Kale Chips

My passing mention of kale chips in my most recent Harvest Monday post sparked some real appreciation for kale chips in the comments, so I've decided to share the easiest most basic kale chip recipe I know of.
Simple Kale Chips
1 bunch of Kale
olive oil
kosher salt
Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Remove kale leaves from stem and break into bite sized pieces. Wash and thoroughly dry the kale. Drizzle kale with olive oil, sprinkle on salt and toss briefly in a bowl. Bake on parchment lined cookie sheet for 10-12 minutes, until edges are brown but not burnt.

The kale chips in the photo were in the oven for just under 12 minutes and were perfect. different recipes call for varying amounts of olive oil and salt, but I prefer to eye it out.

Do you use any other seasoning on your kale chips??

I make them in my dehydrator. I'll blend up soaked cashews with italian seasoning and pour that over them. Then pop em in the dehydrator. Mad good!

I have never made them yet. I was going to this spring, but never got around to it. I was going to last fall and my kale was put back too much by the caterpillars. Some year it will happen. I'm sure of it.

Mike, I also make them in my dehydrator! They are more mellow tasting when dehydrated.
I like to add nutritional yeast to mine - gives them a cheesy flavor, and packs a nutritional punch with protein as well as vitamin B12!!
Hemp seeds are also a nice addition as well :)

I also make mine in the dehydrator, I like to use garlic and chilli or capsicum, they are so good! They never last long ;)
