Toss the oil, kale pieces, Ranch Seasoning, and nutritional yeast together in a medium-sized bowl, then dump the coated kale into the basket of your air fryer.
Cook on 370F for 4-5 minutes (do not preheat), shaking after 2 minutes. Eat immediately.
About the ranch seasoning and nutritional yeast: These are just flavoring suggestions. Feel free to check out the flavor variation ideas in the post above or use whatever seasonings strike your fancy!
About the kale stems: This recipe says to stem your kale, and that is not something you can skip. You can save the stems, and toss them into soups or stews, but don’t leave them on the leaves when you’re prepping your kale for this recipe. The woody kale stems take a LOT longer to fry than the leaves, so if you don’t stem, you’ll end up with chewy stems in the middles of your crispy kale chips. Or, if you cook longer so the stems get crispy, you’ll end up with burnt leaves. Don’t do it. I ruined a good batch of kale chips this way. Lesson learned!
