I bought too much kale at the farmers’ market the other week and had to figure out how to eat it. I’ve been getting slightly bored with my usual braised kale with cider vinegar recipe. So I googled “purple kale recipe” and found this: http://smittenkitchen.com/2010/03/baked-kale-chips/
I tore the kale into bite size pieces, pre-heated the oven to 350 degrees, and lay out the leaves on a baking sheet. I sprinkled it with a little olive oil and gave it a light toss. Once the oven was ready, I popped the sheet in and waited about 6 minutes.
The baked kale turned out to be delicious! The bitterness was replaced with a earthy nuttiness and the crunch was unbelievably satisfying.
