How to Make Kale Chips
First preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grab your bunch of kale, making sure the leaves and stems are removed. Wash and dry the kale well.
Cut it into pieces about 3 inches long. Add a piece of parchment paper to the cookie sheet and place the kale pieces on top. Drizzle the kale with olive oil and sprinkle with a teaspoon of garlic salt.
tip: The fresher the kale, the better the chips.Also, be sure to wash completely Dry the kale before adding the oil and seasoning.
Roast the kale in the oven for 10-12 minutes. The kale is done when the edges are golden brown. Take it out of the oven, let them cool for a few minutes, then transfer to a bowl for snacking!
Store, Tip + Replace
Store roasted kale chips in an airtight container or bag in room temperature. They will last up to a week of freshness and crunch.
Can you roast kale chips instead of roasting? Roasting may burn them because the heat will cook them too quickly. It’s best to bake kale chips for an even crunch and bake on top of each chip.
change taste Add different spices or ingredients to this recipe. A few drops of parmesan cheese would be delicious! Add a little black pepper to taste. Or lemon zest for more citrus flavor.
To use a food dehydrator: You can also use a food dehydrator to make kale chips if you don’t want to heat the oven. The texture is slightly different than baked in the oven, but still delicious and healthy. Drying time will vary based on leaf size and temperature settings. Typically, they dry in 3-5 hours at a 125°F setting. Check your owner’s manual for more specific temperatures and times.
