Kale is one of my favourite greens to use in the kitchen. When fresh, it’s wonderful in salads. You can also add it to soups and stews, sauté it, make pesto and other dressings, add it to smoothies, and of course – make kale chips.. what a yummy, crunchy snack!

One evening, after catering a big event, I had a lot of kale leftover. I was looking for a fun, new kale chip recipe idea so decided to take advantage of the surplus. Looking through the spice cupboard, I noticed the garam masala jar. One look and I already knew, this one was going to be tasty!


Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 30 minutes
Serves 1-2

Nut free Gluten free



  • 1 medium-sized bunch of kale (5 cups, loosely packed)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp Garam Masala
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt


Preheat oven to 300°F.

Wash and completely dry the kale.

Remove the leaves from the stems, then tear the leaves into chip-size pieces.

Place kale, olive oil, and spices into a bowl. Massage the oil and spices into the kale for a couple of minutes.

Scatter kale in one even layer on a baking sheet.

Bake for 15-20 minutes then rotate the kale in the pan.

Bake for another 10-15 minutes, until crisp.

Remove the pan from the oven and set aside for 5 minutes before serving.
