Air Fryer Parmesan Kale Chips

Air Fryer Parmesan Kale Chips


In the air fryer, fresh kale transforms into crispy Parmesan-covered chips. They're not just tasty; they're a healthier snack choice compared to traditional chips, offering crunch and flavor without the guilt.


  • 1 bunch of fresh kale (about 6-8 large leaves)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt (adjust to taste)
  • Optional: 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder or other preferred seasonings


  • Prep the Kale:
    • Wash the kale leaves thoroughly and pat them dry with paper towels or a clean kitchen towel.
    • Remove the tough stems from the kale leaves, leaving only the leafy greens. Tear the kale into bite-sized pieces.
  • Season the Kale:
    • In a large mixing bowl, drizzle the torn kale leaves with olive oil. Use your hands to massage the oil into the leaves, ensuring they are evenly coated.
    • Sprinkle sea salt, grated Parmesan cheese, and any optional seasonings you like over the kale. Toss to coat, making sure the seasoning and cheese are distributed evenly.
  • Preheat the Air Fryer:
    • Preheat your air fryer to 350°F (180°C) for about 3-5 minutes.
  • Air Fry the Kale:
    • Place the seasoned kale leaves in the EaZy MealZ Round Air Fry Crisper Basket
    •  in a single layer. Do not overcrowd; you may need to work in batches.
    • Air fry the kale for 5-7 minutes, shaking the basket or tossing the kale every 2 minutes to ensure even cooking. The kale chips are ready when they are crispy and slightly browned but not burnt. Keep a close eye on them, as they can cook quickly.
  • Serve and Enjoy:
    • Remove the Parmesan kale chips from the EaZy MealZ Round Air Fry Crisper Basket and let them cool for a minute. They will become even crispier as they cool down.
    • Serve the kale chips as a flavorful and cheesy snack or side dish. Enjoy immediately!
