Baked Kale Chips!

>> Monday, March 25, 2013

I've been meaning to get into the world of kale for a while now.... is anyone else out there a little intimidated by this vegetable, for lack of knowing what the heck to do with it?  I definitely fall into this category.

Here is my first foray into cooking kale - I heard quite a while ago that you can make great tasting, crispy chips out of kale, to satisfy that crunch craving in place of less healthy choices like potato chips.

It's so easy - I should have tried it long ago!  At just 33 calories per cup of kale, it is a Free Veg - provided you go easy on the olive oil cooking spray.


1 bunch of kale
olive oil cooking spray
garlic powder
pinch of salt


1.  Preheat oven to 350F (175 C).

2.  Line a baking sheet with tin foil.

3.  Remove the kale leaves from the tough stem strip in the middle.  Throw away the stem strip.  Cut the leaves into bite sized pieces.

4.  Arrange the kale leaf pieces on the baking sheet, and spray lightly with olive oil spray.    Bake until the edges are slightly browned, about 10-15 minutes.

Note: I tried storing my leftovers in a Tupperware container.  Maybe this is obvious to everyone but me but - don't do this.  They get soggy!  This recipe is for enjoying right after it's cooked. :)

Our CSA box last year contained a ridiculous amount of kale so I had to find ways to use it. Kale chips are great! I also enjoy kale sautéed, and this recipe is another winner:
