Kale Chips

Ingredients

1 bunch of kale, preferably Lacinato or "dinosaur" kale (pre-chopped, bagged kale works, too)

1 tablespoon olive oil

Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

Instructions

-Preheat oven to 350 degrees

-For easy cleanup, line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper

-Remove the tough center ribs from the kale and cut into large pieces. Wash and rinse and add to

a salad spinner to remove all the water. If the kale is wet when you place it in the oven, it'll steam

and turn soggy.

coated

-Arrange leaves in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet (you may need two baking sheets)

-Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until the leaves are crackly when touched yet still dark green

-Remove from oven and eat while they're hot.
