Roasted Kale (aka Kale Chips)

We harvested our first batch of kale from our garden this week.  Ellie brought it in the house, washed it and we promptly began to make it into our favorite kale snack.

Large bunch kale
1 T olive oil
1 t  garlic salt

The directions are simple and result in one of our favorite crunchy snacks:

Wash and gently dry kale leaves.

Break leaves into bite size pieces, making sure to remove the stem (it's very bitter).

Toss kale with olive oil and spread on a cookie sheet.  Sprinkle with garlic salt.

Bake at 300 degrees for about 10-15 minutes (stay close to the oven, though; these can go from perfect to charred in a matter of seconds).

The kale should be slightly brownish and delightfully crispy.

These rarely last more than a few minutes in our house, but  if they happen to at yours the chips can be stored in a plastic bag and they'll remain crispy.

From the looks of our garden we're going to have an overabundance of kale pretty soon.  So I'd really love to hear from you if you have any favorite recipes!


    I actually put in more Kale and potatoes then the recipe calls for.

    1. That looks delicious! Thanks for sharing. I will definitely be making it soon!
