Kale is a form of cabbage and is highly nutritious. It has tons of antioxidants. Just make sure when you prepare it, that you wash it off and dry it thoroughly. I just use paper towels and make sure I get it pretty dry. Also, you can add ANY seasonings you can think of to it and make a great chip. I've tried red pepper flakes, basil and Parmesan, salt and pepper, all kinds of Mrs. Dash, and anything else I have sitting around. I haven't had a bad kale chip yet!
1 Bunch of washed and Dried Kale
Sea Salt, to taste
Olive Oil, for drizzling
*Along with any other seasoning you like
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- Cover two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
- Take each individual Kale leaf and cut out the large thick stem and discard. You want to make the chips out of the leaves.
- Lay each kale leaf onto parchment paper and drizzle olive oil (lightly) followed by salt and any other seasoning you want to add.
- Bake for 10-15 minutes. The chips burn easily, so after 10 minutes, start to check every minute! (11 minutes usually is the perfect time for my chips, some come out crispy and some a little chewier, but I get a good mix at this point.)
