This is without a doubt the best way to eat kale. And we eat a lot of kale around here (if you hadn’t noticed how many recipes on this blog include kale ha!). And in less than half an hour, you can be snacking on these too.
Kale chips are a perfect blank canvas for so many flavors combinations, I’ve lost track of how many I’ve tried (and then proceeded to eat all of). As I remember to pay attention to the measurements and ingredients I use, I’ll add them to the list to share with all of you.
The recipe below is one of my favorites. And it calls for only 4 ingredients, including kale.
Start with a big bunch of kale. Remove the stems and tear into small pieces. Or to save a step, buy a bag of prechopped kale from the grocery store. Put the kale into a bowl with olive oil and garlic salt. Toss the kale and gently massage the olive oil and garlic salt into the kale to make sure everything is evenly incorporated.
Bake for about 20 minutes at 325 degrees, stirring every 5 minutes, until crispy. Remove from the oven and sprinkle nutritional yeast over the kale. Then let cool, if you can ignore the temptation to devour these straight from the oven. The kale chips will become even more crispy as they cool.
- 1 bunch kale
- 1 – 2 tbsp olive oil
- ½ tsp garlic salt
- 1 – 2 tsp nutritional yeast
- Preheat oven to 325°.
- Remove the stems from the kale and tear into bite-size pieces and put into a large bowl. Add the olive oil and salt and give the kale a quick toss and gentle massage to make sure the oil and salt evenly cover the kale.
- Put the kale in a single layer on a baking sheet (depending on the size of the bunch, you may need 2 baking sheets).
- Bake for about 20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes, until crispy. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with the nutritional yeast. Let cool (the kale chips will become crisper as they cool).
