Kale Chips

Preheat oven to 300° F.


1 bunch kale (any variety will work)

1 Tbsp olive oil

Sea Salt


Seasoning salt (I used Trader Joe's South African Smoke Seasoning Blend)

Crushed red pepper, if desired.


Rinse and dry the leaves.  With a sharp knife remove the stems and center rib of the leaf.  You can tear the leaves into pieces (fairly large pieces as it shrinks while baking) or keep them whole.  I left the leaves whole.


Toss the leaves with the olive oil and place on a baking sheet.  Sprinkle sea salt over the leaves.


Bake for 20 minutes.  You want the leaves to crisp up but not burn!


Remove the baking sheets from the oven and sprinkle with your choice of seasoning or crushed red pepper.  Cool.


Note:  My friend tells me that you can bake the chips at 250° F. or at 300° F. just keep an eye on them.  The baking time will vary by variety.
