Directions

Preheat the oven to 300F or 150C.

Tear the kale into medium sized pieces and wash thoroughly. Make sure to dry completely with either a salad spinner or between two kitchen towels.

Once the kale is dry place in a bowl and toss with seasonings and oil until each piece is fully coated. Place in a single layer on a prepared baking sheet. Place in the oven and allow to cook for 10 minutes, be sure to keep an eye to ensure they do not burn. Depending on the size of your pieces they may need an additional minute or two of cook time.

Kale chips do not keep their crispiness for long and are best enjoyed hot straight from the oven. Enjoy! ❤
