Crunchy Kale Chips Recipe - Veggies Your Kids Will Love
This Homemade Kale Chips Recipe is a great healthy alternative to store-bought chips - so good that anytime I make them they are gone in a flash!
- 7 cups kale
- 2-4 Tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 tsp salt (or to taste. Coarse salt can also be used.)
Wash kale thoroughly.
Remove thick stems from kale (I chop the stems and saute them well to avoid waste).
Chop or tear kale leaves into large pieces.
Place kale pieces into a large bowl.
Add olive oil and mix to coat.
Add salt and mix to coat
Spread kale in a not-too-thick layer on dehydrator trays (or cookie sheets if using an oven).
Place trays in dehydrator and dehydrate until crispy dry. (I dry these at about 125 degrees F and they take about 2½ hours.)
Store in airtight containers (I use both plastic containers and bags, though be careful with the bags as these will crush easily).
Hide from kids because these can really be quite addictive :-)!
