Kale Chips

MMmmmmm! Kale! Not everyone loves kale like I do, but this recipe may convince even the most skeptical to give it a try. Loaded with nutritional goodness, there are many kinds of kale to try: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kale

Try kale chips and snack away with wild abandon, knowing you’re eating something good for you! I have been making these at least once a week since mid winter!


1 large bunch or kale. Try curly and lacinato varieties. Strip leaves from the tough stem and cut or rip into pieces.

1-2 tsp olive oil

pinch salt and pepper, to taste

*optional, sprinkle with nutritional yeast: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nutritional_yeast


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Place kale pieces on a large baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil.

Sprinkle with salt and pepper (add more after cooking if you wish)

Place baking sheet in oven and cook for about 10 minutes. Turn kale chips over with a spatula and cook for another 10-15 minutes, checking them occasionally to see if they are getting crispy.

When the chips are crispy (be careful not to burn them), remove them, allow to cool and place in a big bowl.

Sprinkle with more salt and pepper and nutritional yeast (to taste)

    I like tamari on the kale chips. Have you tried it? Put it on when you’re tossing the kale in olive oil pre-cooking. Nice & salty!
