Make These Tonight!

No. seriously. Get some kale on your way home and make these tonight. You'll thank me.


No doubt you've heard about these. I'm not sure where the idea originated, but I've read about them in a few places and the consensus was that they're fabulous. And, boy, were they right. These rock.  

So simple. Start with a full head of kale. Trim the stems off and rub a few tablespoons of olive oil into the leaves. Lay out in a single layer on two large cookie sheets and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast at 425 degrees for 5 minutes or until leaves are dark green, starting to turn brown, and crispy all over.

Remove from the oven and lay on paper towels to cool. If you can wait that long.

I dare you not to eat a whole pan all by yourself. But if you can restrain yourself, serve these to your friends as a cocktail snack and watch them freak out with joy.

I made these last night, and they were extraordinary! Thanks for sharing. I can't wait to get home tonight and make more. In fact, we are going to the Farmer's Market this evening, in part, to get more kale to make more of these. I think you have started something. Best of all--kale is great for you, too! I can eat tons of it without feeling bad at all!
