baked kale chips

Tuesday, June 28, 2011


Most of you were not jumping out of your seats with excitement about the kale smoothie I mentioned last week. Raw kale is not one of those veggies that you pack in a little container and eat on your lunch break...it's more of a get it down fast so you can receive all the health benefits kind of veggie.

I ALWAYS have a little pep talk with myself before I eat tortilla chips. It goes something like this..."Only a FEW then WALK away." Never happens. I end up camping out by the chips and end up with a giant chip hangover the next day.

I made a batch of baked kale chips over the weekend. Ian and I ate every last one. YEPPPP Ian ate them...that is proof they did not taste like raw bitter kale. No chip hangover the next day makes me a happy camper.

Directions:
  • Wash and dry Kale
  • Remove the stem from the kale
  • Rip them into chip sizes
  • Spray olive or coconut oil on them
  • sprinkle with sea salt and whatever seasoning you like
  • Bake for 15 min at 300 degrees

SO easy and seriously delicious!

Yess I'm so glad you liked them! I totally expected them to taste gross but they rival any other comfort food out there!

I have been hearing about kale chips everywhere and now I want to try them! I need more creative ways to get veggies in that I don't like that much. I think I would enjoy these more than a kale smoothie :)

Mindy said...

I've had these before at a restaurant and they were yummy. I ripped out a recipe that uses kale to make this week. I was thinkin' of you scolding me. :o) Just kidding. I like my greens. Just not in smoothies. Bleck.

my little celebration said...

Beautiful pictures! I have heard of kale chips but never made them. Yours look so good though!

Andrea @ Strawberry Chic said...

I'm excited to try these! I have a soup recipe that calls for a cup of kale, and I never know what to do with the leftovers!

le sorelle said...

Ooh yum! We've done a similar thing to broccoli and it tastes DELISH! (I think we baked it for a bit longer, though..) I've totally had a chip hangover - that's a term I will be using from now on! ;)

Mary said...

Those look awesome!

Amy - a is for ampersand said...

Oh my I seriously just made these last night and then woke up to this post! I think I made mine wrong, though...they were kind of weird and airy. I'll try again using sea salt and some seasoning. Thanks for the recipe! I'm excited to find a better way to eat kale!

Megan and Justin said...

Girl about town.... said...

What an amazing idea! I'm the same, once I have one chip, I eating for the rest of the night! I cannot stop it! I'll be trying your recipe for sure! Thanks to you, I'll still fit my jeans by the end of the summer haha!

I like spinach smoothies, but haven't tried kale in them. I can also eat several roasted veggies...but we were not fans of the kale chips! I said it tasted like broccoli flavored potato chips ;) Maybe I need to try them again b/c I don't think I used any seasonings (maybe salt & pepper?) - can't remember, it's been a while. Maybe my taste buds have "matured" past that of a 7 year old :) Off to check out your strawberry muffins...they are on my "to make" list!

Ashley said...

I've always been kind of intimidated by kale chips. Maybe this is a sign that it's time to make some. You've inspired me to at least try them!

Val said...

Kale chips are a huge addiction of mine!

Chelsea said...

I have been hearing such great things about kale chips... I just might have to make some of my own! You have the cutest little blog! I'm just loving all the thriftiness :)

Katie said...

Haven't tried these yet but they are on my list now! :)

Hollie Ann said...

What a good idea! Whoever thought of these is a genius!

Brynn {chartreuse and a twist} said...

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!! I have been wanting to make these! Thanks so much for sharing :) xoxoxo brynn

Rachael said...

I've been trying to break my dad from chips, this looks like something he'd go for, if Ian is a picky eater like my dad (i.e. if it tastes healthy, he doesn't want any part of it).

Eva @ Four Leaf Clover said...

Yum! I've been meaning to try baked kale chips for a while now! I love kale and definitely want to get as much of it as possible into my diet (I just wish it were easier to find where I live)!

Stephanie @ henry happened said...

I've made these before and couldn't believe they were actually tasty! (but then again, I'm not a kale hater.) You know what is also totally unexpectedly yummy after roasting - cauliflower!

ginnysaurusrex said...

Oh man. I make these pretty often & THEY ARE SO ADDICTIVE & DELICIOUS. Even my picky 3 yr old eats them & loves them!

Ashlyn said...

i have been hearing so much about kale chips -- i am going to have to put this on my list of things i have to make. ha the list is getting really big, so it might take me awhile!

natasha {schue love} said...

I think I have to try this, I need more vegies and this sounds yummy.

Drew {Coral Cafe} said...

I'm looking for any kind of chance to eat healthy this summer!! I bet I'd really like these! Thanks for the tips!!

Jackie said...

My boss made some of these and brought them to work and I just love the seasoning of the kale and the crispiness.

girlichef said...

Yum! Kale is actually my favorite veg...and kale chips are fantastic. Although I have to say that I do love tortilla chips, too... ;)

www.StarHughes.com said...

Wow! I can definitely use a substitute for my tortilla chip obsession! Those sound pretty yummy, especially with the seasoning! And I love the health effects too!!

Kaycie said...

Mmm kale chips look delish! I will definitely have to try this one out! Way healthy, too!

Foodness Gracious said...

I love Kale chips. I have a friend who makes them in her dehydrator and I can't just stop at a few. Your chips look awesome.
Thanks for sharing!

Bibi said...

Yummy! I'm so going to find out if my hubby will eat them or not ;o)

Robyn Rasmussen said...

These turned out GREAT! I ate the entire batch in one sitting. :) Found you over on Pinterest and ended up pinning almost every recipe on here! I also posted a link to your site here: http://tipsfromtheheart.blogspot.com/2012/01/pinterest-kitchen-week-6.html

bethany said...

I'm in NZ so kale isn't exactly at the local supermarket :) Could you use silverbeet instead?

alysa canfield said...

These were AMAZING.

devon lynne said...

Before trying this recipe, I had never eaten kale. It's so tasty! I like it raw also, and think it would be better than lettuce for salads. It didn't taste bitter to me, so I don't know if that's just me or the type I used.

Sandra said...

Okay, so how do dry kale? I patted it with a bunch of paper towels but could not get it completely dry. My kale turned out a big soggy mess! (I love kale so I ate it anyway, but I need help to get this chip thing right!)

The Popes said...

my mom made a kale salad last night that was awesome. Just kale, apple cider vinegar, oil, apple slices, and golden raisins! Super yummy!

I bake mine at 315 F for 15 minutes. I've tried them with Herbamare spice also. Anything works ! I'm addicted !
