kale crisps

August 27, 2011

Author Notes: Kale is such a super versatile veggie. You can stir fry, eat it raw or bake to create kale chips--which is my sure-fire way to get my son to eat kale. It's so simple that not only will my son eat it, he can make it himself too. Sometimes I top pizzas with this for an added crunch and greens.edamame2003

Serves: 2


  • 1 bunch kale (lacinato works well)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 lemon juice
In This Recipe


  1. separate the kale leaves from the rib and tear into 'chip'-sized pieces
  2. after washing and drying the kale, add salt and massage the kale for about a minute, evenly distributing the salt.
  3. let the kale sit for about 10 minutes.
  4. mix in the olive oil and lemon juice to coat the leaves.
  5. place on a baking tray (I line mine with parchment paper) and bake at 350 for 10 minutes or until crisp.
