  • 1 pound kale
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 Limoneira® lemon
  • 1 ⁄2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 ⁄2 crushed red pepper flakes
  • 3 tablespoons Parmigiano-Reggiano grated


  • Preheat oven to 350°F, and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. (Or, if you have just one, you can cook in batches).
  • Wash the kale thoroughly, and remove the leaves from the tougher stems. Tear it into chip-sizes pieces, and place in a bowl.
  • With your clean hands, lightly massage the oil into the kale leaves – make sure they are coated, but not so much they are dripping.
  • Pop into the oven for 12 minutes. The kale should darken, and become crispy.
  • Take it out of the oven, and sprinkle with the salt, red pepper flakes, and grated cheese. Squeeze about half the lemon juice on it.
  • Return to the oven for another minute or two. Don’t over cook.
  • Remove from the oven, and squeeze the rest of the lemon juice on the chips while they’re still warm.
  • Cool, and enjoy.
