Making your own kale chips is much cheaper than buying packaged products. And they’re a lot healthier than potato chips. You can season them in all sorts of ways or keep it simple and just sprinkle them with a little sea salt.
Here are the basics:
- Wash and thoroughly dry the kale leaves. Then remove any thick stems and tear the leaves into large pieces (they will shrink down).
- Toss or spray the kale pieces with olive oil, and, if desired, sprinkle with a little salt, garlic powder, cayenne, or other seasonings. Make sure they are evenly coated.
- Spread the kale in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake in an oven preheated to 375°F until crisp, about 10 to 15 minutes, keeping an eye on them so they don’t burn.
- Serve them with sandwiches or soups, crumbled over salads, or as a snack on their own.
