Kale Chips

The kale in the greenhouse has gotten massive! I had Justin bring me some tonight to make kale chips.  The kale bakes up so light and flaky/crunchy.  I can eat ridiculous amounts of these.  Super easy.  Super healthy.  Super cheap.  Pretty much, they're super.

Which made me think of Goldfinger's "Superman".  -jen

Time:  20 minutes
Difficulty:  Way Easy
Makes:  however much kale you want to use
  • one large bunch of kale
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • grated Parmesan, optional
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

Remove kale leaves from stems and discard stems (or save in the freezer for soup stock!)  Tear larger leaves into big bite-size pieces.  Fill a Ziplock bag full of leaves.  Toss with 2 tablespoons of olive oil so that all the leaves are lightly coated (may need 3 tbsp if you really filled the bag).  Place in single layer on two baking sheets.  Lightly sprinkle salt and pepper over the top.  Bake for 17 minutes.

I like to sprinkle a little grated Parmesan or Asiago over the kale chips immediately after removing them from the oven.
