Crispy Kale Chips

Kale ChipsLena Kuppens


  • Salad Spinner
  • Mixing Bowl
  • Baking Tray
  • Baking Paper


  • Few drops of Olive Oil
  • Bunch of Kale Stalks
  • Pinch Chilli Flakes
  • Pinch Salt

Preheat oven to 160C. Line two large baking trays with baking paper.

Prepare the ingredients : Remove the stems very quickly by grabbing the base of the stem with one hand and pulling outwards along the stem to slide off the leaves. Tear the leaves into bite size pieces. Rinse the kale and dry the leaves very well in a salad spinner.

Massage : Mix the kale in a big bowl with a few drops of olive oil and a small sprinkle of chilli flakes. ‘Massage’ the oil into the leaves to ensure all the nooks and crannies are coated. Oil also helps the spices stick to the leaves. Spread kale out in a single layer on prepared trays.

Baking : Bake for 12-15 minutes, swapping trays half way through cooking time, or until leaves are crisp. Serve sprinkled with sea salt.
