Kale Chip Recipe


Kale is my favorite green so far. I love it sauteed, but I decided that I would try to make some kale chips with the yummy kale that is growing in my Florida backyard garden.

Let’s keep this simple, shall we? After all, we’re starting with 3 simple ingredients: kale, olive oil, and kosher salt.

Wash kale, rip kale off the main rib into chip-size pieces, toss with a drizzle of olive oil on a cookie sheet, sprinkle with salt, and bake at 350 degrees for about 14 minutes. Keep an eye on them; you want them to be dark green and crispy, not brown.
Wash, rip, drizzle, sprinkle, bake, eat.
Simple to make and only three ingredients. Healthy too, if you care about that kind of stuff. 🙂 I personally feel better about serving this to my family than potato chips. Yikes!! Potato chips have lots of fat and empty calories.

Do you add anything to your kale chips instead of or in addition to the salt? I’d love to hear about it in the comments! Growing kale in Florida is fun and it’s good for you too!

  1. Thanks for the recipe, Sarah. I am enjoyng your blog 🙂 I made kale chips in my dehydrator once and I was underwhelmed by the results, but this looks much quicker and better. I have seen a lot of kale chip recipes with nutritional yeast on them and everyone raves about it. Nutritional yeast tastes like cheese. I bought some to try. I will let you know the results after I do.

    • Sounds yummy! I have also read of people sprinkling the kale with spices to add some heat or for variety. I’m looking forward to hearing how yours turns out! A cheesy flavor would be so good.

  2. I grew kale for the first time this year. Susan just gave me a great idea! I have some “Sandwich Sprinkle” and “Garden Salad Seasoning” from Penzey’s Spices that I’m going to try! Love Love Love Penzey’s spices!
