By roasting kale in the oven until it's crispy and seasoned with your favorite herbs and spices, you end up with a snack that's just as addictive as potato chips, but without all the guilt.
And the best part is, making kale chips is super easy. All you need is a bunch of kale, some olive oil, and a few seasonings of your choice. From there, it's just a matter of baking the kale until it's nice and crispy. But don't just take our word for it.

- 25-121 large bunch of kale, tough stems removed, leaves cut/torn into pieces (about 16 cups)
- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and position racks in the upper third and center of the oven.
- If the kale is moist, thoroughly pat it dry with a clean dishtowel before transferring it to a large bowl. Salt and oil should be drizzled over the kale. To uniformly distribute the oil and salt on the kale leaves, knead them with your hands.
- Make sure to evenly distribute the kale leaves on 2 large rimmed baking sheets. Make the chips in batches if all of the kale does not fit.
- Bake for 8 to 12 minutes, rotating the pans from front to back and top to bottom halfway through until most of the leaves are crisp. (If only using one baking sheet, check after 8 minutes to avoid scorching.)
