I’ve got a busy week of cooking ahead of me, but have wanted to share my very favorite kale chips recipe for the past few weeks, so that’s what I’m doing today!
Kale chips are super easy to make and very addictive! They’re available at the grocery store but are expensive and I don’t think they’re as good as homemade, plus I can buy a three pound bag of kale for about $2 at the local Wal-Mart, this means LOTS of kale chips! I’ve tried several different kinds of kale chips and have burned my fair share in the process! This recipe is by far my favorite, I can eat the whole batch in one sitting. I don’t advise doing so however, as these are high in fat.
- 2-3 cups of kale, ribs removed, ripped into pieces, washed and dried
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon water
- 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
- 1 teaspoon dried chives
- 1 teaspoon dried parsley
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon dried dill
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Place kale pieces on a baking tray. Pour the spice blend all over kale and rub into kale pieces. No need for perfection here! Once the kale is nicely coated with the spice mixture, place baking pan into oven.
Bake at 250°F for 50 minutes. Check the kale starting around 30-40 minutes, you don’t want blackened chips! Every oven is different, so until you know how long your chips will take, better safe than sorry!
These are delicious eaten right off the baking pan. They should be eaten the same day you make them, they don’t stay crispy/crunchy. I’ve tried to dry them out really well in the oven and placed them in a container single layer, and they still got mushy and were gross the next day.
