Crispy Kale Chips

Super easy and very yummy. Found lots of variations online, some calling for the application of an acid and some that don’t. I’ve tried it both ways this is what I came up with for my favorite prep, so far.


1 bunch kale – washed and dried

Juice of half a lemon

Salt and pepper per your preference

2 cloves of garlic chopped small

2 tbs of olive oil


Preheat oven to 375


Remove center stalks from each kale leaf and break into pieces. I make mine about 2”-3” square

Mix all remaining ingredients in a small dish.

Place kale on a single layer, on a cookie sheet. A piece of parchment paper on the bottom is a good way to ensure you don’t lose any of the garlic and it makes cleanup easier.

Drizzle the kale with the sauce you made.

Bake for about 20 mins or until leaves begin to brown and everything is crispy. Check the kale after 15 mins, stir contents if it doesn’t appear to be cooking evenly. Cook for longer if kale isn’t crispy.
