Microwaved Kale Chips

Don’t have an oven or don’t want to heat up the house? Try this easy recipe for making crispy and tasty kale chips in the microwave!

Serves: 4


  • 1 bunch washed kale
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt (optional)


  1. Remove stems from freshly washed kale. Place leaves in a large glass mixing bowl and add olive oil and salt (optional). Toss until kale is evenly coated with oil.
  2. Drape leaves evenly in a single layer around the edges and base of a glass bowl or plate. Try not to let them overlap, to allow even cooking.
  3. Place dish in microwave, and microwave on high for 3 minutes. Carefully remove dish (use an oven mitt, since the dish will be hot!), and test the leaves for crispiness.
  4. If the leaves are not crispy, microwave on high for another 3 minutes, then check again. Continue microwaving in 1 minute increments until the leaves are uniformly crispy (about 8-10 min total).
  5. Sprinkle with your favorite seasonings and enjoy!
