Kale Chips in 5 Easy Steps

Making kale chips is easier than you think

Kale Chips in 5 Easy Steps
Once they have cooled, store your homemade kale chips in an air-tight container at room temperature.

Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper or a non-stick silicone mat. If you don’t have either, lightly spray the cooking sheet with non-stick cooking spray or coat it with a thin layer of oil.

Wash the kale leaves and pat them dry with a paper towel. Then, tear the leaves into chip-sized pieces, discarding the thick stems.

Drizzle the torn-up pieces of kale with a good quality extra-virgin olive oil (or another oil that you like the taste of) and toss them until they are lightly coated in the oil.

Lay the kale chips on the sheet pan and sprinkle them with salt. If you want to make flavored chips, you can sprinkle the pieces of kale with spices as well.

Bake the kale chips in the oven until they just start to crisp (but before they turn brown) about 15 minutes, turning them over once halfway through their cook time.
