Okay, let me be very frank…I have never bought  this veggie though I have seen it every time i go the produce section of the super market.

I have told you earlier too, my veggie choices were very limited :)
Of late, I have been seeing these kale chips all over the blogging world…wanna give it a try.
believe me, it tastes heavenly good.
ta dah, one more veggie in my so called “veggie choices”.

We have the habit of having something crispy with our lunch. ie; with rice, dal and sabzi. Mostly we have paapad, at times when we don”t have paapad, we opt for plain old lays chips too..but we need something crispy..that is the rule :)
Now a days these kale chips have taken paapad’s place.
They are baked, its a veggie, its crispy and above all its yummy.. C’mon, what more you can ask for?
Next time, when you go, get a fresh bunch of this beautiful veggie, and try these chips. you are gonna love it.

Baked Crispy Kale chips


  • Kale: I bunch (the curly kind)
  • Olive oil: 1 tbsp
  • Salt: 1 tsp


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Wash the kale leaves thoroughly and dry it well on the kitchen towel. Use a salad spinner, if you have one.
  4. Remove leaves from the thick stem using a knife or kitchen shears and tear them into bite sized pieces.
  5. Drizzle kale leaves with olive oil and sprinkle with salt.
  6. Spread the leaves on the prepared cookie sheet, with the curly side down. Bake for 10-12 min until the kale leaves get crispy in the edges. For even baking, give the leaves a stir, half way through baking. Cool them completely before storing in an airtight container.
