After using a big bunch of chopped kale in your salads, frittata, pasta dish or perhaps in a spinach, ricotta and kale pie, you find there’s still plenty of kale leftover. A great idea to use up lots of kale is to make kale chips! Super light, crispy and tasty, this recipe shows just how versatile kale can be.

🍴 Makes: lots
🕒 Prep: 10 mins Cook: 10 mins


  • 1/2 bunch of kale
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • Sprinkle salt, optional


  1. Pre heat oven to 180°C
  2. Remove any thick stalks from larger leaves of kale (with knife or scissors)
  3. Wash and dry kale (massage a little when drying in tea towel to help reduce bitterness)
  4. Tear or cut kale into chip sized pieces and place in large bowl
  5. Add oil and balsamic vinegar (and salt if using) and mix until kale is coated
  6. Spread kale on a baking tray and bake for 7-8 minutes until crunchy (be careful not to burn them)


For added flavour, try sprinkling dukkah over the kale before baking in the oven.
