  • 1 bunch of curly kale
  • 1-2 tbsp Olive oil, or use a spray
  • Sea salt & cracked black pepper

Optional seasonings

  • Lemon juice, paprika, chilli flakes, or your favourite herbs/spices


  • Preheat oven to 140 - 160℃ and line two baking trays with baking paper.
  • Wash and thoroughly dry the kale. Tear the leaves into small pieces.
  • Spread the kale leaves out in a single layer on the baking trays. Lightly coat with oil and massage into the leaves.
  • Sprinkle evenly with salt, pepper and other herbs or spices as desired.
  • Bake for 10 - 20 minutes, until crunchy - the edges should be slightly brown, but be careful not to burn them.


If you’re keen to experiment with other veggies, make sure they're sliced thinly and evenly so that they cook and crisp up evenly.  
Using a food processor or mandolin is the quickest and easiest way to do this.
