Next time you are in the mood for something crispy and salty – try these homemade Kale Chips. Kale is a hardy green, so it can stand up to a high oven temp, and becomes nice and crispy in under 10 minutes. Kale is also a nutrient packed food – full of vitamins and minerals like A, C, and K, Potassium and Calcium – as well as a great source of fiber.
Eater’s Note: I am still experimenting with how to store kale chips. They are crispy when you eat them right away (after cooled), but I have yet to find a way to store them so they keep their crunch. If anyone has any tips, please share!
- 1 or 2 bunches of kale (washed and dried)
- olive oil (few tbsp)
- sprinkle of course sea salt
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees
- Remove kale from the stalk and tear into large peices
- Pour a few tablespoons of olive oil into a small bowl, and using your fingers, dip into the olive oil and gently spread a thin coating onto the kale leaves.
- Arrange kale on a baking sheet in a single layer and sprinkle with salt.
- Bake for 5 min, turn over, and bake for another 3-5 min (watching closely because it burns easily).
- Allow to cool, and enjoy!
