Kale Chips with Lemon, Red Pepper Flakes, Sea Salt, Olive Oil & Cheese

Crispy, salty, tasty!

I'm trying to balance my love of baked goods & chocolate with vegetables & healthy choices. I fell into a bit of a rut eating salads & raw veggies.  It's time to branch out.

I've been hearing a lot about Kale being a super food so I dug a little deeper & discovered that it's rich in Vitamins A, C, & K.  Here's a link from Web MD about Kale: .  

But how does Kale taste?  Raw Kale is thick, leafy and difficult to chew.  Baked kale is tasty & filling. In-fact, it just might be the perfect food to pack in the car when out and about running errands.

         Kale chips are flavorful, hearty and crispy.  


  • 10 ounce bag of pre-washed & chopped bag of Kale (Trader Joe's $1.99)
  • 4 tablespoons of Parmesan, Romano & Asagio cheeses
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • Himalayan salt to taste
  • red pepper flakes to taste

Minimal ingredient list=happiness

Yield: 4 large servings

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Place Kale on 2 Parchment lined baking sheets. Sprinkle all ingredients except the cheese on the kale. Using a spatula, toss the Kale to coat.


Bake for 10 minutes.  Toss.  Bake for an additional 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle cheese on top then serve.

Place remainder of chips in a sealed container. Chips are best enjoyed within a few days.

             Have you tried Kale chips?
