Savory Kale Chips With Sesame Seeds, Balsamic, and Sesame Oil Recipe Follow Me on Pinterest

Kale chips are all the rage right now.

Everywhere you look, you’ll see recipes for them. I remember the first time I had heard of kale chips was when I was reading the freebie magazine from my local health food store. At that time, I wasn’t a huge fan of kale, so I didn’t give them a second thought.

Fast forward to 2012 and I can’t get enough kale. I have been eating it regularly this winter, especially since there is such slim pickings for fresh veggies here in CO.

I regularly whip up a batch of baked kale chips to crunch on. Even family and friends, who were otherwise skeptical of chips made from kale leaves, thought they were delicious and were happy to snack on them. You really don’t need a recipe to make these. You can use whatever flavorings or oils you want. This is just how I always make them.

  1. Hi,
    I have yet to try kale (been reading on it though, and plan on growing some this year) You can eat the stems right? ex: could you keep the stems you cut from making these to throw in some soup or stew, or scrambled eggs maybe?
    Thanks,
    Helen

    • YES! The stems are full of nutrients. In fact, I’ve made the chips with the stems on before, but the stems don’t cook as fast, so they stay a little tough. However, saving them to scramble up with eggs or throw in soup is perfect! Waste not, want not! Thanks for stopping by Helen! :)

  3. I like kale and love the idea of kale chips. But every batch I’ve ever made comes out with a bitter finish. Is that just the way kale chips taste, or am I doing something wrong?

    • Hi Lyena – It will depend on the kale. I have had batches where the chips were on the bitter side, but also batches where they weren’t. Over-baking can also make them a little bitter. Hope that helps!
