Sea Salt Kale Chips

Kale chips have been all the rage for the past few years, with good reason. They are easy to make and totally delicious. No, they are nothing like potato chips but they are definitely a perfect alternative especially when they're seasoned with salt. They are great by themselves and added to other dishes.

Since this recipe just makes basic kale chips, these go great on salads, soups, or any dish where you would put a crouton on to get a crispy crunch. It's hard to describe the taste--I think it's savory.


- 1 bunch of Kale
- 1 tbsp Olive Oil
- 2 tsp Sea Salt

1. Set oven to 350.
2. Wash kale, shake excess water off. No need to dry.
3. Using your hands or a knife remove the leaves from the stems and tear the leaves into bite sized pieces.
4. Place kale on cookie sheet and drizzle with olive oil and toss with your hands and thoroughly coat kale. The more you massage the olive oil into the leaves so that they are completely coated the more evenly they will cook and taste. 
5. Place kale in a single layer and sprinkle salt.
6. Place in oven for 10 to 20 minutes or until edges start to brown. Time dependent on how big of a bunch you have.
7. Add more salt to taste.
