Kale Chips!

So, my friend has been telling me how good these Kale chips are she's making. I've been a bit of a doubter on this one. Kale and chips do not belong in the same sentence! Well, in an attempt to satisfy curiosity and possibly find an alternative to all the real junk food I've been snacking on lately I gave them a whirl. First try - honestly, was not a success - I burnt them! That was my fault. I made a second batch last night using a recipe from Do it Delicious. These babies turned out great. Now, I still don't think they should be called a chip, let's be real. But, they were crispy, salty and I felt like this was a great way to eat this "super food" called Kale. I thought I'd share the recipe I used with all you non-believers out there as well. Let me know what you think. Enjoy!


- 1 large bunch of Kale

- 3 tablespoons of Olive Oil

- Salt and Parmesan cheese to taste

Heat the oven to 300°F. Pull the kale leaves from the stem; discard the stem. Tear the leaves into 3-inch pieces (8 to 10 cups total) and place on a rimmed sheet pan. Toss with the oil and rub to evenly coat each leaf. Arrange in a single layer and bake until crisp, 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool, then sprinkle with salt and Parmesan to taste before serving.


  1. I LOVE kale! We eat it at least 3 times a week! It's really good juiced too! I'll be sure to try this! Yum.

  2. This sounds really good! Maybe it will steer me away from potato chips.

  3. my mother in law makes kale chips, and her batter she uses with them is YUMMY. cute blog. (:
