Kale Chips

Serving Size: 4
Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 20 mins


½ lb.                Kale (Preferably Lacinato Kale)
¼ cup              Lemon Flavored Olive Oil (more if needed)
1/4 - 1/2 cup   Parmesan Cheese, finely grated

Black Pepper (Finely ground)
Garlic Powder
Onion Powder



  1. Be sure Kale is fresh and crisp; wash thoroughly in cold water
  2. Using a sharp knife, cut along the spine (main stem) on either side to the tip. This results in two long strips. Cut each strip in half at a 90-degree angle to the original cut, making 4 pieces. Dry pieces of Kale by blotting each piece with paper towels.
  3. Rub olive oil on pieces of Kale (both sides)
  4. Place Kale pieces on an aluminum foil -covered baking sheet and place in a pre-heated 275 degree F oven for 12 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese on top of each leaf, garlic and onion powder; salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Return to oven for approximately 12 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and allow to cool down before eating.
