(Picture-less for now, but try to imagine crisp green kale leaves happily baked on a baking sheet.)
No to be preachy, but kale is truly a magical wonder-veggie, and we should all eat more of it.
What better way than making them taste like potato chips?
1 bunch bakes up to a neat little bowl of chips that you and yours will happily gobble up and then ask for more.
1 bunch of kale (any kind–they’re all good for you!)
1 tbsp olive oil
salt to taste
1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
2. Remove the leaves from the stem, and tear into chip-sized pieces (if desired).
3. Rinse and dry your kale leaves.
4. Toss the leaves with the olive oil.
5. Season with salt to taste.
6. Arrange the leaves on a baking sheet in a single layer.
7. Bake for 10-20 minutes, or until desired crispness (not browned! brown = bitter).
P.S. I made kale chips for my class as their “treat” (ha! That’ll teach ’em!). If a group of 3rd and 4th graders can walk away loving kale chips, so will you.
