WFH Recipe: Everything Bagel Kale Crisps

Written by: Carla Contreras

These Everything Bagel Kale Crisps are a delicious way to get your greens in. I use minimal oil, and the result is super crispy and will last up to 3 days in an airtight container. You can make your own Everything Bagel Spice or buy it.


  • 1 bunch of kale, stems removed

  • 2 tbsp. of Everything Bagel Spice, divided

  • 1 small spray of avocado oil per leaf or 1/8 tsp. olive oil per leaf


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F

  2. On a rimmed lined baking sheet, place 1/2 bunch of kale and spray with the oil. Sprinkle with 1 tbsp. Everything Bagel spice and toss.

  3. Bake 10 to 12 minutes (this will depend on your oven; note that this isn’t a project to walk away from).

  4. Repeat with the remaining kale.

  5. Store up to 3 days in an airtight container.

DIY Everything Bagel Spice


  • 1/4 cup dried onion flakes

  • 1/4 cup dried garlic flakes

  • 1/4 cup poppy seeds

  • 1/4 cup black sesame seeds

  • 1/4 cup white sesame seeds

  • 1 tbsp. Maldon salt or flaky sea salt


Place all ingredients in a jar and shake! And put it on everything: eggs, avocado toast, salmon, salads, and anything you would eat an everything bagel with! You can store in the fridge up to 3 months.
