Oven Roasted Kale Chips

Prep and cook time: 30 minutes
Serves 4

  • 1 bunch kale (the curly-leaf variety works best for this recipe)
  • 1/8 cup avocado oil or coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon good quality salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of 1-2 seasonings of your choice:
  • Ground black pepper to taste
  • Nutritional yeast flakes 
  • Garlic powder
  • Red chili flakes
  • Curry powder
  • Italian herbs

Place a large, shallow roasting pan or sheet pan in the oven and preheat to 375 degrees.

Rinse kale, and dry completely. Remove stems, and cut into pieces approximately 3 inches wide. In a large bowl, use your hands to combine
the kale with the next 3 ingredients, plus seasonings. Season to taste, coating kale evenly.

When the oven is up to temperature, carefully put the kale into the hot pan, spreading it out into one layer. It will sizzle. Roast in the oven for 10 minutes and then gently stir or turn the leaves. Continue roasting another 5-7 minutes until kale is crisp and dry, but not too brown. Some leaves may be chewy instead of crisp. Serve immediately.
