what you'll need
what i do
Start by turning your oven on 350F or like 175C. Wash the amount of kale that you plan to cook, but keep in mind that the kale shrinks once it’s in the oven. Imagine yourself eating a bag of Lay’s chips, then decide how much you’ll need.
Once its washed, tear the leaves from their stalk and then tear those larger leaves into smaller pieces and lay them flat on a baking sheet.
Take some paper towel to pat them dry or let them air dry if you’re feeling eco-friendly. They don’t have to be very dry, just no excess water. Then place them in the oven. Mine are usually in there for 6-8 minutes. They cook quickly, so definitely keep an eye on them, you should notice browning on the ends.
Def don’t overcook or undercook these, they only taste good (to me) when perfect.
Here’s a test to see if they’re done well!
Next, place them in a bowl, cover them with a teaspoon or 2 of olive oil, then sprinkle a little, or a lot of salt on them, and that’s all! Thank me later. Perhaps consider making a bowl of this instead of microwave popcorn for your next movie night. Or not.
