Finals week… prelims… blurk. Chop up your kale into 1 inch or so size pieces, like chips. This is a recipe where I actually believe in preheating, rare. 400.
Throw your kale, a tablespoon of olive oil or two (I ran out and added some vegetable oil), and a healthy splash of balsamic into a plastic or ziploc bag. Squish it around so all the kale gets covered, and then spread it out on your baking sheet.
Bake it and WATCH IT LIKE A HAWK. 5-10 minutes. This goes from perfectly crisp to horribly burned in about 30 seconds. How long you cook is your preference, but I like it when the whole chip looks dry and the edges are lightly browned.
So delicious, addictive, and slightly healthier than potato chips!
I can eat a whole head of kale this way in about 5 minutes.
Recipe from my head:
Preheat your oven to 400
Cut up a bunch of kale into small pieces
Throw in a plastic bag with 2 TB olive oil, 2 TB balsamic vinegar
Spread out on a baking sheet for 8-10 minutes or until as crisp as you like.
Sprinkle with salt and eat!
