- 1 bunch of kale
- 2 tsp of olive oil
- ¼-1/2 tsp of salt
- ½ - 1 tbsp nutritional yeast (optional)
- Pre-heat oven to 350 °F
- Wash and dry the kale really well. If the kale is still wet it will not become crispy upon baking.
- Remove the stem from each kale leaf and rip or cut the leaves into bite size pieces.
- Place the kale in a large bowl and toss with olive oil and salt.
- Spread the kale out on 1-2 baking sheet(s). Do not to overlap any of the leaves because they will steam rather than bake and will not turn crispy.
- Sprinkle nutritional yeast over kale pieces, if desired.
- Put in the oven for 7 minutes (if you are using 2 baking sheets then after 7 minutes take the top sheet out of oven and move bottom sheet up to top rack for 1 more minute.
Note: times may vary due to oven so keep an eye on the kale during baking. Leaves should be crunchy, but be sure to remove them before they start to burn.
