Serving Suggestions


  • It is really important to make sure that the kale is dry for this recipe. If you start with wet kale you won’t ever get that crispy finish.
  • These chips are just dried and still mainly green in colour. Keep an eye on these so they don’t get incinerated.
  • I used a baking rack over an oven tray. It left room for heat to circulate around the chips.
  • I liked sea salt flakes but my kids preferred chicken salt on these chips.
