I love that I get more greens into my diet in a fun way. These Ranch Kale Chips are just that - a fun healthy snack.
Another fun healthy snack is my recipe for Pizza Flavored Popcorn.

- Wash and dry the kale. Remove the stems and break them into pieces.
- Mix oil, nutritional yeast, dried parsley, dried dill, onion powder, garlic powder, 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.
What Type of Kale Should I use?
You can use any variety of kale you want. I prefer any of the curly varieties.
If your kale chips aren't crispy, you need to bake them longer.
If you store kale chips in an airtight container they'll stay crispy. Do NOT put them in the fridge.
