I had received this recipe over a year ago from my Naturopath, but I had been hesitant to try it – I mean, who eats kale chips? I wasn’t even sure I liked kale as a vegetable let alone as chips. One of my friends had tried this recipe and said they were “delish”, but I was still hesitant to make them. Now that we are doing the Waterloo Cleanse this week I figured I would give them a try so that we would have something to snack on.
I think I’ll need to go buy another head of kale because we don’t start the cleanse for a few more days and we are well into the chips already. You have to try them for yourself to really understand how great these little chips are, and once you do, I can assure you that you won’t be disappointed.
1 (or more) head kale – Now that I have made this I recommend at least 2 heads of kale
1 tbsp. olive oil
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
Sea salt to taste
1-2 tbsp. nutritional yeast (optional) I went with 2 tbsp. of the nutritional yeast.
Preheat oven to 375F.
Mix all ingredients except kale in a small bowl, set aside. Tear leaves away from tough stalks and break into pieces up to 2 inches in length. Wash well, and dry thoroughly (a salad spinner will help here).
In a large bowl, toss kale pieces with the seasoned oil mixture. Spread out on several cookie sheets and bake for 10 – 15 minutes, turning several times until kale starts to brown slightly and crisp. I ended up turning after 5 minutes and then only cooking for 3 more minutes. The length of time really depends on your oven.
Serve like potato chips!
