Kale chips

Drinking beer, making chips, feeling O-K-ale!

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.

I bet hobbits would love this stuff: Bilgo BaGgins would totally dig it.  He has this recipe in the bag.

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.

No one would feel green with envy of this baking sheet.  Unless you love hanging out in 400 degree ovens.

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.

Kale chips: turning your frown upside brown!

So delicious, addictive, and slightly healthier than potato chips!

I can eat a whole head of kale this way in about 5 minutes.
