kale chips

Like the cooks at Denny’s, I sometimes find myself with some extra kale in the fridge. And unlike the cooks at Denny’s I want to do more with it than garnish eggs. I had been meaning to make kale chips for a few years, but was a little nervous. Why? I’m not sure, I like kale on its own, I like spinach in smoothies and I certainly don’t mind trying new things. The only problem?  Not having enough. I’ll need to use two bunches of kale in the future to ensure I have enough of this healthy snack.

Kale Chips

  • 1 bunch kale, cut into 2×2 inch squares
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • salt, pepper, nutritional yeast and red pepper flakes

Pre-heat oven to 375° F. Toss kale with olive oil and season as desired. I did a plain batch with salt and pepper and a batch with nutritional yeast and red pepper flakes. Bake for 10 minutes until kale is crisp.

    I’ve never had Kale. Does it taste like spinach? I’m not a big spinach fan.

    I’ve seen these Kale chips all over the internet but haven’t worked up the nerve to try them. I’m getting close!

      I don’t think it tastes like spinach but it does have kind of an earthy flavor. I also had it in a restaurant where it was sauteed with lemon and olive oil, that would be a good way to try it too!

    I have been wanting to make these too – have seen a bunch of different recipes and always been a little scared. I love kale, so I really don’t know why I haven’t worked up the nerve yet. The nutritional yeast is a great idea. Thanks!

    I’m really open to trying any kind of food and I love a ton of different things, but I just CANNOT bring myself to like kale. I’ve tried it in salads and smoothies, I’ve tried making kale chips like these ones, and I’ve tried steaming it- all to no avail! I guess some things we just don’t like. Ah well.

    On the other hand, I ADORE both nutritional yeast and red pepper flakes :D
