It was a rainy day and I was craving something crispy. My daughter goes to school just thrice a week and I thought maybe she and I could do something indoors together and so we decided to cook together. Problem was that I didn’t have enough ingredients to bake muffins or cookies. BUT, I did have some kale in the fridge, something I bought hoping to use. But anyone who knows me, knows how much I don’t like kale. After some research we decided to make some kale chips and let me tell you, it turned out great. In fact, so great that she even took some to school the next day! Here’s hoping you enjoy it as much as we did..

  • Kale, washed and dried
  • Himalayan Salt, as per your taste
  • Olive oil spray
  • Parmesan cheese (optional)
  1. Wash and dry the kale throughly.
  2. Remove stems, keeping only the leafy part.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  4. Put the kale in a big bowl and lightly spray with the olive oil. Too much olive oil makes them soggy and not crispy.
  5. Add the salt and mix well.
  6. If you are using Parmesan, add that in at this point as well. We made ours without Parmesan.
  7. Lay out the kale evely on a cookie sheet avoiding any clumps.
  8. Pop into the center of the oven for 10-12 minutes, checking at around 10 minutes to make sure that the edges are not getting burnt.
  9. Enjoy!
