Another very important tip for this recipe is to lay kale leaves in a single layer on the baking sheet, if not the kale will steam instead of becoming crispy. Keep your eyes on them since some pieces of kale can bake faster than others. If it happens, remove the kale leaves that are ready and put the rest in the oven for 2-3 minutes more. In case you don’t eat everything at the same day, you can put them away in a sealed glass container with rice in the bottom. The rice will avoid the kale chips from becoming soggy.
