Kale chips are delicious don’t let their extreme healthfulness deter you from making this awesome, crunchy, salty snack for your next movie date or game night! If you are new to cooking green vegetables or if you’re looking for a new way to eat your veggies, this easy recipe is for you:
First, pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.
Cut away inner ribs from each kale leaf- curly kale works best as it is thicker and more substantial than the Lacinato variety. Use as much kale as is needed to cover your shallow baking tray; I usually make at least two large trays at a time. Tear the kale leaves into pieces- I make my pieces about the size of a large potato chip.
If necessary, wash torn kale pieces and spin dry in a salad spinner or dry with tea towels until they’re very dry. Bonus: if you grow your own kale or know the farmer that did, chances are you won’t need to wash it!
Spread the kale on your baking tray and drizzle with olive oil to coat and a couple of splashs of Fire Cider. Add salt and black pepper and work everything into the kale using your hands. Make sure the kale pieces are well covered on both sides with the olive oil mixture.
Spread the kale out evenly in one layer on the baking sheets and roast in the preheated oven until mostly crisp, up to 35 minutes. Season with more salt and eat immediately!
