Sour Cream ‘n’ Onion Flavored Kale Chips

I have been trying to get on the kale chip bandwagon for the last two years but I was never impressed with any of the recipes I tried.  That was until last night when I magically whipped up this batch of kale chips which are reminiscent of sour cream ‘n’ onion potato chips!  What a fun and delicious way to eat your leafy greens!



Sour Cream ‘n’ Onion Flavored Kale Chips


  • 1 head of dino kale (washed, de-stemmed and torn into pieces)

  • 2 T. extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 t. liquid smoke

  • 1 T. apple cider vinegar

  • 1/2 – 1 t. garlic powder

  • 1/4 – 1/2 t. onion powder

  • 3 pinches of sea salt


  • Place the de-stemmed kale in a large bowl.

  • Sprinkle the olive oil, liquid smoke, apple cider vinegar, garlic powder, onion powder and sea salt over the kale.

  • Mix very thoroughly to ensure all pieces of the kale are covered with the seasoning.

  • Pour the kale onto a large baking pan sprayed with olive oil and spread the kale pieces out evenly.

  • Bake at 285 degrees Fahrenheit for 45 minutes turning the kale pieces occasionally.  Watch carefully so they are crispy but not burnt, especially around the 35 minute mark.  Oven times may vary.



These are best eaten the same day they are prepared.  However, with that being said, they were a fabulous tasty addition to my salad the next day.  They added a fantastic flavor and texture to my daily lunch salad.

    I saw amazing Kale at the farmers market, Central and Northern, every Saturday morning. But I had no idea what to do with it! Now I have ideas! Thanks so much!!

    1. Jen

      Hi Tina! Kale is so awesome ~ you can use it in smoothies, kale chips, steamed as a side dish, etc. I wish our farmers market was open but with living in Minnesota that season is short-lived. Thanks for stopping by!

  14. Johnathan

    Like Dov said, I like Kale a lot! I’ve never considered baking it, or adding all of the above. However, I’ll probably give it a whirl. It sounds good… I’m not a fan of oil or salt… but we’ll see.

    1. Jen

      Hi Johnathan! What’s your favorite way to use kale? Thanks for stopping by and I hope you try the “chip” recipe because it’s divine!!!

    I love this. I just started working on my diet in January. Not to diet, but to improve my nutritional habits and this is a great way to do that.

    1. Jen

      Hi Kevin. Congrats on making some changes in your lifestyle ~ keep up the great work! 🙂
