Baked Kale Chips

Baked Kale Chips

  • 1 large bunch fresh kale, tough stems removed, leaves torn into pieces
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • Preheat to 400 °F.
  • Wash kale with cold water, remove tough stems.
  • Pat it dry thoroughly with a clean kitchen towel.
  • Transfer to a large bowl.
  • Drizzle the kale with oil and sprinkle with salt.

  • Using your hands, massage the oil and salt onto the kale leaves to evenly coat.
  • Fill 2 large rimmed baking sheets with a layer of kale, making sure the leaves don’t overlap and they are not overcrowded. This will bake kale evenly.

  • Bake until most leaves are crisp, switching the pans back to front and top to bottom halfway through.
  • After 7 to 8 minutes start checking if they are done as kale burns very easily and gives bitter flavour.
