I personally love kale chips but not everybody is as keen. You will either love or hate them. Try it for yourself :)

It's not difficult to make kale chips. However, I was struggling when baking them, as they got burned a couple of times. I figured out you have to dehydrate them to make them crispy without burning.

Ingredients (makes 4 servings)

Note: When looking for ingredients, try to get them in their most natural form (organic, without unnecessary additives).

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to low, 100 °C/ 212 °F. Wash the kale thoroughly and make sure you drain it completely (paper towel works best). If you don't dry it enough, it will get soggy. Remove the stems and tear or chop into large-bite-sized pieces. Don't make them too small, they'll shrink a bit while baking.
    I used Curly Kale in this recipe. Other types such as Lacinato Kale or even the outer leaves of Savoy Cabbage work well, too!
  2. Place the teared kale into a bowl and add a pinch o salt and olive oil. Mix well with hands to allow the oil everywhere. If you don't want to get messy, simply place the kale into a plastic bag, add the seasoning and shake well.

  3. Add half of the grated Parmesan cheese and mix well. Place on a baking sheet lined with baking paper and put in the oven. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until crispy, checking frequently. Remove from the oven and when still hot, sprinkle with the rest of the Parmesan cheese.

  4. Place on a serving plate and enjoy! Chips & Crisps: Parmesan Kale Chips

Other possible seasonings I tried (for the same amount of kale):

  • Basic (salt, 1-2 tbsp olive oil)
  • Cinnamon-spiced (1 tsp cinnamon, 1-2 tbsp Erythritol, 1-2 tbsp melted coconut oil)
  • Garlic (1 tbs garlic powder or 2 cloves mashed garlic, salt, 1-2 tbsp olive oil)
  • Salt & vinegar (1 tbsp balsamic vinegar, salt, 1-2 tbsp olive oil)

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

Can you tell me how much constitutes a serving so I can work out how much NOT to eat they are so good - I have just made my first batch and my daughter has ate them all! We are off to the pictures tonight so need to make more!

Thank you Juli! This recipe makes 4 servings and I'd guess that one serving is about a cup or two - it depends on how big the pieces are. And I've been working on a new recipe with 2-3 other flavour variations which I'm planning to post soon 😊

Hi!! I tried making this recipe and the kale tasted yummy, it was very crispy. I wasn't sure what was the best way to store it. Once the kale chips were completely cooled down, I put them in a tupperware and closed the lid. I left them out of the fridge because I didn't want moisture to form inside the container and make them soggy. Despite doing that, the kale chips were not crispy anymore the next day. Do you have any tips on how to store these chips in a way that would maintain their crispness?

Hi Manu, thank you! I think the best way is to store them in an airtight container once they cool down - just like you did. Sometimes the chips seem crispy and done but maybe you will need to bake / dehydrate them for longer, especially if there are thicker leaves or stalks. Hope this helps!

Ohh, ok! I'll try leaving them in the oven for a longer time next time. Thanks for the tip!
