Super Easy Kale Chips
Prep Time: 5 min
Total Time: 20 min
- 1 bunch kale (6-8oz), washed, thick ribs removed, torn into bite-sized pieces
- 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil

Preheat the oven to 350º. Combine the kale, oil and salt in a mixing bowl and massage the oil and salt into the kale with your hands to coat evenly. Place the kale in a single layer on a baking sheet (you may need two) and bake for 15-18 minutes, until crispy. Serve warm or room temperature.
You can also make this recipe in a food dehydrator for “raw” kale chips. Dehydrate at 115º 6-8 hours or until crispy.
