Kale chips

My aunt introduced me to this very interesting and addictively tasty way to enjoy kale. I haven't cooked it myself yet, but there's not much to it...

debone kale and cut/shred into large mouthful size,
toss with a little olive oil and salt (or other seasoning),
spread on two or three cookie sheets,
bake/dry in oven at 250° for 20 minutes.
(allrecipes suggests 10-15 min at 350)

It's crispy, thin, lacey, and delicate. It dissolves in the mouth with a mild bitterness. Great snack food.

I love making kale chips. What you do is remove the stems. I like to spritz them with EVOO and then add spices--chilpote chile is one favorite. I linei the baking sheets with parchment paper. They are a big hit whenever I make them and serve them to guests. They also keep fairly well.

kale is an interesting vegetable. i've had it raw in salads, sauteed with fish (okay, actually that's for tonite) and last week made it into a soup.

I make a lot of kale chips in the summer and fall when kale is plentiful in the garden. You can eat kale chips without the guilt associated with potato chips.

The only problem I have with kale chips is that if I am making them myself then it takes way too much kale to make a worthwhile amount. Or maybe i just eat too much of it
