Crispy Kale Chips

The recipe only has 2 ingredients, fresh kale and Olive Oil spray.  You will need an Air Fryer and Olive Oil Mister or Avocado Oil Mister

Start by washing and drying your kale. Your recipe will turn out the best if you either spin the kale dry in a salad spinner or if you buy them prewashed.

 

Kale Chips recipe Tenderize Kale

Massage the kale and remove the leaves from the stems. 

You can tenderize your kale chips and make them more delicious with this really easy method. You massage kale by tearing them off the kale stalk and massage the kale leaves with your fingers. The leaves will soften a bit and turn a more vibrant green.  This helps get the bitterness out of the leaf.

Removing the leaves from the kale chips makes them crispier when you bake them. The stalks have more water in them and will prevent the leaves from turning flakey

Set the air fryer to 400 degrees F for 12 minutes.

Add the Kale into the air fryer.

Lightly spray the Kale with the Olive Oil Mister or Avocado Oil Mister.
