  • 1 bunch curly or Tuscan kale (10-12 ounces)
  • 1 ½ tablespoons olive oil
  • Kosher salt
US Customary - Metric


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Rinse and dry the kale leaves. Make sure the leaves are completely dry so that they crisp up nicely in the oven. Remove the stems and ribs, then cut or tear the leaves into large pieces. Toss the kale pieces in a large bowl with the olive oil and mix with your hands to make sure all of the pieces are coated. Season with salt.
  3. Transfer the kale to 2 baking sheets, arranging the pieces in a single layer. Bake in the oven until crispy, about 10 minutes. Watch them carefully during the last few minutes as they can burn quickly. Remove the tray from the oven and let the chips cool before serving. Enjoy!
