Kale chips?!?  Doesn’t sound very appealing, does it?  But surprisingly, this healthy treat is quite addictive.  I found a few recipes for kale chips on the web last week while trying to find a new way to eat kale.  This was quick, easy, and enjoyed by everyone in my family – including my 3-year-old who kept asking for them even after they were long gone.  

Kale chips are surprisingly crispy with a great flavor.  My advice:  When making them, don’t add too much salt.  It seemed to take very little.  Also, watch them closely as they’re baking so you don’t scorch them.  The dark green color maintains, even after baking, so they may not look done when in fact they are.

Kale Chips

1 bunch fresh kale

1 tsp. olive oil

Sea Salt to Taste

Tear the kale into bite-sized chunks, wash, and drain very well.  Toss with 1 tsp. olive oil and sprinkle lightly with sea salt.  Spread on cookie sheet and bake at 350º for 10 – 15 minutes, stirring every few minutes to prevent scorching.  When the kale is crispy, it’s done!

I could have eaten the entire bunch of kale by myself!  We liked them best when they were still warm, but they were still very tasty after cooling.

  2. Yum Yum Yum. I think I got this idea from you a long time ago- or maybe a site you linked to had it (some veggie site). I was totally addicted. When our produce bin starts becoming “wintery” (i.e. hardy greens, squash varieties and potatoes!) I will have to remember how yummy these were to use up all that kale. BTW – replace some of the sea salt with a Cajun seasoning (Tony’s). HOLL-AH!

  3. What a cool idea- right now I have squash blossoms, too- better get cooking! This is nice because kale is usually available at the store year round.

  4. I’ve saved this recipe for later in the year. We have a CSA subscription that gives us whatever organic fruit and vegetables are at their peak year-round, so sometimes we get kale and other strong-smelling and tasting greens. I hated them as a child, and I can barely tolerate them now. I don’t want to waste them, but I’ve yet to find anyone else who likes them enough to take them off my hands, so I’ll be trying this approach next time kale appears in our box. Thanks for the posting!

  5. These are delicious with a little lemon juice splashed on after the olive oil! I LOVE kale chips! Also, I find that 9 minutes on 350 is more than enough. Any longer and they tend to burn, but work with your oven, just watch closely after 8-9 minutes.

  6. With all the diseases that plagues mankind today, there is no way the hospital is the only way people can find their deliverance and healing anymore ? they have to turn to these other means.
