Easy Kale Chip Recipe

Kale chips are a miracle food not only are they cheap, healthy, and easy, they’re also delicious!  This is a great recipe to have in your repertoire.


Kale Chips


Kale (2 cups per serving)
Oil (I prefer olive)
Garlic Salt


Step 1: Rinse your kale and dry it as much as possible as this will allow it to get crisper when cooked.

Step 2: Remove all spines of the kale leaves.

Step 3: Coat cookie tray with layer of kale.  The more densely packed, the longer the kale will need in the oven.


Step 4: Coat kale with olive oil.  I used my Misto which I love, but you can also use any oil in an aerosol can.


Step 5: Sprinkle with garlic salt.


Step 6: Cook in 350° oven for 20 minutes or until crispy.


These chips are best eaten fresh from the oven, but will last longer in an air-tight container.
