Meatless Monday: Snack Time with Kale Chips

Goodbye, potato chips.  Hello, kale!  If you’re in the mood for something crunchy, bypass unnecessary junk food calories and bake a batch of organic kale chips.  Don’t be fooled into buying the $7 ready-made kale snacks at the grocery store.  They are incredibly easy to make at home and a fraction of the cost if you buy raw ingredients.  Add nutritional yeast to give it an extra health kick and cheesy taste.

Greenista’s Kale Chips
Serves 4
Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Baking Time: 25-30 minutes


Kale – two bundles, organic

Olive Oil – 2 tablespoons

Nutritional Yeast – 3 heaping tablespoons

Salt and Pepper – to taste

Recipe Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Wash kale and rip into bite-size chunks.  Put into large bowl.

Drizzle kale with olive oil and nutritional yeast.  Mix to incorporate all ingredients thoroughly.  Sprinkle salt and pepper.

Spread out kale pieces on baking sheet (use one or two sheets, depending on size).  Bake for 25-35 minutes, flipping kale after 15 minutes.  The longer you keep them in, the crispier they will be.

Remove from oven and allow to cool.  Homemade kale chips will last a few days, but are best fresh and out of the oven.  Store in cloth or plastic bag.
