  • 1 - 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 head of Kale
  • Sea salt to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees F.
  2. Thoroughly wash and dry the kale. (Kids love to use salad spinners, but I prefer sandwiching the individual leaves between paper towels)
  3. Remove the tough ribs from the kale leaves and tear the leaves into pieces, approximately the size of the palm of your child's hand. Place torn leaves in a large bowl.
  4. When all the leaves are in the bowl, add olive oil 1/2 tablespoon at a time, gently tossing to ensure that the leaves are fully covered, but not too damp.
  5. Sprinkle generously with sea salt and gently toss again.
  6. Spread kale leaves in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, turning leaves over after 10 minutes.
  7. When chips are crispy, remove from oven and let cool before eating.
