Crispy Lemon Pepper Kale Chips — Ingredients:


  • 1 bunch of kale — it also comes pre-cut. Feel free to use more for a bigger batch.
  • Red pepper flakes — you can also use cayenne.
  • Fresh lemon juice
  • Olive oil — about 1 tbsp per bunch.
  • Sea salt and pepper

Prep Time: 5 minutes | Cook Time: 12-15 minutes | Servings: 1

  • (1) Preheat the over to 325º.
  • (2) Using a salad spinner or paper towels, make sure that the kale is extremely dry. Damp kale won’t come out crispy.
  • (3) Cut/rip the kale into small pieces. Remove all of the stems and veins — you only want the leaves.
  • (4) Place the kale in a large mixing bowl and toss lightly with a drizzle of olive oil (~ 1 tbsp/bunch), a big squeeze of fresh lemon, a dash of sea salt, cracked pepper, and roasted red pepper flakes. More red pepper = a much spicier recipe. You can also use a Ziploc bag.
  • (5) Spread the kale out flat on a baking sheet. Try not to stack the leaves.
  • (6) Pop in the oven and cook for 12-15 minutes. Check it after 12 minutes — if they’re dry and crispy, they’re done. If not, keep them in for a few more minutes and check periodically.
