Kale chips are the rave and they’re popping up at health food stores everywhere. At $4+ dollars per bag, they’re not cheap so why not learn to make your own? Prep time = 5 minutes and bake time = 20 minutes. I’ve read the ingredients on store-bought varieties and also checked out a few popular kale chip recipes. That said, here’s my personal favorite:
Easy Recipe: Kale Chips Anyone Can Make
- Huge bunch of kale (rinse, drain & chop into medium-sized pieces)
- 2-3 TBL nutritional yeast (in the spice aisle of your favorite health food store). Nutritional yeast will add vitamins/minerals to your chips and also gives it a “cheesy” flavor.
- Sea salt, for sprinkling
- Optional – dash of cayenne pepper
- 1 TBL sesame or olive oil
Toss everything in a big bowl to evenly coat. Spread kale on baking sheet (you might need to use two) and bake at 325 degrees for 20 minutes, slightly longer for crispier chips. Rotate sheets about halfway through. Let cool/dry completely before storing in airtight container, and don’t pile the chips or they will get really soggy. These are best enjoyed right away when they’re right out of the oven but will keep for a few days.
