Easy tasty kale chips recipe

Easy Kale Chips Recipe

I’m ashamed to admit that I’ve been buying those tiny yet expensive ($7!) bags of raw kale chips at Whole Foods. I know they’re ridiculously over priced for such a little bag of kale goodness, but they’re just so tasty and tempting. Especially when I need to bring a quick snack on an outing with friends. We all love them so.

Well, a friend encouraged me to make them from scratch at home and now that I’ve discovered just how easy (and CHEAP!) making kale chips can be, I doubt I’ll ever buy a bag from the store again.

I know the idea of kale chips may sound weird, but trust me — they are delicious and you must try them! Even our daughter loves them and UNTIL NOW she has had an aversion to dark leafy greens. (And you know that’s been killing me!)

Making kale chips is so simple, quick, and tasty. Here’s what you do.

Kale Chips

1 bunch kale – wash, dry fully, remove stems, and tear into 3 to 4 inch pieces
1/2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast (or Parmesan cheese)
Pinch of sea salt

To make them quickly:
Heat oven to 375 250 degrees. Mix vinegar and oil, pour over kale and toss to coat evenly. Sprinkle in cheese/yeast and salt. Toss again until kale is evenly coated. Spread in a single layer onto a baking sheet, and bake for approximately 15 20-30 minutes or until just crisp.

Enjoy them on their own or crumbled on top of quinoa, baked potatoes, pasta dishes or salads. This particular batch didn’t last ten minutes in our house. We all went to town.

  4. Thanks for sharing them today – these are DELICIOUS!!

  5. love these! thanks so much for posting. quick?: why do you show them cooking on parchment? they do fine straight on the cookie sheet, and it’s greener ; )

    • Very true! I am ashamed to admit that the only reason I use the parchment paper is for ease of cleaning! (i.e. I just toss the parchment paper into the compost bin and wipe down the cookie sheets.) I need to purchase some Silpat silicone baking mats and then I’ll definitely be more green!
