Ingredients
  • 1 bunch kale leaves, destemmed
  • 1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
  2. Remove the thick stems from the leaves and then tear the leaves into medium size pieces. Wash and dry the leaves thoroughly so that they don’t get soggy in the oven.
  3. Add the kale leaves and oil to a large bowl and massage the oil into the leaves until they are completely coated. Sprinkle in the parmesan and salt and toss to combine.
  4. On a foil lined sheet pan, spead the kale in a thin layer and bake for about 25 minutes. Use 2 sheet pans if needed. Be sure to check the kale about 10 to 12 minutes into the cooking process. Kale can burn very easily. You can also turn your sheet pan mid-way through cooking.
  5. Cool the kale for about 3 minutes and serve.
Recipe Notes

Nutrition Nugget:  Vegans are often lacking in Vitamin B-12 because this nutrient is primarily found in animal products. One tip for vegans is to sprinkle some nutritional yeast, which contains vitamin B-12, on the kale before baking to help boost their vitamin B-12 intake. Nutritional yeast is a great vegan substitute for Parmesan cheese.

Chef’s Note:  There are so many fun spices you can add to kale to kick up the flavor. The recipe we have provided is basic and probably more kid-friendly. However, you could split the batch and have a more adult version with spices like garlic powder, chili powder, cayenne pepper, smoked paprika, and/or onion powder.

Make Ahead:  Kale chips can be made 1 day ahead and stored in a plastic container. Re-crisp them at 275 degrees F or just eat them at room temperature.

Kid-Friendly:  Kale chips are not just for dinner. They are a nutritious snack for your kids so keep them around the house for those late afternoon nibbles!

Simplify It: No time to cut and clean? No problem. Buy a pre-washed bag of kale leaves and skip step 2 of the recipe.
