Microwave Kale Chips

Everyone loves kale, right? Of course, kale isn’t the only leafy green that’s fun to turn into chips.

I’m a big fan of baked greens, especially chard. Whether you’re making a crunchy salad, healthy snack, or a fun garnish, these microwave chips are ready in minutes. This method works well with any green, so feel free to use something other than kale.

Microwave Kale Chips

Bunch of curly kale or greens

1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted

Rosemary sea salt to taste

Rinse and dry kale. Tear kale leaves off their stems into small pieces. Coat leaves completely, working the oil into the leaves with a brief kale massage. Washed, dried, massaged . . . who wouldn’t love to be pampered like kale? Spread kale onto a microwave safe plate (it’s okay to overlap pieces). Sprinkle sea salt over kale. Microwave on high (in a 1500 watt oven) for 3 minutes 30 seconds, tossing kale halfway. Cook time will vary depending on how powerful your microwave is, so check on your greens.

  1. I just tried this recipe and I LOVE IT!

    Thank you so very much; I will never buy overpriced kale chips again!

    FYI: I used garlic powder, jarred minced garlic, table salt and light extra virgin olive oil. Threw them in a bag and squished it all around, then microwaved on a paper plate. My microwave is one of those smaller, lower wattage ones. 1:30 sec on one side, flip to other side and another minute and 30 seconds. Woofed ’em all down in less that that! Lol!


  1. […] the oven when they’re light and crispy. Sounds fun, but it is not. Of course, you can use a microwave to make kale chips. I love that […]
