Tahini kale chips

National kale day! That was my food for today and this recipe  was a tough one for me. I retried it because if you had seen the result of my first attempt, you would have thought “Who’s gonna eat that.” But today, it really turned out good. The kale chips are not attractive so I did my best to make them look a bit tasty. 🙂

As soon as they came out of the oven, my daughter wanted to grab some. I told her to wait so I could take a picture, because it goes fast. At least it’s an healthy snack!

If I had a dehydrator, I would have done it there, so that’s why I made it in the oven. I also wanted to add a little touch to it, make it differently, that’s why I tried tahini. It was really worth trying it if you like sesame.

One little funny thing, today was really windy and when I was taking picture of the kale on the pan, it kept flying. That’s why the lemon is holding it! 🙂

Preparation time: 10 minutesKale chips

Cooking time: 1 hour

  • 1 bunch of organic kale
  • 2tbsp. (30ml) of tahini
  • 2tbsp. (30ml) of sunflower oil
  • 1 tsp. (5ml) of organic lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper
  1. Preheat your oven to 250º.
  2. Remove the stem from your kale leaves.
  3. In a big bowl, combine the tahini, the sunflower oil, the lemon juice, salt and pepper.
  4. Add your kale and mix it well so your leaves get covered by the sauce.
  5. Spread the kale on a cookie sheet and make sure they don’t overlap. It will keep it’s humidity and won’t dry well.
  6. Put it in the oven for about 1 hour or until completely dry. You might need to turn the ones that don’t dry.

  1. Kale isn’t attractive, but it sure packs a punch with nutrients. I hear form others that kale chips are tasty. I am out of kale for a couple of days. I am ready to try this, too. I need a new dehydrator.


    • I know it’s best to have it raw but this recipe was in my mind and I had to try it. I’m looking for a dehydrator now. I’m just waiting for sales. 🙂


  2. Never heard of Tahini and never eaten Kale. This could be a possible future attempt for me. Thanks for sharing!!! I need more healthy foods in my diet. New bloglovin follower too!!!


  3. I just made these minus the oil, lemon & pepper…I was out of them 🙂 but still they came out amazing. Thank you! I’ve made them with just olive oil before and they kept burning…this is a keeper.
