How to Make This Recipe
Wash and dry the kale. Remove the stems and break 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.
How Long Do They Last?
These will last for about a week in an airtight container in the pantry.
Why Are My Kale Chips Not Crispy?
If your kale chips aren't crispy, you need to bake them longer.
How Do You Keep Kale Chips Crispy?
If you store kale chips in an airtight container they'll stay crispy. Do NOT put them in the fridge.
Other Ways To Use Nutritional Yeast
I use nutritional yeast anywhere I want a cheesy flavor.
For the new year add these kale chips to your repertoire!
