You may have tried kale sauteed as a side, blended into pesto, or massaged into salad. A new and delicious way to consume this nutritious green is as chips! Yes, magically this green turns into a crispy-crunchy healthy craving with just a little seasoning and a few minutes in the oven. Caution: you may want to eat these everyday. Try making them with all the kale varieties sold at Mission Community Market. Only three weeks left in this season!
1 bunch kale
olive oil to lightly coat kale
Sea salt, to taste
Preheat oven to 300°F. Rinse and dry the kale, then remove the stems and tough center ribs. Cut into large pieces, toss with olive oil in a bowl then sprinkle with salt. Arrange leaves in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes, or until crisp. **Watch them carefully in the last few minutes, as they turn from delicious to too dark brown in the blink of an eye!**
