Crispy Kale

Looking for a new way to prepare kale? I admit, I’m not a huge fan of raw kale so I’m always thinking about creative ways to prepare it. Here’s a great way to cook it without adding any oil or sticking it in an oven. Quick, easy, and delicious! I like to use crispy kale as a snack or as a topping for salads, soups, etc. Here I’ve paired it with roasted vegetables and herbed yogurt. Enjoy!

  • 1 bunch lacinto kale aka Tuscan kale, ribs and stems removed and leaves coarsely torn
  • Pinch of Salt and pepper


  • Heat a large dry skillet over medium-high heat. I like to use cast iron, but other types will work fine.
  • Add kale in a single layer and cook, turning over once, until charred and crispy to your liking. This should take ~3-4 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
