Kale Chips
kale chips in a bowl
Yield: 6 Servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 bunch of kale, gently rubbed under cold running water, stems removed
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil

Directions:

  1. Wash hands with soap and water.
  2. Preheat oven to 200 degrees F. Lightly spray two large baking sheets with cooking spray.
  3. Gently rub kale under cold running water, stems removed. Thoroughly dry kale using a salad spinner if available, or by patting with a paper towel.
  4. Remove the leaves from the main thick stem (also called the rib) in the middle of the lead using your hands or kitchen scissors. Tear the leaves into bite-size pieces.
  5. Toss leaves with vegetable oil.
  6. Place pieces on a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes, remove baking sheets from oven, turn kale chips over.
  7. Check after baking an additional 10 minutes to determine if they are evenly crisp. Continue baking if needed. The time may vary with your oven. Record the times that work for you.
  8. Let chips cool on a baking sheet. Then transfer to a bowl and sprinkle on optional seasonings, if desired.
  9. Store leftovers in a sealed container.
Notes: 
  • Seasonings that can be used include salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, Parmesan cheese, taco seasoning, or any other flavors you like.
