Sea Salty Kale Chips

Kale chips make a fantastic crispy, savoury snack and are loaded with green goodness. They make a great snack on their own or a fun side dish with dinner!

Have you ever made kale chips before? If not, I hope this recipe inspires you to go out, buy a big bunch of kale, and roast ’em up!

I first ever made kale chips by accident when cooking kale in the oven, not realizing that that’s exactly how you create a crispy chip. I was delighted and I’ve been hooked ever since.

The sea salt is what makes these sea salty, of course. Unrefined sea salt is a fantastic source of minerals, unlike its refined table salt counterpart. If you want a little extra sea-salty-goodness, you can add a sprinkle of kelp or dulse flakes, two wonderful sea vegetables that add a natural saltiness and source of minerals including calcium and iodine.

This recipe is great if you’ve got a whole bunch of kale that you don’t know what to do with. It’s as easy as can be, and I’m confident you’ll love it as much as I do!

How to Make Kale Chips

All you need for making kale chips is one bunch of kale, a bit of olive oil, and some sea salt. You can add any other additional seasonings as per your preference, such as cayenne pepper, paprika, chili powder, or chipotle.

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Remove tough stems from kale and pull leaves apart into large pieces.
  3. Drizzle kale with olive oilI, sprinkle with sea salt, and gently mix together in bowl until evenly coated.
  4. Place in oven for about 10 minutes, flip, and cook another 5 minutes or so. Keep a close eye on them as they easily burn, and your cooking duration may be different depending on your oven!

The chips are done when they’re just browned and crispy. If they seem a little wet or soggy, give them another couple minutes.

Can you Store Kale Chips?

Kale chips have a tendency to get soft if stored in containers. I recommend eating these after they’ve been baked so they have the freshest, crispiest taste and texture. However, you absolutely can store these if you’d like to. Pop them in an airtight container and keep for up to 3 days.
