I love kale chips!! They are crunchy, tasty, and satisfy that salt and “chip” craving that we sometimes get.
Store bought ones can be great, but you need to watch out for the sugar content. Yes really!!! Store bought kale chips often have sugar added! They are also expensive, so I have created this quick and easy recipe for you to make at home with that bunch of kale that is sitting in your crisper drawer.
This one is deliciously plain and simple. If you would like to try a “cheesy” version, check out this recipe for Cheesy Kale Chips.
Kale is an important part of the nutrient-dense cruciferous vegetable family. If you haven’t tried this vegetable before, these kale chips are a great place to start. After that, you can branch out and try this kale blueberry salad that is popular in our house.
One of the things I love about this vegetable is its anti-inflammatory benefits. It keeps me feeling awesome!!
Naked Kale Chips
If you like salty chips, I have a way better alternative for you. These are delicious, quick to make and even quicker to eat!
- 1 bunch kale washed, dried and stems removed
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 dash sea salt
- 2 dashes garlic powder
Preheat oven to 300 degrees and place a sheet of parchment on a baking sheet.
Take the washed and dried kale and rip into "chip" sized pieces and place in a large bowl.
Drizzle with olive oil, salt, and garlic powder. Mix until the kale pieces are evenly coated.
Place kale onto prepared sheet in an even layer. Bake for 10 minutes.
Flip the kale onto the other side and bake for another 10 minutes until the edges just start turning brown. Careful not to overcook!
Serve and Enjoy!
Tip: You can use any spice, so try onion powder, paprika or even turmeric!
