Parmesan Kale Chips
I love kale chips! They are a nutritious, delicious, guilt-free snack, and they are extremely easy to make. I happen to like my chips straight up with a dash of salt, but it’s always nice to mix it up – and it may just get the most unsuspecting people to love kale!
Parmesan Kale Chips Recipe
1 bunch of Organic Kale (remember that Kale is on the "dirty dozen
" list, so this is an important one to buy organic!)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Parmesan Cheese (finely grated or "shake" style)
A Rack - An oven safe drying rack
works beautifully, but a cookie sheet will do too.
Option: For those avoiding dairy, nutritional yeast flakes
can be used in place of the Parmesan.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Tear your kale into bite sized pieces - I actually like mine a bit bigger than bite sized.
Thoroughly wash and pat dry your kale - you can let it air dry if you have the time.
Toss your pieces of kale with 1-2 tbs of olive oil, salt (1/4 tsp, or to taste) and Parmesan cheese (2 tbs, or to taste) and place in a single layer onto a baking sheet.
Bake on rack until the edges of most of the chips are a bit browned. Set your timer to 5 minutes and go from there - on an oven safe drying rack like this
mine usually take around 6-7 minutes but I like to keep an eye on them from around the 5 minute mark.
Enjoy, and feel free to get creative by adding other seasonings to your chips!
