In the Kitchen: kale chips

I loved having a whole extra day this weekend to go to the market and prepare thoughtful meals and homemade lemonade and snack foods.  It felt good to try new recipes and actually have time to devout in the kitchen. 
After the 48, er 12 hour cleanse I tried ::shudder:: I had a bunch of kale leftover that I needed to get rid of, so I took to the internet in search of a recipe for kale chips. Besides the cleanse, I had never bought kale, but remember eating it in chip form at a restaurant in OKC called 180 degrees.

So, I went for it.. why not?


  • 1 head kale, washed and thoroughly dried
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Sea salt, for sprinkling


Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F.
Remove the ribs from the kale and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces. Lay on a baking sheet and toss with the olive oil and salt. Bake until crisp, turning the leaves halfway through, about 20 minutes. Serve as finger food.
I posted about Kale Chips on Instagram over the weekend.  And they started quite the (positive) discussion so I thought I would post about them here too!  


  1. I've been wanting to try kale chips! Now I have to! :)

    1. You really should! They take 5 seconds to prepare, 20 to cook, and then you have chips immediately awaiting your approval. One Instagrammer said she added Parmesan, though I just used olive oil and sea salt.

  2. yup, I'm finally gonna go for it and try this recipe out.

  3. Seriously - best. thing. ever. I LOVE Kale chips! I will eat a whole head of kale this way. The only other way I can enjoy it is if it goes through the juicer first! Haha!
