Cayenne Kale Chips

Cayenne Kale Chips

I serve these a nibbles and they are very ‘moreish’. I was talking about kale chips over lunch with friends (as one does!) and the waitress overheard and said she added cayenne pepper to hers. So I thought it worth a try in addition to the oil, salt and pepper I normally use and it pepped the kale up nicely.


6 oz chopped kale (I buy it pre-chopped and try to avoid the tough stalks)

2 tbsp. olive oil

salt and freshly ground black pepper

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper


Wash the kale and dry it very well (else it will not cook properly)

Put the rest of the ingredients in a bowl and mix together.

Add the kale to the bowl and toss it in the oil mixture.

Transfer kale to a metal baking tray and place in oven at 350 degrees for 15 minutes, then turn kale to make sure all parts are cooked and place in oven for a further five minutes (if not cooked and crispy by then, keep adding 5 minutes to the cooking time).
