How To Make Kale Chips

Kale Chips


  • 1 bunch of curly kale
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil (more if need be but be careful not to over saturate the leaves)
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt (more to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon hot pepper flakes (more to taste)
  • Experiment with different spices…add nutritional yeast, cumin, cayenne- no rules!


  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F.
  2. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  3. Remove the center rib and stems from each kale leaf and discard (or juice…or eat!).
  4. Tear or cut the leaves into bite-size pieces, they shrink as they cook so don’t make too small.
  5. Wash the kale and dry it very well by spinning in a salad spinner or using a clean tea towel.
  6. Place the kale in a large bowl. Drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle with the garlic powder and sea salt.
  7. Massage the oil and seasonings into the kale with your (clean) hands to make sure the leaves are evenly coated.
  8. Place the kale leaves in a single layer on the baking sheets, and bake until crisp and the edges are slightly browned, 10-15 minutes. Watch closely.
  9. Let cool and then store in an air tight container.
