Baked Kale Chips

Kale chips

We were having kale for dinner last night, but we bought a bit too much for just the two of us. So while Mr TBTAM sautéed some up with garlic using his now-famous recipe, I took the rest and made kale chips for snacking. It was all we could do not to eat them all before dinner.


This recipe is modified from one I found in the Beard Foundation Newsletter.

  • Olive oil (1 tbsp per large bunch of kale -you barely need any oil)
  • 1 large bunch of kale, rinsed and pat dry, leaves cut away from stalks and torn into large bite size pieces
  • Sea salt
  • Pepper

Preheat oven to 425 degrees fahrenheit. Put about a tbsp of olive oil in a large bowl, then add kale and rub with the olive oil so that both sides are coated. Season with salt and pepper. Place kale on a baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes  or until leaves just start to brown. Turn and bake another 3-5 mins. Be careful, they burn quickly. Remove from oven, let cool and eat. Or store in an airtight container for later snacking.
