  • 1 head kale
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Sea salt for sprinkling

Dipping Sauce

  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 3 tablespoons tahini
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 325°F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Using a knife or kitchen shears, carefully remove the ribs from the kale and cut into bite sized pieces. Wash and thoroughly dry the kale with a salad spinner.
  • To make the dipping sauce, whisk all the ingredients together and set aside.
  • Lay kale on a baking sheet and toss with the olive oil.
  • Bake until crisp, turning the leaves halfway through, about 10-12 minutes. Sprinkle with sea salt as soon as you remove from the oven.
  • For the dipping sauce: In a small bowl, whisk the almond milk, tahini, lemon juice, cumin and some salt and pepper until combined. Serve with the kale chips.



Storage: Store any leftovers in an airtight container on the countertop for 1 day. You can also store them in the fridge for up to 3-4 days but they will soften in the fridge.
Make Ahead Tips: You can make the dipping sauce in advance and store it for up to 14 days. Then it's ready for dipping when you make the kale chips.
Substitutes: For best results, follow the recipe as is. However you can add any seasoning to the kale chips after they bake. You can also add any seasoning or spices to the dipping sauce.
Nutrition: Please note that the nutrition label provided is an estimate based on an online nutrition calculator. It will vary based on the specific ingredients you use.  This information should not be considered a substitute for a professional nutritionist’s advice. The nutrition value is for one serving with the dip, but this is likely more dip than you'll need for the amount of kale.
