Mix oil, nutritional yeast, and salt. Toss kale in the mixture and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake until crispy.
Should I Remove The Stems?
Yes, you'll want to remove the stems, including the center rib. They are tough and chewy.
How to Remove The Stems
Using a knife, cut right next to the stem on both sides. You can also hold the leaf in your hand and strip the leaves off away from you.

You can use any variety of kale you want. I prefer any of the curly varieties.
How Long Do They Last?
These will last for about a week in an airtight container in the pantry.

If your kale chips aren't crispy, you need to bake them longer.
