Umami Kale Chips – Recipe

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

This recipe is for my sister – she just loves chips.  For New Years she gave up chips, so far, and I thought I would create something for her that had nice flavor, a slight crunch and a bit healthier.  I know many of us are a little burnt out on kale, but this recipe is terrific.

What works in this recipe is cooking the kale pieces slowly, so they don’t burn.  Rotating the sheet pan halfway through the cooking process is also important because the kale will cook more evenly. The seasonings in this recipe give the chips a rich umami flavor, hence the name.  I hope you will make a batch sis!




1 bunch kale, curly or purple

Bragg’s nutritional yeast

onion powder



olive oil


To Prepare:

1.  Preheat your oven to 300 degrees.  Remove the twist tie from your kale.
