Lemon Garlic Kale Chips

Farmer's market goodies tend to go in one day, maybe two if a larger quantity was bought. When I bought kale, I was debating between two flavours of kale chips. I settled on lemon garlic this time, but I'll probably make the other flavour sometime soon. I'm excited for this other one. Are you excited? *suspense*

These turned out well enough that when doing groceries today, my partner asked me if I could make kale chips again tonight (the ones from this recipe were made a week ago). He doesn't dislike veggies, but it can be difficult to get him to eat all his fruit and veggie portions for the day, so whenever he asks me for something with veggies, I make sure to make it.

All I had on hand for these was bottled lemon juice, but I'm sure fresh lemons would be ten times better.

Lemon Garlic Kale Chips

1 medium bunch green kale
1 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp lemon juice
salt to taste

Preheat oven to 350F.

Rip the kale off the thick stems. Cut it into pieces (similar size as for salads). Sprinkle the rest of the ingredients on the leaves and mix it all together using your hands.

Bake for about 15-20 minutes, turning them halfway through.


  1. I used your recipe to make kale chips for the first time and they turned out delicious! I got a few lemons but only needed one for a pretty big bunch of kale. Thank you!

  2. I'm definitely going to try this out! THANK YOU for sharing!

    1. My pleasure, and thank you! Hopefully it worked out well!
