This is a great recipe for kids if you want them to eat their veggies. They won't even realize they are eating something that's actually good for them! The kale is so crispy that it practically melts in your mouth...well, almost. I decided to sprinkle some onion powder over the kale chips to bring additional flavor. We really enjoyed them that way. Feel free to experiment with different seasonings and spices.... Eat it as a snack... or use it as a garnish for soups, creamy dishes, fish etc.
"I've made these MANY times because its so delicious and addicting! I just season mine with olive oil, kosher salt and a little slash of apple cider vinegar! These taste very similar to broccoli. Such a healthy snack...and I love the way they melt in your mouth! I added my photo!"
Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
Wash kale greens and remove the stems.
Blot very dry using a kitchen towel or paper towel. Break up kale in somewhat smaller pieces. Add about 1 TBS of oil (you really don't need more). Add a pinch of kosher salt, chile flakes and toss to coat. Arrange a baking rack on top of a cookie sheet. Spread the kale in an even layer on the baking rack. Try not to overlap the pieces. Bake at 250 degrees for about 25 minutes. Toss about halfway through.... (I really didn't do this). If the kale is still limp, leave it in the oven a bit more until it crisps up. The kale will darken a bit in color and shrink dramatically. Sprinkle more salt if needed. Sprinkle with onion powder, chile flakes or any other seasoning you prefer.
The result is a crispy and crunchy snack that's good for you (minus the salt:)).
Maxstead 2y agoGreat recipe!! I've made this many times and always use different seasonings, try all the popcorn seasonings, my kids favourite is the salt and vinegar.
CYAG 2y agoEasy go to snack..but I do it at higher heat - 325 x 15 min. Good with garlic powder as well as onion. Thanks

JessicaHope 2y agoI did exactly what you said but mine burnt after 10 minutes, they went black and tasted like they were burnt. Next time I'll be lowering my time and the oven temperature.
