Kale Chips–Possibly the Easiest Thing to Make, EVER

I know you.  You’re the person who bought Kale Chips the other day at Whole Foods, or wherever you shop, that tries to swindle you out of $5.00 for something that costs less than $2.00 to make.

Don’t buy Kale Chips.  Seriously.  You’re killing me.

Kale Chips

1 head of curly kale (green or red)

olive oil

nutritional yeast flakes or just plain ol’ salt and pepper

a bowl

an oven

a cookie sheet

a brain


You get the picture…

Remove stems (about 4 inches) and rinse

Remove stems (about 4 inches) and rinse

Toss with olive oil, S&P or NYF

Coat leaves

Arrange on cookie sheet

Lay those leaves out!


Place in bowl to eat

Bake at 350 for, oh, maybe 15 mins.  I never keep track.  I’m a horrible cook.

And don’t let me see you buying Kale Chips from the store–ever again!

* A couple notes * you can pull apart the leaves to make small chips, but it’s totally up to you whether you want to remove the rest of the stem that runs through the middle of the leaf.  When these bake, they dehydrate so much, it probably isn’t worth the work.
