Hands-On time 8 mins
Total time 23 mins
Yield

Serves 4 (serving size: 1 cup)

These chips are crispy, salty, and so easy to make. Opt for them instead of potato chips next time you're craving a salty snack. For a different flavor, try sprinkling the kale with grated Parmesan, red pepper flakes, or sweet paprika before baking.

Ingredients

  • 10 1/2 ounces trimmed curly kale, torn into 2-inch pieces (about 14 cups)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.

  2. Rinse kale; drain well, and pat dry with paper towels. Place in a large bowl. Drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt. Toss well. Place kale in a single layer on 3 (16 x 13–inch) baking sheets.

  3. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes. (Watch closely to prevent leaves from burning.) Cool completely. Store in an airtight container.

  4. Kids Can Help: Once you've rinsed the kale, kids can help dry it and then drizzle with olive oil and toss to coat.
