Accidentally made kale chips

....and OMG - surprisingly good!

I was roasting some sweet potato wedges and while I had the oven on at 400F, I remembered I had a couple of handfuls of leftover kale from a soup I made the other day. I tossed them in a tiny bit of olive oil and crushed garlic and threw them on the roasting pan.

I intended to just kind of roast the kale a little bit, but after 5 minutes or so I checked them and they were light, crispy, garlicky, and so good! I inhaled them.

Love it when an accident turns out good. I'll definitely make these again on purpose.

I could eat an entire pan of kale this way, Rob could take them or leave them, but I find them quite good.

I think I'm addicted, I've gone through 2 bunches of kale since I posted this.

I'm new to this...how do you do yours, BC? I strip the leaves, put them in a ziplock, add a little olive oil, finely chopped garlic and mush them up in the bag. Spread them on a sheet pan and roast at 400F for 6 or 7 minutes or so until crispy. Do you have any other tips?

I usually just toss them on the pan, but I like your method.

Haha! So funny. I love kale chips, but I've never made them myself. I'll need to give this a try soon. :-)
