Kale chips anyone?

As many of you know, Tim and I are participating in a CSA this year. About a week and a half ago, we got a huge batch of kale with our shipment. Neither of us had a clue what to do with kale, but I had heard of kale chips before, and Tim had found a recipe online. I absolutely love them. I am not joking-I ate enough that if it was anything more substantial than baked lettuce, I would have vomited. Plus, they were about the easiest thing in the world to make. We just tore the kale off of the stems into 2-3 inch pieces and put them on a baking sheet. We used the same theory as the person who posted the Best Broccoli of Your Life recipe-they get way crispier if you don’t wash them, and they are baking at 350 degrees-the germs will fry. Tim drizzled some olive oil over it (eyeballed it-sorry) and added some garlic, salt and pepper. Then we baked them at 350 degrees for 20 minutes (keep an eye on them-the recipe said 10-15…just go until they are crispy). I could not stop eating them. Because of the olive oil, they definitely have some fat and calories, but as long as you don’t get too heavy handed with the oil, they are also super healthy. Let me know if you are as in love with them as we were!

    Dawn, love these too, another thing that makes it easier: at bed bath and beyond (or probably any similar store) you can buy something called a “misto”. It is an easy way to spritz on olive oil and probably cuts down on the amount you need.
