Kale Chips

A healthy tasty chip… yep, they exist. Easier to make than homemade potato chips and much better for you. Very simple to make and will satisfy that need for something salty and crunchy. I recommend using dinosaur kale or any other type of curly kale (it has a thicker texture than the type you use to saute, so it won’t brown as quick or burn.)

Cooking time can vary depending on how hot your oven is. Mine took a bit longer than others had recommended, so if the kale is not crunchy or browned on the edges after 10 minutes, leave it in, but keep your eye on it.

Kale Chips

1 bunch of dinosaur or other curly kale
2-3 Tbs. olive oil
1 Tbs. garlic powder
2 tsp. cayenne pepper (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Slice or tear kale into chip size pieces (removing the stemmed portion if you like)
3. Place kale in a bowl and drizzle with olive oil
4. Sprinkle with garlic powder, salt, pepper and the cayenne pepper if you want it spicy
5. Toss the kale a few times and spread it on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper or foil
6. Bake for 10 minutes or until edges are brown and kale is crispy
