Healthy Recipe: Spicy Crispy Kale Chips

Kale is becoming more and more popular, and was even chosen by many as their favorite healthy food of 2009. Below is a great recipe for those of you who might still be on the fence about eating kale.

Spicy Kale Chips


1/2-1 bunch of clean and dry organic kale, chopped into bite-sized pieces (remove any tough stems)

1-2 Tbsp. olive oil

1-2 large pinches of spicy seasoned coarse salt

Juice from 1/2 lime (or to taste) - optional


Preheat your oven to 325°F.

Drizzle some oil over the kale and "massage" it into the leaves. The kale I used for this post was an unusually large bunch. I’d say I used half the bunch and 1-2 tablespoons of oil.

Next, spread your oiled kale onto a sheet pan and bake in preheated oven for about 20 minutes -- just until the edges are just crispy, but the kale is still quite bright green. Do not overcook!

As soon as you take your kale chips out of the oven, sprinkle with a few pinches of the spicy salt and then squeeze on the optional lime.
