Preheat your oven to a toasty 275°F (135°C). While it's warming up, let's prepare our kale. Wash and thoroughly dry the kale leaves. We want them to be as dry as possible for that extra crispiness.
Now, let's remove those tough center stalks from the kale leaves. You want to end up with lovely bite-sized pieces, roughly around 2 inches each.
In a large bowl, gently toss the kale pieces with a tablespoon of olive oil. The key here is not to drench them; a light coating will do the trick.
Time to get these green gems ready for their transformation. Lay the kale pieces out on a baking dish, making sure they have some space. We want them to crisp up evenly.
A touch of sea salt is all they need to bring out their fantastic flavors. Sprinkle a bit over the kale.
Now, into the preheated oven they go. Bake for around 15 minutes, but make sure to rotate them halfway through. We're aiming for that perfect crunch.
Once they're done, take them out of the oven, let them cool for a moment, and get ready to enjoy the satisfying sound of crispy kale chips!
These kale chips are not just a healthy snack; they're a snacking revelation. With minimal oil and a sprinkle of salt, they're a guilt-free delight. So, munch away, knowing you're treating your taste buds to something delicious and nutritious.
