Ingredients:

  • 5 ounces raw kale, washed and dried (about 6 cups) tough stems removed, if desired. Use bagged, chopped kale if desired.
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese or more to taste

Instructions:

If you’re using whole kale leaves, chop or slice the kale into about 2-inch pieces. Place the kale in a mixing bowl. Pour the olive oil over, and sprinkle with salt and garlic powder.

Gently toss the kale and massage the salt and garlic powder into the kale. Make sure everything is coated with the oil.

Place the kale into the air fryer basket. Set the temperature to 300 °F and the timer for 9 minutes. Open the air fryer and toss the kale with tongs after about 5 minutes. Check it as it gets close to the finishing point to make sure it’s not overcooked.

Empty the cooked kale chips into the mixing bowl, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and let cool for about 2 minutes.
