Baked Kale Chips

I've only recently discovered kale. Kale and bok choy where the two biggest veggie discoveries for me last year doing the CSA (community supported agriculture). I like sauteed kale but I could never get the kids to touch it.
I saw these on Smitten Kitchen over a year ago and have wanted to try them. My youngest has recently become addicted to nori. Trader Joes sells it in convenient little packages and she can eat a whole package in a sitting. I usually help her. The salty crunchiness is quite appealing. I thought she'd love kale chips too and I was right.
She ate two pans worth in a matter of minutes. Okay, to be fair there was a fair bit on her face, hands, and the floor too.

Printable Recipe

1 bunch kale
olive oil
salt (I prefer kosher)

Preheat oven to 300°. Remove stems and centers from kale leaves. Cut or tear into pieces. Toss with olive oil and salt. Lay in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes or until crisp. Cool.


  1. I keep seeing these! I know I'll try them at some point. They look tasty!

  2. I keep meaning to make these as well. Kale isn't something that is usually on my radar at all. Certainly a worthy testimony from Miss P! Cute, cute, cute!

  3. I was inspired by the same smitten kitchen recipe and made these roasted kale as the base for a quinoa salad. Yum. I'll have to try offering them to the kids as a snack.
