Surprisingly delicious baked kale


The surprise favourite of my 10-year old daughter!

This super-healthy beast is made from 3 simple ingredients and tastes and has the texture of crispy seaweed from the Chinese restaurant – if that’s your thing.


  • Kale
  • Unflavoured coconut oil
  • Himalayan Pink Salt (any salt will be ok but  this one is more healthy and it’s pink)

Here’s how you do it

  1. Preheat the oven to around 180 degrees.

    A couple of generous handfuls of kale
    A couple of generous handfuls of kale
  2. Fill a baking tray with sides with the kale – a generous few good handfuls.
  3. Melt the coconut oil (couple of generous teaspoonfuls) in a small pan.
  4. Drizzle the melted oil over the kale and mix around the tray with a couple of forks to try to get oil on to all of the kale.
  5. Generously grind salt from a salt mill over the kale and refork the kale and grind a bit more salt.
  6. Bake in the oven for 5 minutes, then take out and move the kale around with a couple of forks, then return to the oven for another 5 mins.
  7. Some pieces may turn slightly brown on the edges.
  8. The kale will be ready when it is crispy to eat.
  9. Enjoy as a snack or as part of a meal.fullsizerender
