I’m so excited – I just bought the most amazing looking bunches of kale from our lovely little co-op! I bought loads of it so I can actually turn it into chips and still have some for salads and smoothies. As much as I absolutely adore my kale chippies, I rarely make them because the joy is always so short lived – they often don’t even make it out of the dehydrator because we eat them all before they are done! This recipe is one of my favourites.


  • 1 bunch kale (at least)
  • Olive oil
  • Himalayan or sea salt
  • Smokey paprika (or, any flavourings you like!)


  1. Take a big mixing bowl, and mix together oil, salt and paprika. You want just enough oil to cover the kale.
  2. Wash and chop kale into large chip sized pieces. You don’t have to, but I recommend cutting out the middle stalky bit – it just doesn’t make for enjoyable chewing.
  3. Massage kale with oil mix. Spread out on dehydrator trays, and dehydrate until crispy. Be patient! The crispiness will be well worth the wait.
