Kale Chips

Crispy, crunchy, and just a hint of salt. Here’s a way to introduce kale to even the pickiest of eaters! Making your own kale chips is just a fraction of the price of the store-bought option, and after you pick-up your CSA you likely have everything you need on hand. Feel free to add different spices or herbs to flavor your chips, or enjoy plain. This recipe is also a great way to get kids in the kitchen. Follow our easy recipe, and tips for delicious kale chips every time.

Kale Chips

  • Remove the kale stems, the stems will taste tough and woody in a baked chip.
  • Keep the leaves as big as you can, they’ll shrink up a lot in the oven. I like to fold the leaves in half, then slice out the stem.
  • Thoroughly wash and dry the leaves. The very best tool for this is a salad spinner. You can also use a clean, dry dishtowel to gently squeeze out any extra moisture.
  • Toss the leaves with the oil first, then add the spices. Use your hands to evenly distribute the oil, salt, and any spices.
  • Bake the kale leaves low, and don’t remove them from the oven until all the moisture is baked out of the leaves. You might have to add a few minutes to the timer once or twice. Watch carefully.
  •  Let the kale chips cool so they are crispy and crunchy when you eat them. Best enjoyed immediately!
