Hemp Seed Kale Chips

My 93 year-old grandfather eating his first kale chip and loving it.

Are you in Phase 1 and looking for family weekend crowd pleaser? These will do the trick. There are tons of kale chip variations floating around the web but this one is a favorite for us because it uses Hemp Seed Butter - makes the chips especially satiating. But you can easily make them with Kale, olive oil, salt and a sprinkling of hemp seeds if you like. The trick is to be sure the kale is washed and thoroughly dried before putting in the oven and cook till they're browning on the edges for max crunch factor. 

*Update: Both Greenling and Whole Foods now offer pre-washed and chopped kale making this recipe even more of a snap! 

  • 1 head of kale, rinsed and thoroughly dried (or else chips will not crisp up)
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil 
  • Hemp Seed Butter or Tahini 
  • Himalayan Salt to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Roughly chop kale. Lay kale in a single layer on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Spread several dollops of hemp seed butter with the back of a spoon throughout the chips (it's okay if it's not entirely even). Roast chips in oven until crisp, about 10-15 minutes. Keep a good eye on the chips near the end as they can quickly go from crispy to burnt. Salt to taste as soon as you remove from oven.
