kale chips

Who here manages to get their recommended share of green leafy veggies? Now that I've discovered kale chips, we'll be gobbling down bunches of the stuff with grins on our faces. I could very well look like Popeye in a couple of months.

kale chips
serves 3-4

1 bunch kale
olive oil
salt -- I used fine-grain sea salt, but I've heard seasoning salt is good too

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Wash your kale and dry it well (I love my salad spinner.) Tear into bite-size pieces. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt, and toss to coat well. Spread on large cookie sheet that's been lined with parchment paper or one of those non-stick mats. Bake for about 15 minutes, until the kale is deep green, crispy, and not yet charred. Timing is everything -- I recommend you start watching it more closely after 10 minutes even though my last batch took almost 20 minutes. Enjoy warm from the oven -- and go ahead, lick your fingers!

Grand scale success! Everyone in my family enjoyed them; even the kiddies. I added a couple of cloves of garlic to the pan and it gave it just the right garlicky edge.

I can't thank you enough for posting a recipe that I can make for everyone to enjoy my weakness for kale.

Seconds! They even had seconds!
