Ginger Miso Kale Chips

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

This recipe is Nut-Free… no nuts were harmed in the making of this recipe.  haha

Taking photos of kale chips is not my favorite thing to do… but eating them, now that’s another story.  The Lays Potato Chip slogan says, “You can’t eat just one”…well shoot with kale chips it’s more like, “You can’t just 10, 15 or 20!”  I love this kale chip because it has a slight hint of sweetness that really brightens the flavor.  The other unique flavor profile in this recipe is the use of miso.   If you are unfamiliar with miso, I encourage you to give it a try.  I know it’s not a common ingredient that you will find in most people’s fridge, but then, we are not most people, now are we?  :)  My favorite brand is South River.  It is raw, and made from chickpeas, not soy.  Personally, I can’t do soy so that is why it is important to me to have an alternative.  A while back I wrote a post on miso.  Go check it out.  But make sure you come back and try this recipe!

recipe slightly modified from Living Vision


  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup raw tahini
  • 3 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp red or white unpasteurized miso
  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 Tbsp raw apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 tsp chopped garlic
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 bunch (10 oz weight) organic kale


  1. Sauce – Blend all ingredients until silky smooth.   Set aside for 10-30 minutes, giving the chia seeds time to expand and absorb some of the dressing.
  2. De-stem 1 bunch of kale and place in a large bowl.
  3. Pour the sauce over the kale and with your hands, massage the sauce into the kale, making sure everything is well coated.
  4. Place on the teflex sheets that come with your dehydrator.
  5. Dry at 115 for 3 to 4 hours.
  6. Remove from teflex sheets and continue dehydrating for another couple of hours or until completely dry.

    Just wanted to leave you a note to say I have been making your kale chips for a few months now. They are amazing and the ginger miso ones are my favorite. They’re also the only way I can get my toddler to eat greens, other than blending them into a smoothie. Thanks!!!

      Thank you Sondra, I loved hearing from you. :) The kale chips are rather addictive, aren’t they? hehe To think, it might be possible for your little one to view kale chips as the norm… that is soooo cool! Have a wonderful evening and again, it was great to hear from you. amie sue

    It’s time to get kale chips back in our diet. Delighted to see the enormous variety you’ve come up with. I love ginger & miso, so maybe I’ll try this or the black pepper sour cream version this coming weekend. As always, I’ll let you know how (wonderfully) it goes. Thanks.

    • amie-sue says:

      Hi Ben… get your addiction on! hehe I love hearing from you. Have a wonderful week! amie sue

      • ben says:

        Brilliant creation. It came at the end of a long food-prep day, and I did the lazy chef version. Meaning I made the dressing with only miso, ginger (lots of ginger), oil & salt. The best kale chip ever. Thanks as always.

        Now onwards, to try your other variations in the weeks to come.

        • amie-sue says:

          Awesome Ben… I never knew that I was a miso lover till I created this kale chips. I love finding new and exciting flavors! Have a blessed week, amie sue

    Love all your recipes! Have you tried using fresh grated ginger in this recipe?

    • amie-sue says:

      Hello Mee, I tend to use either or, just depends on what I have on hand. Fresh is always the best! I might use about 1/2 Tbsp of fresh, just depends on how strong you like it. :) Have a great evening, amie sue

    Hi there Amie,

    I just came across this page and realized that the original recipe you adapted this from was one of my own that I submitted to the cafe gratitude blog some 4 years ago. I am honored that you found inspiration in the recipe, and wanted to ask if you would so kindly use my name and link Chaya-Ryvka and the original recipe: http://www.thelivingvision.com/ginger-miso-dressing-raw-kale-chip-recipe/ where you currently have Cafe Gratitude. I greatly appreciate it and love what you are doing here! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
