Delicious Spicy Roasted Kale Chips

Hi there!

We have been busy in the garden- 

One of our favorite veggies to grow is KALE

It grows like crazy here!

It's easy to grow and a real super food!

We will be eating Kale 


Pick a large amount-

about the size of a bunch of


Break or chop up pieces to about a 2-4'' size

about 4-6 cups total.

Remove the center stem.

Set aside stems for later, to  freeze for soup!

Rinse pieces in cool water

Pat dry with towels or

I like to use a salad spinner.

Put dry pieces in a sealable bag.

Pour a little Olive oil in the bag- seal and gently

squeeze bag to coat the pieces.

Start with a tablespoon then add more if needed.

Coated but not soggy!

I line my baking sheets with cooking parchment paper for

easy cleanup.

I divide what fit in the bag

 on two baking sheets,

single layer.

Sprinkle with salt and red pepper flakes

to suit your families taste.

Heat oven to 300 degrees F

Just about 12 to 15 min.

You will know the chips are ready when they turn a  darker green.

Watch carefully at this point so the chips don't burn.

The chips are light and crispy!

Pull up the sides of the parchment to make a paper funnel and

fill a bowl with the chips !

So delicious!

Even vegetable haters will love these.

We never have any left over, could crumble a few and

use as a Parsley- who would know?

Here's a vintage seed packet you can print

to make yourself a plant marker!

If you try to grow some kale or make some chips, 

tell me what you think.

    1. Laurie, Thank you for visiting! My son got me started on spicy food and he likes it hot! When I make batch after batch in the summer I have to admit that same bag gets used over and over again. It's a time saver and easy clean up.
