Bake for 10-15 minutes until light brown and crispy

Tips
Wash the kale thoroughly, particularly if it isn't organic as it's one of the Dirty Dozen (most heavily sprayed with pesticides).
Ensure kale is completely and utterly dry before you toss in the oil, or they won't crisp up properly.
While you're tossing you can very gently massage the oil into the leaves - you want them glistening but not drowning in oil.
Once you've tried the basic recipe you might want to experiment with different seasonings - suggestions include soy sauce, chilli, or paprika.
Another way to enjoy kale is in a Green Super Smoothie or a Green Smoothie for Beginners.

Enjoy! And if you discover any great flavour combinations please share it with our readers in the Comments Box.
