Curly Kale Chips

Kale is one of the world’s healthiest foods! It’s is a super food, packed with antioxidants and other things that help new brain cells grow.

Kale is an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin C, vitamin A, manganese, and copper; a very good source of vitamin B6, fiber, calcium, potassium, vitamin E, and vitamin B2; and a good source of iron, magnesium, vitamin B1, phosphorus, protein, folate, and vitamin B3. Omega-3 and omega-6 fats in kale are in an ideal ratio (almost 1:1).

Curly Kale Chips for seasoning

You can enjoy your Curly Kale Chips on their own or use them as a spice to season almost anything! I use it to season my fish, eggs, vegetables for example. Crispy kale is easy to crumble on the top of the food.

  • Curly kale
  • Seasoning of your choice (Himalayan salt, black pepper, red bell pepper powder, garlic powder, onion powder...)


  1. Preheat the oven 350°F (=175°C).
  2. Wash and dry the kale leaves throughout. Remove the stem and tear the kale into bite sizes.
  3. Sprinkle some olive oil on them and use fingers to massage the oil is all round. Just enough oil to make them "shiny", not too much. Add the spices (salt, pepper, red bell pepper powder, garlic powder, onion powder...)
  4. Spread the kale evenly on a baking sheet for a thin, single layer. Not a thick layer!
  5. Place the kale in the oven. The right time will vary based on your oven, but something like 10-15 minutes should do (lower level in the oven). You can turn around the baking tray on the half way if it looks like the other side is doing better. Be careful that the kale won't burn.
  6. If the chips are still a bit soft after 15 minutes, put them back in the oven, remove the heat and leave the oven door slightly open to let the moisture come out. Wait for another 3-5 minutes and you should have some perfectly crispy curly kale chips on its way.
