Oh kale, you are such a good leafy green. I wasn’t sure of you until I took baby steps and made kale chips. Then, I cooked you and put you in stir frys and with edamame and other veg. Then I massaged you and ate you raw. I still prefer you in chip form, maybe because they are so darn addicting. Not sure how to make kale chips? Here is how I do it!
1/2 bunch of kale (I can’t fit a whole bunch on my half sheet pans, you might be able to do that)
1 Tbsp of olive oil (been using garlic infused oil, and I just drizzle it)
1/4 – 1/2 tsp kosher salt
Preaheat the oven at 400. Wash the kale and make sure it is very dry. Tear it away from the stem and into pieces. Throw on a sheet pan and drizzle the oil over the leaves and add the salt. Massage the oil and salt into the leaves and uncurl them laying the leaves in a flat layer. Put into a hot oven for about 15 minutes. Keep checking on them to see if they are getting crisp and the edges will be lightly browned. Watch carefully, they burn easily!
You can also add some apple cider vinegar for salt and pepper chips, or nutritional yeast for cheesy chips.
