This quick and easy recipe brings an Asian-inspired twist to kale chips, making for a deliciously healthy snack. With only four ingredients and less than an hour to make, this treat is one you don't want to miss out on. Can we get a kale yeah?!

Serves: 4
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 bunch curly kale
  • 5 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons white miso
  • 1 tablespoon white sesame seeds

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Line 2 rimmed baking pans with parchment paper. Remove stems from kale; roughly cut kale leaves into large pieces. Divide kale leaves between prepared baking pans.

2. In small bowl, whisk together olive oil and miso (you may have to whisk 2-3 minutes to get the ingredients to come together). 

3. Pour oil mixture over kale; use your hands to rub mixture into kale leaves. Massage leaves 1 - 2 minutes or until each leaf is coated in oil mixture. 

4. Transfer to oven; bake 10 minutes. Turn and rotate baking pans between upper and lower oven racks; bake 10 to 12 minutes longer or until kale leaves are crisp. Remove pans from oven; sprinkle kale chips with sesame seeds. Let kale chips stand on pans 5 minutes before serving. Kale chips are best eaten right after they are made.
