After seeing Kale Chips mentioned on a zillion blogs (with topics from locavores to healthy food for kids), we finally tried them. The reviews from our household were mixed: My husband loved them, my 18-month-old liked them, and my nearly 3-year-old said: "Yuck Mama. That's leaves." I fell somewhere in the middle - I enjoyed the flavour, but not the texture. They cooked up nice and crispy, but the thin kale was too papery for my tastes.
4 leaves of kale
1 Tblsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
Remove the kale leaves from the stems. (I found it easiest to hold onto the stem and run my hand up to remove the leaves.) Wash and dry well, and tear into bite-sized pieces. Toss kale pieces with olive oil and salt until evenly coated. Place in a single layer on a cookie sheet and bake at 350' for 10 minutes. Serve immediately.
