Description

If you are looking for a way to use lacinato kale (sometimes called dinosaur kale or Tuscan kale) then I have a great recipe to share with you today! This easy baked Kale Chip recipe is made with only a few ingredients and takes very little prep time to make! It makes a great crunchy and healthy snack for kids and adults alike!


Scale

Ingredients

1 large bunch lacinato kale

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

¼  teaspoon salt, or to taste


Instructions

  1. Arrange oven racks to evenly space them in the upper and lower third of the oven. Preheat the oven to 325’F.
  2. Remove and discard thick ribs and stems of kale. Tear or chop into bite-size pieces. Rinse and spin dry in a salad spinner.
  3. Toss kale with oil and salt using clean hands. Spread out evenly onto two large, rimmed baking sheets. 
  4. Bake, turning once halfway through, until crispy, about 18 minutes. Season with additional salt if desired.

Notes

One bunch of kale yields about 8 cups leaves with the ribs removed and torn.

Cooked kale chips can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature up to 3 days. Note that chips that were not completely crispy will become even less so if stored this way.
