Kale Chips

Kale is one of the hot super foods of the day. I only started eating kale a few months ago and just about a week ago I finally tried making kale chips. They were even better than I expected. I was inspired to give it go after reading a post by Zuzka Light. Her recipe is here. My recipe is essentially the same as hers with a few minor changes. Also, if you want some visuals her post has several photos.

Olive oil

Baking sheet
Spatula or tongs
Salad spinner

  • Preheat the oven to 350 deg.
  • Wash and dry the kale in the salad spinner
  • If you're using whole kale leaves you may need to rip them into smaller pieces and remove the large stems
  • Put the kale pieces into a bowl
  • Drizzle with a little olive oil (about a teaspoon or so)
  • Sprinkle with salt
  • Toss the kale to distribute the oil and salt
  • Spread the kale out evenly on the baking sheet (Zuzka recommends not letting the kale overlap, but I have not minded that some bits are less crispy than others. Allowing the pieces to overlap makes it less work and you can make a bigger batch)
  • Bake the kale in the preheated oven for 15 minutes
  • Remove from the oven and serve immediately or store in a paper bag, not in the fridge.
