Photo Recipe: CG’s Kale Chips

When kale is at its most plentiful in the fall, this leafy green packs a powerful nutrient punch. We like it in a savory Village Pie, Kale Caesar Salad or in a Massaged Kale Salad. But when you get an urge for something crispety crunchy, you might find that kale makes a slightly addictive snack in kale chips. Of all the variations I’ve tried, CG’s Kale Chips recipe is the best. Lemony bright and tangy with a dairy-free cheese flavor, man, these hit the spot! She shows how to make them in a dehydrator but to bake them, turn on your oven to 300 degrees and bake for 20 minutes or until crisp but not burned.

Set your oven to 300 degrees

  1. I wish I could learn to like kale 😦 I swear, I have tried every method of cooking it (baked, massaged, smoothie’d, stir-fried, etc), and I just can’t get into it. Have you always liked it, or did you have to get accustomed to the taste?

    • I learned to like it Lara. This recipe is really, really good. It made a kale chip fan out of Beck. Also the Kale Caesar salad recipe linked here is really good too- familiar flavors to ease into that dark, deep leafy flavor. Let me know if you try either of the recipes and they make a kale fan out of you.

  2. Love the oven modification!

    I just made a batch of chips and they are almost gone. Yum.

  3. I enjoy Kale in a variety of ways. The first time I had kale was when a friend of mine made kale chips, I was hooked! It’s great raw in salads, in soups or sauteed. Delicious! I will have to try your recipe for chips as it is different from mine. Thanks for sharing.
