  • Kale
  • Olive oil
  • Salt to taste
  • Garlic powder to taste (not pictured here)
  • Nutritional yeast to taste (not pictured here)


  1. Remove most of tough portion of stems
  2. Dribble oil over kale and using your hands, massage it onto both sides of all leaves.  This will just take 30-60 seconds.
  3. Spread kale in a mostly single layer on a large baking sheet or pizza sheet
  4. Sprinkle with salt, garlic powder and nutritional yeast
  5. Bake at 225 for 30 minutes, then check for areas of moistness – shift kale chips around if needed for even drying
  6. Turn oven off once mostly dry and allow to slowly finish drying with door closed

Tips: Try adding a spritz of lemon juice or other powdered herbs for variety before baking.  To keep kale from getting stale/moist, store in an airtight container.  Dried kale can be crumbled into soups, added as a crunchy salad topper or enjoyed straight up!
