Easy Crispy Kale Chips

I heard lots of mixed feelings from people about kale. Some love it, some hate it. If you love kale you are going to go head over heels with this easy kale chips recipe! When cooked correctly, it turns into this beautiful, delicious, flavorful explosion in your taste buds. If you have a “I don’t believe a word you’re saying” look right now, I don’t blame you, but don’t knock it till you try it!

I say “cooked correctly” because you want to make sure you follow instructions, otherwise it won’t be that much fun to eat. The trick is to roast them in batches so the kale isn’t too close to one another. If you do not do this, the chips won’t be chips, they will be soggy. Another tip is to try your very best to make sure the kale is as dry as possible after washing. You can use a paper towel for this step.

These kale chips taste sooo good I had to try very hard not to scarf all of it down. It disappeared pretty quickly, and both my husband and I really enjoyed it! I hope you do too!

Prep time: 5 minutesCook time: 15 minutes
Serves: 2Total time: 20 minutes
1 bunch kale (the traditional curly kale)
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (I used this one)
1/2 tsp sea salt (this is one of the best!)
1. Preheat oven to 350F.
2.Wash and dry your kale thoroughly. You can spread them apart on a paper towel, and use more paper towels on top to dry the kale. (You can also do this step in advance and let the kale air dry for a couple of hours)
3. Rip apart the stems and discard, then roughly chop the kale.
4. Add olive oil and sea salt. Lightly toss the salad using your hands or a salad serves.(I used these)
5. Separate kale evenly into 2 batches.
6. Place half of the kale onto 1 baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and the other half onto a second baking sheet. (If you have just one large baking sheet, you can make them one batch at a time)
7. Roast for 15 minutes and enjoy!

Hello and welcome to my site! My name is Rips and I am thrilled to share my passion with you! I am just a girl who loves to bake and cook. It’s one of my favorite things to do and is rewarding in so many ways! It teaches me to be present and helps me relieve stress. I grew up watching both my parents cook the most delicious food you could possibly imagine! Cooking healthy food for each other was something we did for the ones we cared about. Shortly after, I picked up on that habit. I come from a Mediterranean background and I bring that to a lot of my recipes with lots of modern adaptations. I have been baking and cooking for over 15 years and truly find the most joy in it! I also recently wrote and self published my first recipe book called Ripsy's Recipe's on Amazon (I will link below). Ripsy's Recipes has some amazing healthy recipes with gluten free and vegan options that everyone can enjoy. I really wanted to create an easy to follow, non intimidating healthy recipe book for you to love. It truly is my go-to for quick, healthy, easy, delicious meals! The best part of making food is I get to eat it and feed my loved ones. I am very mindful of the ingredients I use in my recipes; at the same time; I still like to indulge in dessert! My dessert recipes are lower in sugar than in any recipe or store bought dessert you will ever find (and they taste amazing). As a result, my family and I get to enjoy it without the guilt. My greatest joy comes from sharing what I make with the people I care about most, and now, you will have access to that too. I hope you try my recipes and love them as much as my family and I do! Namaste Friends!
