Baked Kale Chips


My sister made these for a snack Saturday night. I have to admit, I wasn’t going to try them because A) it’s a vegetable and I don’t really like vegetables (or so I keep saying) and B) I believe no vegetable besides a potato should be turned into a “chip.”

Sigh. I know I’ve said this before — I’ll try anything once. So, I tried these. And I was glad that I did! I’ve never had kale anything before in my life and this was nice, healthy treat. I can honestly eat an entire bunch of kale on my own, which makes me feel like I’m doing something really good for myself as I don’t often eat an entire bunch of kale in one sitting.

Sis got the recipe from


  • 1 bunch kale from your local farmer’s market
  • 1 T. olive oil
  • sea salt, to taste
  • cracked black pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 300°F.
  2. Rinse and dry the kale, then remove the stems and tough center ribs. Cut into large pieces, toss with olive oil in a bowl then sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. Arrange leaves in a single layer on a large baking sheet lined mine with parchment paper for easy clean-up. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until crisp.
