A little searching on Pinterest and I saw that almost every post I came across was super easy and basically the same for plain Kale chips. After removing the large stem from the middle of the kale leaf, break down each leaf to chip sized pieces. Then put the kale into a bowl with 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil. Massage the oil into the leaves with your hands to evenly distribute. Finally sprinkle with a little salt.
The kale chips are baked in a single layer in an oven at 350 degrees for about 8 minutes. Once they are done baking, the cooling time is only a few minutes, and they are ready to eat.
One of the stores near my house often has kale on sale for 50 cents a bunch. Combine that with the small amount of effort it takes to prepare kale chips sure beats that $5 a bag price.
I can't say that kale chips are one of my new favorite things. They do have a nice crunch, and I felt better snacking on kale chips instead of potato chips, but I have not been craving them since making this batch. They are a tiny bit bitter, which I'm not a fan of. But, this is just a basic recipe. I'm going to try to make them again in a different flavor, maybe salt and vinegar. Back to Pinterest!
