5 star (1 rating)

Ingredients

  • 4 cups chard leaves, from about 1 bunch
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 pinch of salt and pepper
  • Optional garlic powder, nutritional yeast, lemon juice

Instructions 

  • Wash and dry chard leaves: Fill a large mixing bowl with cold water and submerge chard leaves for a few minutes, stirring or moving the leaves around with your hands to make sure as much dirt is removed as possible. Next, remove the leaves from the water and use a salad spinner to remove water and put into a bowl or lay flat to dry (about 15 minutes).
  • Preheat oven and prep chard: Preheat the oven to 400° F (200° C). Lightly oil a sheet pan with 2 teaspoons of the oil, then add dry chard leaves and remaining 2 teaspoons olive and, using your hands, massage the greens to coat them completely in oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and dd any additional desired spices, like a sprinkle of garlic powder, nutritional yeast, or a sprinkle of lemon juice.
  • Bake chard leaves: Place the baking sheet into the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes, flipping the leaves halfway through baking so they get crispy on all sides. Once they're completely crispy, remove from the oven and eat immediately for best flavor. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Tools needed: mixing bowl, baking sheet, spatula
  • Prep ahead: Wash and dry chard leaves up to three days ahead of time so they are ready to prep for baking when your snack craving hits.
  • Leftovers and storage: While the flavor and crispiness is best when eaten right after baking, you can store leftover chard chips in an airtight container on the counter for up to two days.
  • Nutrition notes: This recipe made as written is plant-based, gluten-free, nut-free, and is a healthier alternative to traditional chips and crisps.
