Baked Kale Chips

Kale Chips

Described by some as “addictive”, these veggie-based chips have the same texture as potato chips, without the grease and fat.  Use just a little bit of kosher or sea salt, and season to taste with a dash of red pepper flakes—then bake and enjoy!

1 pound fresh kale
1 tablespoon Extra Virgin olive oil
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
Red pepper flakes (optional)
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Prepare the kale for baking by using a sharp knife to remove the leaves from the thick stems; tear the leaves into bite-sized pieces.
  • Wash and pat dry the kale. Drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle generously with the salt and pepper. Add a few sprinkles of red pepper flakes.
  • Bake until the edges brown but are not burnt, between 12 to 18 minutes.
