Yummy Kale chips! Everyone seems to love these even the non veggies lovers. You don’t even need to be a chef extraordinaire. These do require some hard work but they are so much cheaper and better than tearing open a bag of potato chips. Now that I’m visiting farmers markets on the weekends it might become a weekly staple in my house.

Important steps:

  1. The kale leaves must be SUPER DRY.
  2. Bake the kale at 350 F.
  3. Cook the chips for 12 minutes.
  4. Salt AFTER the kale chips are out of the oven.

Here’s what I assembled to make my own chips:

  • 2 bunches of red kale
  • 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Salt & Pepper to taste


Here’s what I did:

  • I preheated the oven to 350 F. Then, I removed the leaves from the stems and washed the leaves well in a few changes of water. The stuff I bought was DIRTY.
  • I tossed the dry leaves with olive oil and I used my hands to distribute the oil evenly. I lined a baking sheet with parchment paper and lay some of the leaves on top in a single layer.
  •  Make sure the leaves are all flat and not folded over or they won’t crisp properly.
  •  Set your timer because if the kale burns it will be bitter. Once the kale was out of the oven, I seasoned the chips with some fleur de sel.
