Spicy Kale chips

If you're looking for a tasty healthy and guilt free alternative to crisps(potato chips) then this is the recipe for you :)

This recipe is so tasty and you can go wild with adding any flavouring that you love and best of all you can eat lots of it without feeling guilty. I love crisps and really needed this alternative for a bit of a crisp free detox so I decided to try Kale and wow it tastes amazing, I strongly urge you to give it a try.

Kale on a stalk or in a bag , it doesn't matter ( I used already cut kale in a bag)

salt as needed
pepper as needed
olive oil to drizzle or flavoured oil (I used chili rapeseed oil)

Method and preparation:

pre heat your oven to 180/350

Wash the kale thoroughly and make sure it's completely dry by using a salad spinner or paper towels.

Spread the kale on a lined baking tray making sure not to overlap any kale as it won't cook evenly.

Now add the salt and pepper from a height to ensure even seasoning. And drizzle about a table spoon of olive oil over the kale.

Use your fingers to massage the seasoned oil into each of the leaves.

Spread the leaves in a single layer .

Now place the trays in the oven and bake for 5 minutes, after the 5 minutes are up swap the trays for even cooking and cook for a further 5 minutes until nice and crispy.

Serve the crispy kale chips in a bowl and enjoy :)


If you are using kale from a stalk , make sure to remove the rib which is the thick part, you don't cook this.

Make sure the kale is completely dry after washing or else you'll end up with steamed rather than crispy kale.

Oven temps vary so please keep and eye on the kale as it's baking as you don't want it to burn.

Have fun experimenting with flavours :) and enjoy.
