  1. Great video! I have lots of kale in my garden, so I’ll experiment with kale chips this weekend. Thanks!

  2. Wow. Made these this morning and these are fantastic. I used my dehydrator instead of my oven, set at 135 degrees and they were done within an hour. Delicious!

  3. Hey, any chance we can get some of these video recipes in written form? I find it very difficult to recreate a recipe from a video. 🙂


  4. I love cooking Kale in the oven, it is so good and the crunchyness of it helps satisfy cravings I sometimes get for chips, etc. Excelent job!

  5. I had kale chips a few weeks ago (seasoned with pesto) and man alive they were good. I may have to try this.

    Love the apron/shorts combo there. Tres chic!

  6. I was skeptical but these are pretty good! The next batch will have more seasoning on them.

  7. I made these a few minutes ago and had to stop myself from eating the entire batch. Never would I have EVER have thought that I could eat so much kale at one time. Next time I’ll be making double the amount. I did add a smidge too much salt because I was so scared I would only taste veggies. Next time, I’ll use a lot less.
    Thanks for the recipe :]

  8. How did you store the leftovers? I put mine in airtight container and they turned soggy. Did let them cool first.

  9. I make it like this:
    1 bunch kale
    1 Tbsp olive oil or olive oil spray
    2 tsp apple cider vinegar
    Sea salt, to taste

    1.Preheat the oven to 350°F.
    2.Wash kale well. Strip the leaves away from the stems (discard the stems) and cut or rip them into pieces. In a mixing bowl, toss with the olive oil (or spray lightly) to coat the leaves.
    3.Spread the prepared leaves across a baking sheet and sprinkle with the cider vinegar.
    4.Roast 10 minutes, then stir to help the leaves brown more evenly. Continue roasting until the kale is crispy (like potato chips) and very lightly browned.
    5.Remove from oven and sprinkle with sea salt. Serve hot.

  10. What the heck? I tried to watch the video and it says it’s private….what’s the point of posting this if we can’t watch it?

    1. Yes. If someone can “un”-private it, that would be cool.

  11. Any particular reason why kale chips link was highlighted in today’s mailing, but the video can’t be seen…is marked “private” ?

  12. Hi Emily,
    I would like to watch your kale chips video too but it is private.
    Thank you.
    I hope that you change it.

  13. It’s primal, it’s Kale, she’s a cutie… What’s not to love. It’s coming on summer, here, so I’ll probably use the dehydrator instead of the oven, but I’ve been wanting to give this a try for some time. Thanks for re-sparking my interest — sounds like a good project for this weekend!

  14. These are awesome!! I have to say I had my doubts at first but I just made my first batch and am very impressed. Kudos and thanks!

  15. Is it OK to heat the olive oil to 200? Or should you bake it with coconut and drizzle the olive after for flavor?

  16. These did not turn out well at all. 200 degrees for 17 minutes is just not enough. I wound up increasing the temp slowly and they took a long time because I didn’t want them to burn. Other recipes say 300-350 so I’ll try that next time. They are awesome when baked just right!
