Let’s just get this right out there… I can’t believe I actually made kale chips. I’m not exactly a human who looks at a completely unattractive piece of green vegetation and then makes the decision to put it in my mouth.
I’m a human who makes the decision to run over it with the lawnmower.
The only reason I went ahead with this insane plan was because Pinterest told me I had to. “Roast Kale, Sher! Roast it like you’ve never roasted before!”
So I did. Because Pinterest is the boss of me.
Cut away the hard stems and cut the remaining kale into pieces. I learned to try and get mine somewhat similar in size so that they cook evenly.
Wash the kale and dry it. I put mine between layers of paper towels and patted it like it was a puppy that had just saved a kitten from a burning building.
Put about a tablespoon of olive oil in a big bowl and drop in the kale. Swirl and swish until it’s all coated.
Lay it out on a cookie sheet. (No need to spray it the sheet – it won’t stick.)
Sprinkle it with a little sea salt.
Bake in a 300 oven for 20 minutes.
The kale comes out of the oven so crispy and oddly delicious. I wish I could describe it to you, but I’m terrible at describing things. (That’s why my adult children still don’t know what “red” is.)
I love these, and so do the other two humans I force-fed them to. Totally addicting, and totally loaded with vitamin K!
I’m as surprised as you are. Trust me!
