle with salt and other seasonings if desired.
  5. Bake 17-23 minutes or until kale is dried. Cool before serving
Notes:
    • They Shrink. Tear kale leaves a little bit bigger than you think, about palm-sized.
      They will shrink as they bake.
    • Dry Well. Wash the kale but be sure to dry well (I usually wash the day before if I remember). Water will cause it to steam instead of bake.
    • Under Season. As the kale chips shrink, this means the seasoning has less surface area. This is one of the few places you'll want to season a bit less than you might think you should.
    • Light on the Oil. Adding to much oil can make these soggy, add just enough to coat. Cooking spray can be used in place of oil
    • Do Not Brown. Cook just until crisp but not browned or the flavor will turn bitter.
