Kale Chips

My CSA didn’t fail me last week for sure. We received some delicious items in the box, including a large bunch of kale. Having seen kale chips all over the internet and wordpress, I wanted to try my hand at it too.

For some reason I could wrap my head around a leaf, becoming crispy when oven baked. I was sure it would be limp or not appealing, but I was wrong. It was crispy and salty and snack worthy.

Anyone looking for a more nutritious snack, this would be an excellent choice to play around with seasonings to make it more specific to your tastes. Below is the basic recipe that I used. Enjoy!

  • 12 large kale leaves, rinsed, dried, center ribs and stems removed, and leaves cut into large chips size chunks
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Seasoned Salt, I used Penzey’s Ruth Ann’s Muskego Ave Seasoning

Preheat oven to 250°F. Toss kale with oil in large bowl. Sprinkle with seasoning salt and pepper. Arrange leaves in single layer on 2 large baking sheets. Bake until crisp, about 30 minutes for flat leaves and up to 33 minutes for wrinkled leaves. Transfer leaves to rack to cool.

  1. Never heard of .. but chips can be made out most vegetables … maybe I should give it a try when I have kale at home. Very intresting!

    1. Yes, kale chips are delicious. I think the low, slow cooking helps with the burning issue. Plus I have no pride when it comes to timers. I must have a timer going or I will burn the heck out of stuff.
