I have some other ideas on what to do with your kale chips. You know how we love toppings. We put toppings on soups, salads, and pretty much anything.
Here are a few more Super Food recipes:
- Quinoa Salad with Spinach
- Superfood Smoothie
- Black Bean Sweet Potato Quesadilla
- Kale Salad with Oranges
Well instead of loading your next salad or soup with croutons or another unhealthy topping, crumble some kale chips on top. White bean soup, pea soup, or even a crunchy Asian slaw would taste even better with these yummy additions.
Store-bought kale chips can be very expensive and have ingredients in them you may not want. Make your own and save money.
The baking process is a very important step. When baking veggies I love to use a Silpat baking mat – this keeps the veggies from sticking and burning and makes clean up a cinch. You also want to use a good, sturdy thin baking pan to place the Silpat on.

- 4 large leaves kale stems removed, washed and torn into large pieces
- 1-2 Tbl nut butter
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 2 tsp nutritional yeast

- Preheat oven to 300°F. Wash and dry the kale leaves thoroughly.

- Using clean hands, add the kale to the bowl and massage the nut butter mixture into the kale, then lay them out in a single layer on a baking sheet. You may need to use 2 sheets.
- Bake the chips for 10 minutes, rotate the pan and bake another 10 minutes, checking to see if they're getting brown. Don't overcook.
- Let them cool a few minutes before eating. They are quite delicate. They're crisp up as they cool.
