Kale Chips

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!

Kale Chips

  • 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

Directions:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Combine all of the spices and salt in a small bowl.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
