Simple Kale Chips


  • 1 bunch of kale (I used curly kale & lacinato kale)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil (I usually use a little less)
  • Use one or more of the following: mineral salt, pepper, spice blend, herb, nutritional yeast or whatever you feel like using.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Wash kale thoroughly and let dry. Remove leaves from stem and break up into the size chips you would like. Put leaves into a large bowl and drizzle with olive oil. Massage until coated.

At this point you can either add your spices in the bowl and mix, or you can lay them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and sprinkle what you want to use, which is what I did. Use your best judgement.

I put them in the oven for about 10 min. Since I put both types of kale in the oven at the same time, the lacinato kale was crispy and the curly kale was a little softer (which I really liked). So please note that the different types of kale cook differently and you should watch your oven after 10 min until you have perfected your chip.
