Calories per serving of Roasted Kale Chips

36 calories of Kale, (1 cup, chopped)

30 calories of Olive Oil, (0.25 tbsp)

0 calories of Salt, (0.75 dash)


Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

Is the oil just for making the salt stick to the kale, or is there another reason for it, such as burn-reduction?

Could I spray each piece with 'I Can't Believe It's Not Butter' Spray to add seasonings for the same result, minus the extra calories from the oil?

Had baby kale, so tried it with that. Not bad! Didn't use any salt - garlic powder, olive oil, a sprinkle of parm cheese. Great!

Thank you everyone for suggestions on different seasonings. I have made these in the past with olive oil and garlic and salt and enjoy them. I have been having a craving for them so I bought Kale yesterday and I am going to try some of the different seasonings mentioned here. Submitted by:

These are also great as a low sodium snack. Substitute a Cajun Creole spice (no salt) for the salt and distribute in the same way as above. I find baking at a lower temperature of 250 degrees for about 40 minutes results in a very crisp and crunchy chip with no over browning. They are great! Submitted by:

I sprinkled a tiny bit of "Kernel's Low fat butter salt" on them and lowered the oven temp a bit. Submitted by:

This is a delicious way to eat kale and it satisfies your crunchy food urge! Instead of salt I use a lemon pepper and garlic mixture that I lightly sprinkle on and this way you are skipping the salt. Submitted by:

These are awesome. I tried and like even better using sunflower oil, popcorn salt, white cheddar popcorn seasoning/and or buttermilk ranch powdered dressing mix. Submitted by:

Maybe will work in a salty desire pinch but still tasted like kale to me.

I have made these twice now, the first time was a bust because I didn't cook them long enough and they turned out bitter and I added a little to much salt. The second time they turned out fantastic!!! I agree with other people about the salt a little bit sure does go a long way! Submitted by:

My family can easily eat a head of kale chips in no time. Even my somewhat picky 7 y/o is starting to ask for them. I've given sample bags to friends and they all rave about them. I'll have to try the various seasonings that folks have mentioned, as I usually just add salt & peppa. Submitted by:

Made these earlier today. Roasted in 250 degree oven for about 20 minutes..... with a light coating of sea salt. Probably could have used even less salt. I found them to be light and surprisingly satisfying. I would definitely try them again. Submitted by:

Super yummy!!!! I used one tablespoon of oil for a whole bag of kale and lightly (KEY WORD: LIGHTLY because kale shrinks) with "Real Salt" (a natural sea salt). Submitted by:

I used olive oil pam spray- it seemed to make it easier to coat the kale, then I added nutritional yeast to give additional flavor. Super yummy! I did bake them on the bottom rack of the oven @ 350 which worked pretty well- very few were a little too brown for my liking. Submitted by:

Really Surprisingly Good!!! I love the texture. I added vinegar with the salt. Next time I'm gonna add less salt and more vinegar. I cooked mine for 30 minutes at 250 F. Submitted by:

I made these and they turned out great! Only thing I would change is the oven temp. The outside/smaller leaves cooked much faster than the inner/larger leaves. The texture and taste are great. I made mine with garlic salt and immitation butter powder. Calories listed are not true, just look them up. Submitted by:

My version is to use Spicy Toasted Sesame oil. A splash of low sodium soy sauce, garlic powder, and sesame seeds. TOTALLY ADDICTED! I just bought 2 bags of Kale at Trader Joe's just for this purpose! Submitted by:

These were awesome! I just break the pieces up right onto the baking sheet, spray with 1 t. of olive oil and sprinkle with a little freshly ground salt. My grandaughter took avocado/garlic spread, put it on a pita triangle and I added roasted kale on top. EXCELLENT appetizer!!! Submitted by:

LOVE THEM! Even my kids could not stop eating them! Saw below the idea of jalapeno infused oil instead of the olive oil, will be trying that next and maybe some red pepper flakes (just a bit) instead of salt:) Submitted by:

I really love this easy way to add Kale to my diet. They were a little bitter, but I ate them with a Turkey sandwich and celery with huumus. The other tastes mingled well. I will definitely be making this a regular part of my nutrition Submitted by:
