I did nothing fancy with this recipe. Three simple ingredients went in the oven, and 8 minutes later out came something magically different, surprisingly smaller, and disturbingly yummy. There are only two tricks to this ridiculously delicious health food:
1. Keep the pieces similar in size.
2. Watch them CAREFULLY. There's a fine line between crispy and burnt. (Like, a 30 second difference. Really.)
So here it is, in it's simple glory: Baked Kale Chips, via allrecipes.com.
1 bunch kale
1/2 teaspoon salt
- Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a non-insulated cookie sheet with parchment paper.
- With a knife or kitchen shears carefully remove the leaves from the thick stems and tear into bite size pieces. Wash and thoroughly dry kale with a salad spinner (or dish towel). Spritz kale with oil and sprinkle with salt.
- Bake until the edges brown but are not burnt, 7-12 minutes.
- Devour. Drive to grocery store, buy more kale, and repeat.
