I have made Kale Chips a few times. Some not so good and others pretty good. Here is the way I make them. First wash the kale. After that, I break it in to small pieces. This is key, because if not when baking the larger pieces won’t get crispy. Next, you want to dry the kale. Wet kale doesn’t get crispy either.

When I first started making kale chips, I used low quality olive oil. Now I have started using high quality evoo! Wow, what a difference that makes. I am using roasted garlic from my friend’s store- Olive Oil Etc. in Doylestown.

Ok…back to the recipe. You want to lightly coat the kale with olive oil. I then put a little sea salt on them. Not too much salt. Lay the kale on a cookie sheet and then bake them in the oven till crispy. I put the oven on around 400 degrees. Don’t walk away from them, they will get crispy fast.

There is my recipe. This was my dinner last night along with quinoa. Yummy! I never thought I would blog about cooking! There is a first time for everything.

This is them after being baked, with the iPhone you really can’t tell the difference.

  1. Can’t wait to try this, Helen! I bought Kale chips a few years ago–they were garlic flavored and called Vampire Chips–and haven’t seen them in many stores outside of the city. Yum. I’ll let you know about my success!

  2. I made kale chips one time but I was told to sprinkle cayenne pepper on them and I sprinkled waaay too much! After reading your recipe I may try again – but with the roasted garlic which sounds much tastier!

  3. I recently discovered these – so tasty, and very healthy too! I read a suggestion on one site to not pour the olive oil onto the kale leaves (it can be too much), but rather just pour some onto your palms and simply coat the kale this way. It works very well!
