Easy Kale Chips Recipe

&ldquoKale Chips are Great&rdquo I kept hearing&hellip&hellip&rdquoyeah right&rdquo I thought. Well, I&rsquom not one to judge. We are trying to be smarter snackers, and my kids like those little packages of dried seaweed so I thought I&rsquod try it. At $3 a bag I thought I&rsquod try to make them myself. What do you know, we loved them!! Here is our easy Kale Chips recipe for you to become a believer too! (originally published 3/15)

I heard from a few people years ago how good kale chips were and like some of you my face cringed and thought &ldquono way!&rdquo&hellip..then I got curious.

  • I bought a bunch of kale at the store
  • I brought it home
  • Rinsed all the leaves off really good and put them all out on a paper towel to dry (needed to be really dry).
  • I even left them for a few hours to make sure there wasn&rsquot any moisture left
  • I cut the middle rib off each piece (that wouldn&rsquot be tasty) and ripped the leaves into larger bite size pieces
  • Then I got to seasoning
    • I use Lawry&rsquos seasoning for just about everything so I used that with my olive oil
      • Later on I experimented with Ranch dry seasoning and that came out great too, shared below.

      Kale is a tricky vegetable. If prepared wrong you won&rsquot like it&hellipand it might detract you from ever trying it again. It is VERY tough if not steamed, cooked, or baked (air fryer kale chips are amazing too). There are different kinds of kale and they are quite different in their thickness and taste.

      The best kale for kale chips is curly kale, in my opinion of course. The leaves are thinner with a lighter taste than other varieties.
