Kale chips seem to be all the rage right now. I was pretty skeptical at first, thinking they couldn’t taste that great, or anything like chips. I was pleasantly surprised when I took the plunge and made this recipe, they are so crunchy and chip-like! I made two batches, one without the seasonings and one with. The seasoned batch was so much better. If you love crunchy and salty snacks you will really love these!
- Large bunch of kale
- 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- Thoroughly wash the kale and dry well on a clean towel. Pull the kale leaves off of the center ribs in large chip-sized pieces. If they don’t seem completely dry you can throw them in a salad spinner to dry completely.
- Toss the kale pieces in a large bowl with the olive oil until evenly coated. Use 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil, depending on how much kale you have. You don’t want them to be drenched in oil, just lightly coated.
- Combine all of the spices and salt in a small bowl.
- Place the kale on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Sprinkle both sides of the kale lightly with the seasoning mixture. Make sure they don’t overlap each other or they won’t get nice and crispy.
- Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes, or until they are crisp, but still green. Keep a close eye on them so they don’t get too dark.
