Chard Chips!

So, I was finally pressured into trying to make "chips" from greens due to an old head of Swiss chard I had in my fridge and did not want to waste!

Thank goodness for VeganMoFo, and for running across this lovely recipe post for Kale Chips by Sonnet! I used her recipe to make my Chard Chips and it worked out great.  Without MoFo, that chard probably would have bit the dust.

Here they are...Chard Chips!

Just preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Get out a nice, dark cookie sheet and spray it or wipe it with olive oil (probably like 1 tablespoon all together).  Take out the ribs from your greens and rip up the leaves into pretty big pieces.  Arrange in one layer on your baking sheet.  Spray with a little more olive oil on top.

Bake for 10 minutes, remove, flip the Chard Chips (this is a little tricky, Swiss chard is more delicate than kale, and I had to use my fingers to flip the pieces, but it was fine) and bake about 5 minutes more until nice and crunchy but not burnt!

Sprinkle with salt and nutritional yeast, and serve.

Almost Friday...when you can eat your chard chips and watch movies :-)


  1. This is great as kale is not widely available in Australia and I feel sad whenever I see posts about kale chips which is often. Will definitely be trying out some chard chips, thanks for sharing! :D

  2. These look very easy, too. I will try them. Thank you, VeganFazool! :)))

  3. Mel, I think you could do chips with almost any leafy green...let's try some other ones and see! Please post back if you give it a go.

    And, thanks to my old FB friend, Jan for voting for these Chard Chips! Everyone seems excited about them!!


  4. You can do collards, too, guys!
