  • 1 bunch of fresh kale
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • salt to taste
  • optional spices cheese, vinegar


  1. Remove center stems from kale
  2. Tear into large pieces
  3. Wash and dry thoroughly, ensuring all moisture is gone from kale leaves
  4. Divide kale into two batches and spread out on two parchment lined baking sheets
  5. Drizzle approximately one tablespoon of oil over kale pieces on each baking sheet
  6. Sprinkle with salt (and optional spices or flavorings)
  7. Massage oil and spices into each piece of kale, taking care that every part of kale is covered with oil
  8. Bake at 300F for 15-18 minutes, rotating baking sheets half way through cooking time
  9. Monitor chips to ensure they do not burn -- smaller pieces will take less time to cook
  10. Chips should be vibrant green but browning on edges and should not be tough or chewy
