Crispy Kale Chips

Crispy Kale Chips

Ingredients

  • 1 large bunch of kale (we like the curly kind)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • sea salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
  • Wash kale, remove the inner rib or stem, and tear into chip-size pieces. Make the pieces a little larger than you want the chips because they will shrink.
    The kale must be thoroughly dried. I ran it through a salad spinner, lay it out on paper towels for 5 minutes, and then run it through the spinner once more.
  • Put the kale pieces in a gallon plastic baggie and add the olive oil. “Massage” the kale to ensure that each piece has a coating of oil. Arrange the kale in a single layer on a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper (or you can place them right on the sheet). You may need to use more than one sheet or bake in batches.
  • Sprinkle with sea salt. Use a bit less than you think you need because the kale shrinks and the salt intensifies.
    Bake for about 20 minutes, until the kale is crisp and slightly browned.
