Print Recipe


  • 7 cups kale
  • 2-4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste. Coarse salt can also be used.)


  • Wash kale thoroughly.
  • Remove thick stems from kale (I chop the stems and saute them well to avoid waste).
  • Chop or tear kale leaves into large pieces.
  • Place kale pieces into a large bowl.
  • Add olive oil and mix to coat.
  • Add salt and mix to coat
  • Spread kale in a not-too-thick layer on dehydrator trays (or cookie sheets if using an oven).
  • Place trays in dehydrator and dehydrate until crispy dry. (I dry these at about 125°F and they take about 2½ hours.)
  • Store in airtight containers (I use both plastic containers and bags, though be careful with the bags as these will crush easily).
  • Hide from kids because these can really be quite tasty :-)!
