Cost per serving 33¢


  • 1 large or 2 small bunches of kale
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Wash and dry kale; make sure to remove as much moisture as possible. Cut and discard center stem and tear leaves into 2-inch pieces. Lie on a baking sheet and rub in oil. Sprinkle on the salt and mix. Spread in a single layer –use two baking sheets if needed to spread single layer; otherwise chips won’t crisp well– and bake for 10 minutes. Pull from the oven and turn. Arrange in a single layer and bake for another 10 minutes or so or until crisp. Serve immediately or keep tightly sealed at room temperature.


  • Oven temperatures vary, so keep a close eye during the last minutes of cooking, to avoid burning the chips.


  • Season with oil, chili powder and lemon juice.
  • Season with oil, reduce amount of salt and after first 10 minutes of cooking, add finely crumbled Cotija cheese.
