Practice It: Crunchy Oven-Roasted Kale Chips Recipe
Ingredients (Choose organic if possible and available.)
2 large bags of fresh kale, washed and patted dry with a towel (We typically get lacinato kale a.k.a. dinosaur kale.)
Extra virgin olive oil (enough to thinly coat the kale)
Minced garlic or garlic powder
Himalayan pink salt
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Pull kale leaves from the stem and tear the leaves so that they are in the size you like. (They will shrink once roasted.)
Add kale and other ingredients to a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Mix well and spread evenly so the kale is in a single layer.
Roast until the kale chips are a deeper green and look crispy, about 20 minutes. Stir them mid-way through the baking time to ensure even baking.
Serve immediately and save leftovers for the following day.
