I personally love kale chips but not everybody is as keen. You will either love or hate them. Try it for yourself :)

It's not difficult to make kale chips. However, I was struggling when baking them, as they got burned a couple of times. I figured out you have to rather dry them than bake them. Here is how I did it:
- Preheat the oven to low, 100 C / 212 F.
- Wash the kale thoroughly and make sure you drain it completely (paper towel works best). If you don't dry it enough, it will get soggy. Remove the stems and tear or chop into large-bite-sized pieces. Don't make them too small, they'll shrink a bit while baking.
- Place the teared kale into a bowl and add a pinch o salt and olive oil. Mix well with hands to allow the oil everywhere. If you don't want to get messy, simply place the kale into a plastic bag, add the seasoning and shake well.
- Add half of the grated Parmesan cheese and mix well. Place on a baking sheet lined with baking paper and put in the oven. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until crispy, checking frequently. Remove from the oven and when still hot, sprinkle with the rest of the Parmesan cheese.
- Place on a serving plate and enjoy!
Other possible seasonings I tried (for the same amount of kale):
- Basic (salt, 1-2 tbsp olive oil)
- Cinnamon-spiced (1 tsp cinnamon, 1-2 tbsp Erythritol, 1-2 tbsp melted coconut oil)
- Garlic (1 tbs garlic powder or 2 cloves mashed garlic, salt, 1-2 tbsp olive oil)
- Salt & vinegar (1 tbsp balsamic vinegar, salt, 1-2 tbsp olive oil)
